International mega stars recently topped the first released Global Album All Format Chart. It was the BTS album entitled «Map Of The Soul: 7» that was in first place in the world.
The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) opened a new category on March 10, 2021. This category should include a ranking of the most popular and best-selling music albums in the world. All consumption formats are taken into account: sales on digital and other media, downloads on the Internet, the number of listenings on music streaming services.
This rating category is introduced by IFPI to understand the changing musical world landscape and the global chart of all music albums released in the world over a certain period of time. There is also an opportunity to understand the most successful formats of how artists share music with fans.
In addition to the first place in the ranking, one of the albums of the South Korean group took fourth place in it. Boyband bypassed singers such as The Weeknd, Billie Eilish and Harry Styles in all respects.
«Map Of The Soul: 7» became the fourth studio album of the popular South Korean group. It became the first sales number in the largest music markets in the world: in the United States of America, Japan, Great Britain, Germany and France. On the iTunes chart, it is in first place in almost a hundred countries.
According to IFPI Executive Director Francis Moore, BTS rightfully won the right to carry the title of the main world musical sensation.
