MONSTA X debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 album chart with its first English album All About Luv released in the U.S.
On February 23, Billboard wrote in an article previewing its latest chart to be released on this coming Friday that All About Love won 52,000 points in Nielsen Music, ranking No.5 on Billboard 200.
Of the scores, 50,000 points were obtained by traditional record sales, which refer to offline album sales. Billboard combines TEA(track equivalent albums), which translates the number of downloads of digital songs into record sales and SEA(streaming equivalent albums), which translates the number of streaming into record sales, to the traditional record sales to create the Billboard 20 chart.
This is the first time that MONSTA X has entered the Billboard 200. Previously, BTS has topped the chart three times and SuperM, combined group of SM Entertainment, also topped the chart once.
MONSTA X joined hands with Sony Music Entertainment’s label, Epic Record last year.
