J-Hope of K-pop superband BTS made a good start high on the US
Billboard's main albums chart for this week.
The rapper-dancer placed 17th on the Billboard 200 with his first formal
solo album, "Jack in the Box," Billboard said on a social media Tuesday.
"Arson," one of the two main singles off the album, landed at 96th on the
Hot 100 main singles chart. "Jack in the Box," featuring 10 songs, is also
the first-ever official solo album from BTS, which recently announced a
new chapter of its career with a focus on individual projects. The album
topped iTunes' top albums charts in 49 countries around the world,
including the United States, Britain, France and Japan, upon its release
on July 15. [TheKoreaHerald]
