On March 29, the million-selling group, Stray Kids finally made their very first sensational debut at #1 on Billboard 200 chart this week with their “ODDINARY” mini-album.
Billboard 200 is a dedicated ranking chart compiled by Luminate (formerly P-MRC Data). It ranks the most popular albums of the week in using US-based multi-metric consumption. And the company did it by measuring by the equivalent of album units.
Stray Kids has made their very first debut by beating other best-selling albums from other prominent artists and titles, including Encanto, Juice WRLD, and Lil Durk. With this debut, Stray Kids becomes the THIRD Korean artist to ever make this accomplishment after BTS and SuperM.
“ODDINARY” Ranks at #1 on Top Album Sales Chart
In addition to its first-ever debut at #1 on Billboard 200 chart, Stray Kids had also achieved the biggest sales for albums sold in the US up until this point.
According to the Luminate company, during the ending week of March 24, Stray Kids “ODDINARY” had achieved a total of 110,000 equivalent album units. Reaching 103,000 traditional album sales in total, Stray Kids “ODDINARY” has surpassed album sales of all artists during 2022 so far.
Besides, “ODDINARY” has also reached 6,500 streaming equivalent album units (SEA). It means that Stray Kids “ODDINARY” has gained 10.09 million on-demand audio streams during the week.

Not only has Stray Kids made their debut at #1 for BOTH Billboard 200 and Top Album Sales charts, they have also become Billboard #1 Top Artist 100 of the week ONCE AGAIN, especially after their breathtaking “MANIAC” title track.
Defeating powerful, prominent competitors like Doja Cat and Ed Sheeran, this is Stray Kids SECOND non-consecutive entry at #1 Billboard Top Artist 100 chart. As a result, Stray Kids is now the fourth Korean artist to ever place the top of the chart after BTS, BLACKPINK, and SuperM.
