BTS vaults from No. 50 to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated June 25), returning as the top musical act in the U.S. for a 21st total week on top, and for the first time since last August, thanks to the opening week success of the South Korean superstars’ new release, Proof.
The album debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 314,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. in the week ending June 16, according to Luminate. The act adds its sixth No. 1, as the set starts with the year’s biggest week for an album by a group, both in units earned and album sales (266,000 sold). The only larger week in 2022 has been the debut frame of Harry Styles’ Harry’s House (521,000 units, of which 330,000 were in album sales; June 4).
