In the epitome of an unsurprising development, the new BTS release “Map Of The Soul: Persona” received a warm welcome from US iTunes users.

As of press time at 8:10AM ET, the album is a dominant #1 on the all-genre US iTunes album sales chart. It leapfrogged Aaron Lewis’ “State I’m In” to claim that pinnacle position shortly after its morning release.

The album’s individual tracks are concurrently faring well on the all-genre song sales chart. Official single “Boy With Luv (featuring Halsey)” just hit #1 on the listing, seizing the throne from Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road (featuring Billy Ray Cyrus).”

The other six tracks are positioned from #3 to #8:

3) Make It Right
4) Home
5) Mikrokosmos
6) Intro: Persona
7) Dinoysus
8) Jamais vu
