BTS released its new studio album “Love Yourself: Answer” Friday morning.
The LP predictably rocketed to #1 on the US iTunes album sales chart. The album’s tracks, meanwhile, blasted to the upper reaches of the song sales chart.
BTS currently holds twelve of the Top 13 songs on the listing (KUN’s #4 “Wait Wait Wait”) is the only exception.
That list of twelve includes two versions of “IDOL.” The BTS-only version is #1 on the store, while a remix featuring Nicki Minaj is #5.
The Nicki Minaj version has been issued to mainstream radio, where it is expected to serve as the group’s next official single. It will be the follow-up to “Fake Love,” which charted at the pop format earlier this summer.
