K-pop girl group Twice tops Billboard 200 chart for first time

NEW YORK – Nine-woman K-pop group Twice lead the Billboard album chart for the first time with their latest album, thanks to collectible CD and vinyl sales, reported the music publication on March 3.

Twice’s With You-th, a six-song EP, opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, with the equivalent of 95,000 sales in the United States in the week ending February 29.

The vast majority of its consumption – 90,000 copies – was through purchases of physical copies, which included 14 collectible variations on CD and three vinyl LP versions, according to tracking service Luminate.

Released on February 23, With You-th also garnered 6.3 million streams, the lowest streaming total for a No. 1 album in almost five years since Celine Dion’s Courage opened with 3.9 million in 2019 – a period when sales “bundles” helped albums top the charts by including the music with purchases of concert tickets or merchandise.

American country music singer-songwriter Morgan Wallen’s One Thing At A Time rose one spot to No. 2 in its 52nd week on the chart, with the equivalent of 67,000 sales.

Since its release in 2023, Wallen’s album has remained remarkably popular, holding at No. 1 for a total of 18 weeks and never dipping below No. 6 on the all-genre album chart – and even then, only hitting that low point two times.

Week after week, One Thing At A Time has been a streaming champion, logging a total of 8.3 billion streams since it came out.

Even after a full year, each of the album’s 36 tracks is clicked an average of more than 2 million times a week on streaming services. In comparison, the six songs on the brand-new Twice album had an average of a little over 1 million streams apiece.

Vultures 1, by Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) and Ty Dolla Sign fell to No. 3 after two weeks at the top, while Noah Kahan’s Stick Season (2022) was No. 4 and SZA’s SOS (2022) came in fifth place. NYTIMES
