SEVENTEEN has scored their highest-ever entry on the Billboard 200 with “FML“!
On May 8 local time, Billboard announced the top 10 entries on this week’s Top 200 Album chart, its weekly ranking of the most popular albums in the United States.
Debuting at No. 2 was SEVENTEEN’s new 10th mini album “FML,” which marks the group’s highest ranking yet on the Billboard 200, as well as their third consecutive top 10 entry.
The group scored their first top 10 debut on the Billboard 200 last June with “Face the Sun” at No. 7, and followed up a month later with “SECTOR 17” debuting at No. 4. “FML” is now SEVENTEEN’s fifth overall entry on this chart, including their 2021 mini albums “Your Choice” and “Attacca” (which peaked at No. 15 and No. 13 respectively).
“FML” was also the top-selling album of the week with 135,000 equivalent album units earned. According to Luminate (formerly MRC Data), album sales made up 132,000, marking the fourth-largest sales week of 2023, and streaming equivalent album (SEA) units made up 3,000, which is equal to 4.36 million on-demand audio streams over the course of the week.
SEVENTEEN’s “FML” album was released in 14 total CD packages, with exclusives for Barnes & Nobles, Target, and Weverse. Digitally, “FML” was available as a standard digital download album or 17 different digital download variants. Each of these variants had different album art, with four albums containing different sets of two bonus tracks, while the remaining 13 had different album covers for each member. In the first week of sales for “FML,” 98 percent were physical albums with only 2 percent being digital album downloads.
Last month, SEVENTEEN broke multiple records as “FML” became the best-selling album in K-pop history after selling over 4 million copies in its first day of release, and 4.5 million copies total in just one week. On May 8, SEVENTEEN released the music video for “F*ck My Life,” the second of their two “FML” title tracks.
Congratulations to SEVENTEEN!
