BTS Rules All 15 Spots On Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales Chart For Third Time In History
After dominating Billboard's Top 200 Album chart, BTS fortified its dominance in the worldwide music industry with 15 tracks from "Proof" ruling the Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart. In simpler terms, every single spot on the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart was taken by one of the songs from "Proof" for this week.
Although "Proof" mostly has songs from the Bangtan Boys' previous albums, the top three places on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales Chart were taken by the brand new songs, which include the title song "Yet to Come" at #1, "Run BTS" at #2, and "For Youth" at #3.
The other songs by BTS that are currently on the chart include "Filter", "Euphoria", "Boy In Luv", "Blood Sweat & Tears", "Danger", "Cypher Pt.3: Killer (featuring Supreme Boi)", "Spring Day", "I NEED U", "N.O", "Run", "No More Dream", and "Born Singer".
"Proof" has topped the Billboard Canada Album charts, World Album, Tastemaker Album, Top Album Sales, and Top Current Album. "Yet To Come" has been listed on Digital Song Sales charts, World Digital Song Sales, and Billboard Global (except in the US).
Incidentally, this is the third time that BTS has achieved such a feat of ruling all the 15 spots on a week's World Digital Song Sales chart. The mega band had earlier achieved this feat on September 8 in 2018 and March 7 in 2020.
"Proof", which is an anthology album by BTS, made its debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, making it the band's sixth chart-topper. According to a Billboard report, the K-pop band has sold 3,14,000 equivalent album units in the United States in the week ending June 16. Furthermore, a major portion of that unit figure was due to CD album sales.
"Proof" was released on June 10. Soon after its release, BTS announced that they would be taking a hiatus to focus on their individual ventures. The band's golden maknae Jungkook will soon be dropping his solo collaboration with Charlie Puth called "Left And Right" on June 24. Kim Taehyung aka V will be reuniting with the Wooga Squad, who are his friends from the South Korean industry, "for a spin-off on In the Soop".
Meanwhile, J-Hope is going to make his own history by headlining the Lollapalooza 2022 on July 31. It will be the first time in the history of a major US music festival that a South Korean artist will headline the main stage.
