The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Sept. 8-dated chart (where Love Yourself: Answer debuts at No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard‘s websites on Wednesday, Sept. 5 — one day later than usual due to the Labor Day holiday on Sept. 3 in the U.S.
‘Love Yourself: Answer’ follows BTS’ previous chart-topper, ‘Love Yourself: Tear’. The latter launched at No. 1 on the chart dated June 2 with 135,000 units earned in its first week, of which 100,000 were in traditional album sales. BTS is the only K-pop act with a No. 1 album, and obviously the first with two leaders. They were also the first (and still only) with a top 10 set, when Love Yourself: Her — the first of the Love Yourself trilogy — debuted and peaked at No. 7 (Oct. 7, 2017).
