“Blaming us or our fans for successfully sitting in 1st place thanks to physical purchases anddownload , I think that’s not true. I feel like we’re good targets because we’re a boy band , a K-pop group, and we have very loyal fans,” said the BTS leader .
Before using the current rules, Billboard never had a problem with Western musicians selling their albums together. fashion products , concert tickets, even with condoms, in order to produce high physical album sales figures
