According to Billboard on the 8th, TXT’s second full album, The Chaos Chapter: FREEZE, ranked at No. 26 on Billboard 200. This is the 11th week that the act was ranked on the chart.

The Chaos Chapter: FREEZE originally debuted at No. 5 on the chart three months ago and stayed on it for nine consecutive weeks. For the week ending on September 11th, the smash landed at No. 26, extending the record as the longest-charting K-pop album of the year.
