Korean male group, BTS, retained its no. 1 spot on Oricon’s weekly album ranking for the third time, according to the chart’s tally released on Tuesday.

The male group’s best-of album “BTS, The Best” sold 27,000 units last week alone, extending its dominance of the chart for another week. 

It has already sold 782,000 copies during the first week of its release and secured a top spot of the chart while also recording best album sales in Japan in the first week of 2021. 

It is the first to remain on top of the chart for three consecutive weeks this year. 

“BTS, The Best” has 23 tracks that covers all songs the band released in Japan, including “Dynamite,” which became a mega hit song in August 2020. Ronald Espartinez
