Group BTS placed 1st in Hanteo Chart's Monthly Global Authentication Chart of March.
On April 1st, Hanteo Chart, the world’s one-and-only real-time music chart, announced the Monthly Global Authentication Chart of March 2020 based on the genuine album purchase authentication data from K-Pop fans overseas during the past month. As a result, BTS's 4th Studio Album 'MAP OF THE SOUL : 7' (title track 'ON') earned the glory of the 1st place in the Monthly Global Authentication Chart of March of 2020.
Hanteo Chart’s Global Authentication Chart is a new concept chart built by the K-Pop fans overseas directly authenticate their purchase of the artists’ genuine albums. As it is based on ‘the fans’ active participation,’ the result of the chart has a greater meaning to the artist and the fans alike. It represents the size of the 'global core fans' who are actively participating.
According to Hanteo Chart, the fans in Hong Kong have recorded the most authentications of the genuine album purchase of BTS's 'MAP OF THE SOUL : 7' album in the last month. The numbers of authentication of genuine albums were followed by the fans in Malaysia, Taiwan, Russia, Ukraine, Thailand, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, and Chile.
Also, BTS's 'MAP OF THE SOUL : 7' album recorded the Initial Chodong (first week of release) sales of more than 3.37 million copies and achieved the best Initial Chodong record in K-Pop history. The album also topped Hanteo Chart's Monthly Physical Album Chart of February as well as the Weekly Physical Album Charts of the 1st and 2nd weeks of March.
It is garnering attention what kind of result that 'MAP OF THE SOUL : 7' album, the meaningful album that BTS's seven members celebrating the 7th year anniversary of their debut, would continue to achieve after placing the 1st in the Global Authentication Chart even after the month of its release.
