Daniel Kim Views  

BTS’s RM has set another record on the U.S. Billboard charts.

According to U.S. Billboard’s chart preview article on June 3, RM’s second solo album Right Place, Wrong Person released on May 24 ranked #5 on the main Billboard 200 chart for the week of June 8.

RM’s new album recorded sales of 43,000 copies, 7,500 SEA units (streaming equivalent album), and 3,500 TEA units (track equivalent albums). Through these metrics, RM has entered the Billboard 200 for the third time based on individual works, following his 2018 mixtape mono. at #26 and 2022’s Indigo at #15. Notably, Indigo recorded the highest performance on this chart at #3, and with Right Place, Wrong Person climbing to #5, RM has achieved the feat of being the first K-pop solo artist to place two works consecutively in the Billboard 200 Top 5. Right Place, Wrong Person, deals with moments when one feels like a stranger in an unsuitable place and includes 11 songs, including the title track “LOST!” The new album has received rave reviews from multiple media outlets, being described by NME as a “beautiful and interesting artistic work,” and by Hypebeast

as a “charming musical journey proven by the leader of BTS,” thus building a reputation for RM’s expanded musical world as a solo artist.
