As of the recent Billboard update, BTS MOTS7 has debuted at #1 on the BB200 chart! There total album units is 422k, a debut best for 2020, and a debut best in pure album sales with over 340,000 copies sold!!! This really speaks to the growth of BTS fandom since Persona which sold 196,000 pure sales! Congrats to BTS and Army💜💜💜

Article Note: I appreciate the mention of BTS not using bundles when achieving these sales, but find it questionable how they focus on the 4 album versions as a sales tactic when they made NO mention of Taylor's 5 versions and haven't called out major American artists who use bundling with everything ranging from condoms to tour tickets. Seems like a one sided criticism.

Can you actually imagine if they had tour bundles or a collab with Line with BT21 bundles during comebacks? Billboard would be so triggered they'd ban bundling altogether 😂 I'm still flabbergasted at how they managed to get 400k+ in the first week from just sales and streams without even needing bundles compared to western counterparts. Heck, Bieber had 231k first week and he included ticket bundles for his release.

I genuinely believe BTS would be able to reach 1m+ if they decided to bundle

I had the same thought😂 They would ban bundles immediately I think it could double the current number lmao

But honestly BTS never ceases to amaze me, they just keep growing to new heights💜
