BTS has become the first Korean artist to be on the list of the best-selling albums worldwide from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) for two consecutive years. 

On March 19, IFPI released its ‘Global Album Charts 2019,’ where BTS’s “Map of the Soul: Persona” was placed 3rd. 

Last year, BTS ranked at No. 2 and No. 3 on the IFPI’s Global Album Chart with “Love Yourself: Answer” and “Love Yourself: Tear,” respectively.

“Not only is it the best-selling album ever in South Korea, but it also reached number one in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, UK and the US, marking the first time a Korean act has topped the charts in each of those countries,” the IFPI said in a statement. 

Meanwhile, the IFPI Global Top Ten Album Chart combines global sales of physical and digital album downloads to rank the top albums of the year.
