K-Pop Artists Claim 34 Out Of 100 Spots On Oricon’s 2021 Year

Oricon has revealed its year-end rankings for 2021, and K-pop artists claimed over a third of the spots on the Japanese year-end album chart!
Every year, Oricon—Japan’s largest music statistics site—wraps up the year by publishing its annual rankings of the best-selling albums and singles. For this year’s charts, Oricon compiled sales data within Japan from December 28, 2020 to December 20, 2021.
BTS topped the 2021 album rankings with their Japanese compilation album “BTS, THE BEST,” making them the first foreign group in history to top Oricon’s year-end album chart—and the first foreign artist to achieve the feat since Michael Jackson 37 years ago. “BTS, THE BEST” included, the group landed an impressive total of 10 different albums on the year-end album chart.
