Travis Scott and SuperM top Billboard Hot 100 and 200



- Travis Scott's Highest In The Room breaks the 6-weeks #1 streak of Lizzo's Truth Hurts
- K-Pop group SuperM debuts at #1 on Billboard Hot 200, breaking the record of the first Kpop group to have their debut album reaching #1 on Billboard
- Controversy arose when prominent media (NYTimes, Rolling Stone) revealed that 60% of SuperM's sales (164,000) came from bundle sales and that SuperM's labels (SM Entertainment and Capitol Records) offered more than 60 bundle sales merchandise including concert tickets and merchandise as well as 8 versions of their debut album (7 versions with each member individually on it and a group version)
- Meanwhile, the #2 artist Summer Walker accumulated 134,000 sales (with 14,000 of them being pure and 155 millions streams) while SuperM had 133,000 pure sales and 51,000 digital downloads (as well as 4 millions streams)
- Talks about removing bundle sales from Billboard sales count are yet again revived
