BTS' Entire Discography Re-enters iTunes Charts Worldwide
Army is scary powerful and was able to chart BTS' entire discography around the world in a day.
It started after the People’s Choice Awards on November 10th. BTS were nominated in three fan-voted categories: Group of 2019, Music Video of 2019, Concert of 2019.
The fandom (Army) is known for being organized and strong when it comes to fan-voted awards and keep a close eye on their competition. Many fan-bases Twitter accounts post the info updating the group's position in the ranks and Army encourages voting to help the group win.
Once the voting period was up, the numbers were posted and everyone knew BTS had won.

After the award show had aired, they revealed the winner of those catagories was BlackPink and not BTS. The fans wouldn't have been so upset if the data wasn't so obvious. But the best part of ARMY's anger is that they put all of their focus into streaming and purchasing BTS' music the next day, November 11th. But not just in the U.S where the award show was held, they mustered this dedication all around the world. It wasn't a collective decision either. Many focused on BTS' most recent album, Map Of The Soul: Persona, and the seven month old album rose to number two on U.S iTunes charts moving it up 654 spots. IBTS also ranked number one on the iTunes Worldwide Chart and Global Digital Chart. Then, the global fandom began charting various songs in different countries creating an unprecedented feat.
In total, the fans re-charted 20 BTS albums which includes their entire Korean discography with 13 albums in less than 24 hours. Among those 20, is all three rappers solo mixtapes MONO, HopeWorld, and AgustD plus two Japanese repackaged albums. Even BTS' first release named "2 Cool 4 Skool" from 2013 charted on iTunes. It seemed every minute, another BTS song was hitting number one somewhere in the world while Map Of The Soul: Persona gained the number one album in 47 countries.
ARMY started streaming and purchasing "parties" to support the songs' spontaneous reappearance on the sales charts. Simultaneously, they trended the hashtag "BuyPersonaOniTunes" for the day too. The last time this occurred was April 12th, 2019 when Map Of The Soul: Persona released. The love for the group is definitely evident.
