J-Hope’s ‘Hope World’ Keeps Climbing the Charts
This week, the Korean rapper is climbing the charts. After selling another 12,000 units, he's sitting pretty at No. 38 on the BIllboard 200, breaking into America's Top 40 for the first time. With the new chart placement, Hope World has only been out charted by two K-Pop entries, both unsurprisingly by his band: BTS' 2017's Love Yourself: Her (which hit No. 7 last year) and 2016's Wings (No. 26).
As if that news wasn't cool enough, the increase scored J-Hope a spot on the Rap Album Sales chart too, debuting at No. 19. Only two other Korean acts have landed on this chart: G-Dragon in 2013 and MOBB in 2016.
The album's first single, "Daydreaming," had its own bump to No. 1 on the World Digital Song Sales chart, giving J-Hope his first solo chart topper.
We can't wait to see how high the K-Pop star soars on next week's charts.
