1. 5×20 All of the BEST!! 1999-2019 – ARASHI
2. Lover – Taylor Swift
3. Map of the Soul: PERSONA – BTS
4. A Star Is Born – Girl Gaga
5. Once we all go to sleep, the place can we go? – Billie Eilish
6. Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen
7. No.6 Collabs – Ed Sheeran
8. Thank U, Subsequent – Ariana Grande

Apparently, BTS may’ve been first on all the checklist however since ‘MAP OF THE SOUL: PERSONA’ was an EP as a substitute of an LP, they counted every album sale as 0.5 (half). So the three.7 million album gross sales listed by Hanteo can be counted as 1.85 million album gross sales.
For individuals questioning @IFPI_org determine of two.5 million gross sales for @BTS_twt‘s Map of the Soul: Persona, it seems its gross sales are weighted with a 0.5 issue due to its EP standing, with Chinese language downloads added in full. We’re pending suggestions after having contacted them.— ChartMasters.org (@chartmastersorg) March 19, 2020
Regardless, congratulations to BTS!
