BTS has now spent 13 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart, as its new LP Be debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 (chart dated Dec. 5) with 242,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
The seven-member South Korean superstars also score their third No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, as "Life Goes On" debuts at the summit. It follows "Dynamite" (No. 3 this week) and the act's Jawsh 685/Jason Derulo collab "Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)," which reached No. 1 in September and October, respectively.
With its 13th week at No. 1, BTS extends its record for the most weeks spent atop the Artist 100 among duos/groups. BTS also surpasses Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran for the sixth-most weeks spent at the summit overall, dating to the chart's 2014 start.
