U.K. CHARTS: BTS' LUCKY NUMBER
2/28/20

BTS have claimed the fastest-selling album in the U.K. of 2020 as Map of the Soul: 7 (Big Hit) hits the top of the Official Albums Chart on 38k combined sales. Over on singles, The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” (Island) is back on top.

Map of the Soul: 7 is the second #1 for BTS in Blighty following Map of the Soul: Persona last year. They overtake Eminem’s Music to Be Murdered By (Polydor), which previously had the year’s biggest debut week with just over 36k sales. More than 32k of BTS’ opening figure came from physical and downloads.

Ozzy Osbourne has his highest-charting album as a solo artist with Ordinary Man (Sony) at #3, beating the #7 peak he reached in 1980 with his solo debut, Blizzard of Oz.
