BTS's Love Yourself: Answer — the group's third project in 2018 — landed atop the Billboard 200 this week, Billboard reports.


The album sold 185,000 equivalent album units, which was enough to dethrone Ariana Grande's Sweetener for the top spot. Love Yourself: Answer is BTS's second number one this year — following the band's Love Yourself: Tear which debuted atop the Billboard 200 back in June.

BTS remain as the only K-pop group with a number one album on the charts. The album's sales figures also mark BTS's highest first week total ever, as well as the highest first week total for any K-pop act.
