K-pop group BTS’ album “Love Yourself: Her” has landed on Billboard magazine’s main album chart for the fifth straight week, according to the U.S. music publication Wednesday.

“Love Yourself: Her” clocked in at 86th on the Billboard 200 chart for the week of Nov. 4, according to the company’s website.

The record first appeared on the chart at seventh place late last month.

The album’s lead song “DNA,” however, fell off the Hot 100 chart, which measures the popularity of individual songs.

BTS is the second K-pop act to have a Korean-language song on the Hot 100, following rapper-singer Psy, whose smash hit “Gangnam Style” peaked at No. 2 for seven weeks in 2012. Girl group Wonder Girls and former 2NE1 member CL have charted one and two Hot 100 entries, respectively, but with songs predominantly in English.

“Love Yourself: Her” has sold over 1.2 million copies to date, becoming the biggest-selling Korean music record in 16 years. The group plans to hold a concert in Macau on Nov. 4.
