BTS’ new album Wings is flying high above all previous K-pop records on the Billboard 200.

The Korean boy band’s second full-length album debuts at No. 26 on the Billboard 200 chart with 16,000 units earned in the week ending Oct. 13, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 11,000 were in traditional album sales.

Those figures mark the best week ever for a K-pop album. Previously, 2NE1′s Crush held the highest chart rank for a K-pop act (No. 61 with the 2014 album Crush) and EXO logged the best sales frame (6,000 sold in the first week for 2015′s Exodus).…-billboard-200
