Not only is this the first album by a South Korean act to hit this milestone since BoA’s ‘Best of Soul’ in 2005, but it’s also the first time since Queen’s in 2004 that a single album by a foreign male artist has sold more than 1 million copies on the Oricon chart.

BTS became the 14th foreign artist to sell one million albums in the United States with this achievement. The quintet joins Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi, Scatman John, The Beatles, and Queen as the only foreign male musicians to do so.
