BRONPINK debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart

Luminate reports that Born Pink, BLACKPINK’s second full-length studio album, debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart after selling 102,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. during the week ending September 22. The eight-song collection is an all-female group’s first Billboard 200 No. 1 since 2008.

The South Korean quartet’s full-length debut, The Album, debuted and peaked at No. 2 in October 2020, giving rise to Born Pink, which debuted at No. 10. Born Pink follows BTS’ Proof and Stray Kids’ Stray Kids Mini Album Ordinary as the third album by a South Korean act to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 2022.  Born Pink is primarily in English, with some Korean lyrics, as opposed the other two albums, which are primarily in Korean.

The Billboard 200 chart lists the top albums of the week in the United States based on Luminate’s compilation of multi-metric consumption measured in equivalent album units. Track equivalent albums (TEA), album sales, and streaming equivalent albums are all included in units (SEA). Each unit represents one album sale, 10 single track sales from an album 3,750 free or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand streaming of official audio and video content produced by songs from an album.

On September 27, Billboard will publish the entire new chart with an Oct. 1, 2022, expiration date online.

Since Danity Kane’s second album, Welcome to the Dollhouse, debuted at No. 1 on the chart dated April 5, 2008, Born Pink is the first Billboard 200 No. 1 by a female trio.

As its normal digipack and box set editions initially cost $26 and $50, respectively, in the group’s online store, opulent collectable CD packages like Born Pink’s are often pricey. “Pink Venom” is a big hit outside of the United States; it spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. chart and two weeks at the top of the Billboard Global 200. Based on streaming and sales activity collected from more than 200 areas worldwide, the two charts list the top songs of the week around the world.

The Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart includes data from nations other than the U.S., whereas the Global 200 includes data from all countries.
