Forbes reported that the group that consists of RM, Jungkook, V, Jimin, Jin, J-Hope and Suga’s latest album has moved up on the charts. The advancing made the “MOTS7” album as the third longest charting Korean album In the history of U.K. music.

“Future Nostalgia,” Dua Lipa’s second studio album also went back up the charts and stayed at the top since she has no competitor at this time. Plus, musicians are not launching any album due to the global COVID-19 pandemic so nobody has taken her place yet.
