The global superstars have again broken a record while pursuing solo endeavors. The South Korean singer BTS V became the first artist to reach double million-seller status on the Hanteo chart in the first week of the release of his romantic solo debut album Layover. Let’s explore the achievement through the reactions of their fandom, ARMY.

BTS V becomes the first artist to attain ‘double million seller’ in one week

As per the domestic album sales aggregation site Hanteo Charts, BTS V became the first artist to receive double million-seller status on September 15, 2023, with humongous sales. His bariton-laced romantic solo debut album Layover sold a total of 2,101,974 copies by September 14.

  • With this historical achievement, BTS V not only holds the record of being the first solo artist to attain over two million sales within one week of his album release but also the record as a member of the ‘double million seller’ group BTS.
  • The new-attained status adds to the exciting achievements of the South Korean boy group that is breaking records day and night while pursuing their solo projects. To understand the weight of this achievement, one must know that until now, only five artists have surpassed one million sales in the first week.

  • The top three spots on that list are also named under the ‘Take Two’ singers: BTS V for Layover, Jimin for FACE (1,454,223 copies), and SUGA for D-DAY (1,277,218 copies). Additionally, all of the three artists have attained this status within a day of their album release, proving their invincible popularity.
