On March 1 local time, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI)—a non-profit organization that represents the music recording industry worldwide—revealed its annual rankings of last year’s best-selling albums across global physical sales and digital downloads.
SEVENTEEN achieved the impressive feat of landing two albums in the top 10 for 2021: their ninth mini album “Attacca” charted at No. 3, bested only by Adele’s “30” and ABBA’s “Voyage,” while their eighth mini album “Your Choice” followed at No. 8.
Meanwhile, BTS’s Japanese compilation album “BTS, THE BEST” ranked No. 4 for 2021.
Here is the top 10 ?
