K-Pop Chart Showdown: BTS Outsells PSY in U.S. Album Sales

FUSE TV - K-Pop Chart Showdown: BTS Outsells PSY in U.S. Album Sales

PSY may be the K-pop star most familiar to Americans, but a new boy band is quickly rising stateside, and may have just proven themselves to have a larger support system than the king of YouTube.

BTS is the seven-member act that, in less than three years, has broken out in their native South Korea and in America, with two sold-out tours in 2015. The boy band's latest album, The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Pt. 2, was released on November 30 and this week debuts on the Billboard 200 albums chart at No. 171 with 5,000 copies sold this week.

A day later on December 1, PSY also released a new album—his first full-length since breaking out with "Gangnam Style"—which failed to make the Billboard 200.
