BTS’s RM Makes Record-Breaking Solo Debut With ‘Right Place, Wrong Person’

Despite currently fulfilling his mandatory military service in South Korea, BTS leader RM hasn’t stopped making music! On May 24th, he dropped his highly anticipated second solo album, “Right Place, Wrong Person.” The 11-track album features the title song “Lost” and the previously released pre-release track “Come Back To Me.” Both songs quickly soared to the top of iTunes charts worldwide and even made a splash on the UK Billboard charts.

Billboard has revealed that his highly anticipated solo album, “Right Place, Wrong Person,” is poised for a significant commercial debut. When the music charts refresh this week, RM is expected to land on several key rankings with this new release.

BTS’s leader, RM, is about to make a triumphant return to the American music scene. This album marks a major milestone for RM in several ways. Fueled by the unwavering support of fans (both his own and BTS’s), “Right Place, Wrong Person” is on track to become his most successful solo launch in the U.S. It’s set to debut at No. 5 on the Billboard 200, the most prestigious chart ranking album popularity. This surpasses his previous solo record, which barely scraped into the top 10 back in 2022.

The album’s impressive first-week performance is driven by a combination of sales and streaming activity. According to Billboard, “Right Place, Wrong Person” amassed a total of 54,000 equivalent units, the highest debut for RM in terms of overall units sold. Interestingly, a significant portion of this – a whopping 43,000 copies – reflects actual physical album sales, demonstrating that fans weren’t shy about shelling out for the new music.

It’s important to note that while these numbers are impressive for RM’s solo career, they don’t quite match the heights achieved by BTS as a whole. The group has consistently landed albums in the six-figure range on the Billboard 200, showcasing their immense global fanbase.

Despite this, “Right Place, Wrong Person” marks another strong showing for RM, securing his second entry into the top 10 of the Billboard 200. This follows his previous solo album, “Indigo,” which peaked at No. 3 in 2022.
