The upcoming chart dated March 7 will be fully posted on the Billboard website on Sunday (US time), the pop magazine said. “Remarkably, Map of the Soul: 7 is selling strongly without the aid of a concert ticket/album sale redemption offer, nor any merchandise/album bundles, as has become the norm for many major releases,” Billboard said. “Map of the Soul: 7 is trending well in sales thanks in large part to the availability of four elaborate collectible CD packages,” it said.

The mainstream British music tally, Official Charts, also said on Feb.24th (British time) that “Map of the Soul: 7” is set to take the No. 1 spot on its album chart. “The K-pop band’s seventh studio album tops the UK’s midweek Official Albums Chart Update, outselling its three nearest competitors combined. Map of the Soul: 7 is the best-selling album of the week so far on CD and download formats,” Official Charts said on its website. (Yonhap)
