BLACKPINK‘s second full-length studio album, BORN PINK has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
BORN PINK marks the first Billboard 200 chart topper by an all-female group since 2008.
The record earned 102,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending September 22, according to Luminate.
Out of the total equivalent album units, album sales comprise 75,500; SEA units comprise 25,000 and TEA units comprise 1,500 in the chart dated October 1.
BLACKPINK’s The Album, which reached No. 2 in October 2020, had been the South Korean quartet’s best performance.
Two other albums by South Korean bands also topped the Billboard 200 chart this year: BTS‘ Proof and Stray Kids‘ Stray Kids Mini Album: Oddinary.
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, compiled by Luminate.
Bad Bunny‘s Un Verano Sin Ti and NCT 127‘s 2 Baddies follow BORN PINK in the chart’s top three spots.
BLACKPINK is set to embark on a world tour in October.
