BTS keeps on with its chart-slaying streak as it has stayed on Billboard magazine’s Hot 100 chart and Billboard 200 chart for three consecutive weeks.

On the week of Oct. 21, the band’s latest album “Love Yourself Seung Her” secured the No. 35 spot on the “Billboard 200” chart while its lead track “DNA” remained on the No. 87 spot on “The Hot 100” chart.

It is the first time a Korean artist has stayed on the American music publication’s two main charts for three weeks.

“It is proof that US fans are consistently listening to the music by BTS that a Korean-language album is remaining on Billboard’s two main charts for three-straight weeks. It shows BTS’ status in the world,” Big Hit Entertainment said Wednesday.

In addition to the milestone, the band once again topped the World Album chart and Social 50 chart for the given week.

BTS will wrap up its promotional activities for “Love Yourself Seung Her” with its own music show “BTS Countdown” set to air on Mnet on Thursday at 6 p.m.
