New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Congratulations to BTS, who debut at Number 1 on this week's UK Albums Chart with Map of The Soul: Persona. The seven-member group's latest collection lands straight in at the top with 26,500 combined sales. 68% of the EP's Week 1 figure is from physical sales. They are the first Korean act to score a chart-topping album in the UK.

Map of The Soul:Persona is BTS's fourth collection to chart in the UK Top 40, following their three part Love Yourself album series. Their latest EP precedes their Love Yourself: Speak Yourself world tour, which kicks off on May 4 and reaches the UK on June 1 for two shows at London's Wembley Stadium.
