AceShowbiz - BTS (Bangtan Boys) reach a new milestone with their new album "Proof". The South-Korean boy band score their sixth No. 1 album on Billboard 200 albums chart after the set earned 314,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending June 16, according to Luminate.
Of the number, SEA units comprise 36,000, equating to 52.84 million on-demand official streams of the set. Album sales, meanwhile, comprise 266,000 with TEA units being 12,000 units.
"Proof" has a 35-track digital download and streaming album, and an expanded 48-track album on CD. The latter edition has 13 exclusive tracks, mostly demo recordings, not available on the digital or streaming album. "Proof" was not issued on any other format, such as vinyl LP or cassette.
"Proof" was released on June 10, four days before the group announced an indefinite "hiatus" to focus on solo ventures. The seven-member South Korean act was formed in 2010 and made its U.S. Billboard chart debut in 2013. The group has tallied 15 entries on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
Back to this week's chart, Bad Bunny's former leader "Un Verano Sin Ti" falls one rank to No. 2 with 129,000 equivalent album units. "Un Verano Sin Ti" is the first album in nearly four years to exceed 100,000 equivalent album units earned in each of its first six weeks. The last title to do so was Drake's "Scorpion", which saw its first seven weeks all exceeding 100,000 units in 2018.
Meanwhile, Harry Styles' former chart-topping "Harry's House" is a non-mover at No. 3 with 91,000 equivalent album units. The set falls to the spot in its third week after spending its first two weeks leading the chart.
Following "Harry's House" up is Post Malone's "Twelve Carat Toothache" which falls from No. 2 in its second week with 59,000 equivalent album units. Rounding out the top five is Future's former No. 1 "I Never Liked You", with 55,000 units.
A trio of former leaders are next on the chart, as Morgan Wallen's "Dangerous: The Double Album" is stationary at No. 6 with 52,000 equivalent album units, Kendrick Lamar's "Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers" descends from No. 5 to No. 7 with 42,000 units and Olivia Rodrigo's "Sour" is steady at No. 8 with 32,000 units.
SZA's "Ctrl" vaults from No. 35 to No. 9 following a fifth anniversary deluxe reissue on June 10 which added seven previously unreleased tracks. The album, which debuted and peaked at No. 3 on the July 1, 2017-dated chart, rallies with 32,000 equivalent album units earned.
Closing out the Billboard 200 Top 10 is Carrie Underwood's new studio album "Denim & Rhinestones", which debuts at No. 10 with 31,000 equivalent album units earned. Of that sum, album sales comprise 22,000, SEA units comprise nearly 9,000, which is equaling 11.19 million on-demand official streams of the set's tracks, and TEA units comprise less than 1,000.
