BTS' V's "Layover" is only the 2nd Korean solo album to spend 7 weeks on the Billboard 200, the first being his bandmate RM's solo album, "Indigo."
BTS's V has achieved historic success on the Billboard 200 chart with his album "Layover." When Kim Taehyung made his solo debut in September, his album impressively entered Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart at No. 2, equalling the record set by fellow BTS members Jimin and Suga for the highest position ever attained by a Korean solo album.
V has now further solidified his solo career by becoming the first K-pop solo artist to maintain a seven-week consecutive presence on the Billboard 200 chart. Since its debut, "Layover" has consistently maintained its position on the chart, never once dropping off. In the week ending November 4, the album continued to chart, holding the No. 160 spot on the Billboard 200.
It is noteworthy that "Layover" is only the second Korean solo album to spend seven weeks on the Billboard 200, the first being V's bandmate RM's solo album, "Indigo." However, V's achievement is distinctive as his seven weeks were in a consecutive sequence.
Outside the Billboard 200, "Layover" re-entered the No. 13 spot on Billboard's Top Current Album Sales chart and claimed the No. 18 position on the Top Album Sales chart in its seventh week on both charts.
V's title track, "Slow Dancing," reached No. 30 in its seventh week on Billboard's Global Excl. U.S. chart and secured the No. 54 position on the Global 200 chart. His pre-release single, "Love Me Again," also saw a resurgence, rising to No. 116 in its 11th week on the Global Excl. U.S. chart.
Additionally, V made his mark on Billboard's Artist 100 chart, holding the No. 83 position, signifying his ninth non-consecutive week on the chart as a solo artist.
