The South Korean pop group Stray Kids topped six Billboard charts last week, including the Billboard 200 album chart and the Artist 100 ranking.

These historic results for the group come four years after its debut.

On March 29, Billboard published the week’s charts on its official website. Stray Kids came in first place on six of them thanks to its latest EP “Oddinary” and its lead single “Maniac.”

In addition to the Billboard 200 and Artist 100, Stray Kids also stood at the summit of the Top Album Sales, Top Current Album Sales, World Albums, and World Digital Song Sales charts.

On March 28, Billboard shared on its social media that Stray Kids reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 with its mini-album “Oddinary,” which the group released on March 18. The album is the first this year to place at the top of the Billboard 200 and Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart simultaneously.

Other than topping six of Billboard’s charts, Stray Kids also placed No. 19 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart, which ranks 25 songs on the verge of making it to Billboard’s main chart, the Hot 100.

Additionally, the group placed on 12 other Billboard charts, coming in at No. 2 on the Tastemaker Albums chart, No. 21 on the Billboard Global 200, No. 15 on the Billboard Global Excl. US chart, No. 2 on the Hot Trending Song Powered by Twitter chart, No. 20 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart, and No. 70 on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 chart.

“Oddinary” sold over 103,000 copies in a single week in the US, setting the record for the best-selling album released this year and topping multiple Billboard charts. The group is the third K-pop act to reach the top of the Billboard 200 after BTS and SuperM.
