BTS also became first act to top Global Album All Format chart with the record breaking 2020 album 'Map Of The Soul: 7'. Frances Moore, Chief Executive at IFPI, said in a statement on IFPI site, “We have introduced the Global Album All Format Chart to reflect the evolving landscape of the album format and to recognise how artists share their album projects in a variety of ways with their fans across multiple formats.

“It’s an honour to be able to hand BTS their second IFPI Global Chart Award, following their success as Global Recording Artists of the Year. 'Map Of The Soul: 7' broke chart records internationally and in Korea, and is yet another incredible body of work from a band that continues to delight music lovers globally."

To say 2020 was a big year for BTS when it comes to achievements would be an understatement. Though it is known that there's hardly physical albums consumptions in music market but when it comes to BTS, their album sales have always been meteoric.

Just a few days ago, BTS was named IFPI's Recording Artist Of the Year. This marked their first-ever top score IPFI win after securing second place in 2018’s IFPI Global Artist Chart and seventh place in 2019.

BTS' 'Map of the Soul: 7' and 'BE' were ranked No. 1 and No. 2 best-selling albums on Gaon in 2020. The album 'Map of the Soul: 7' also holds the title of the best-selling album in South Korea, as per Guinness World Records.
