What BTS Just Achieved that Hasn't Happened in Over 50 Years

K-pop supergroup BTS’ latest album Map of the Soul: Persona just debuted at No. 1 in the states, which is not only a major accomplishment for a Korean boyband, it puts them in rare company for any group regardless of where they're from.

According to Billboard, they have now had three different albums reach No. 1 in less than eleven months Love Yourself: Tear last June, followed by Love Yourself: Answer in September and now Map of the Soul: Persona.

To find a group who achieved that at a faster pace yo would have to go all the way back to 1967, when The Monkees did it in under ten months.

BTS’ latest "Boy With Luv" alongside Halsey is out now.
