SUGA on Billboard charts

After multiple allegations from fans of the septet of having changed their rules in urgency, making member Jimin’s ‘Like Crazy’ fall off the Hot100 chart from its No.1 position, SUGA debuted his own track on it. ‘Haegeum’ was spotted at No.58 on the songs list.

SUGA’s ‘D-DAY’ grabbed the 2nd place on the Billboard 200 chart, successfully tying to Jimin’s ‘FACE’ which grabbed the same spot a few weeks ago. ‘D-DAY’ was crowned as the best-selling album of the week, according to Billboard, by managing to sell off 122,000 in pure sales and a total of 140,000 equivalent units, alongside 12,500 streaming equivalents. Previously, leader RM had debuted at the No.3 position with his own solo release ‘Indigo’. Fans have noted that this is neither the BTS rapper’s first visit to the charts nor will it be the last, celebrating the impressive numbers.
