BTS has done it again. The K-pop group’s latest album, “Love Yourself: Answer,” scored No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart on Sunday, marking the second that the wildly popular boy group reached that high on the Billboard chart.

Citing Nielsen Music, Billboard said the last of the group's "Love Yourself" trilogy sold 185,000 album-equivalent units in the week ending last Thursday. The metric combines sales of physical albums with those of track downloads and song streams.

"BTS is the only K-pop act with a No. 1 album and obviously the first with two leaders,” Billboard said on its website. “They were also the first with a top 10 set, when Love Yourself: Her — the first of the Love Yourself trilogy — debuted and peaked at No. 7.”

The weekly performance is the third best for a pop album on the Billboard chart so far this year after Justin Timberlake's "Man of the Woods" and Ariana Grande's "Sweetener," which each recorded weekly sales of 293,000 and 231,000.
