This milestone comes just a day after Stray Kids topped the Billboard 200 albums chart for the fourth time with their latest mini-album, ‘ROCK-STAR’. The project’s lead single is ‘LALALALA’.
The group’s first Billboard 200 Number One record was the March 2022 mini-album ‘Oddinary’, which featured the hit single ‘Maniac’. They would also top the chart again in October 2022 with ‘Maxident’, and June this year with ‘5-Star’.
The K-pop boyband were also awarded the Top K-Pop Album for ‘5-Star’ during the 2023 Billboard Music Awards. During the same night, girl group NewJeans took home the trophy for Top Global K-Pop Artist.
