BTS’s Suga Hits No. 1 On Three Billboard Charts This Week

Throughout his years in the music industry, Suga, one of the seven members of the band BTS, has enjoyed more success than most artists can only dream of. He’s landed hits on his own, under a different name, with a group and now as a featured act on a song pushed by another star. His latest win brings him to the top of not one, not two, but three different Billboard charts this week, and each one is special to him.

Alongside Juice WRLD on the late musician’s “Girl of My Dreams” promotional single, here’s a look at Suga’s trio of No. 1s this week.

Digital Song Sales

Of the three Billboard rankings Suga rules over this week, perhaps most important is the Digital Song Sales chart. The tally lists the tunes that actually sold the most copies in the U.S. every frame, looking solely at purchases. As a member of BTS, the singer and rapper has reached the summit with nine different tracks, but before now, he had never made it to the peak position without his bandmates. “Girl of My Dreams” becomes Suga’s first solo No. 1 on the all-genre sales list.

He is also just the third K-pop artist to hit No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart, joining Psy and BTS (of course) in this showing. He previously stalled in the runner-up rung with his own “Daechwita,” which was released under his nickname Agust D.

R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales

Since “Girl of My Dreams” ranks as the bestselling track of any kind in America, it makes sense that it also debuts at No. 1 on two different Billboard rankings that also look exclusively at purchases, though ones that are more specific when it comes to style. The cut arrives in first place on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart, and the smash is historic for Suga. The BTS singer and rapper is now the first K-pop musician to top the tally.

Rap Digital Song Sales

The most specific of the three rankings mentioned here, the Rap Digital Song Sales chart only looks at those tunes that are classified as rap, which Billboard claims also fit under the list just above. “Girl of My Dream” easily opens at No. 1 on the rap-focused roster, and amazingly, this placement isn’t a first for Suga. He previously reached the penthouse with his Agust D project, as the single “Daechwita” ruled for a short time. He has now conquered the chart under two different names, and he’s the first K-pop artist to score more than one No. 1.
