For the second year running, BTS has topped IFPI‘s Global Artist Chart!
Last year, BTS ranked No.1 with their album MAP OF THE SOUL : 7 and No.2 with BE (Deluxe Edition). MAP OF THE SOUL : 7 THE JOURNEY ranked at No.8.
BTS became the first act in history to have two albums hold the Top 2 spots in the same year, and also the second act since Michael Jackson to rank three albums in the Top 10 Global Album Sales chart.
Now, BTS is making history again! They are now the first ever to rank as IFPI’s best-selling artist of the year for two years in a row (2020 and 2021). For 2021, BTS ranked No.1 on the Global Artist Chart for BE (Essential Edition), BTS The Best, and Butter, surpassing albums by Taylor Swift, Adele, Drake, and more!
