MONSTA X has posted its best sales date in the US as its full-length album "The Clan, Pt. 2.5" with title track "Beautiful" debuting at #1 on the Billboard World Albums Chart. This means that MONSTA X bested its previous rankings on the world chart for their first two albums.

According to a report by Billboard, "The Clan, Pt. 1" with the title track "Lost" peaked at #5 on the World Albums Chart. "The Clan, Pt. 2" with the title track "Guilty" did better than its predecessor and ranked third on the chart.

The report also indicated that MONSTA X also made it to the Top 10 of Billboard's Heatseekers Albums chart in the 10th spot. Only two other K-pop acts have made it to this particular chart - NCT 127's "Limitless" at No. 4 and most recently, GOT7's comeback album "Flight Log: Arrival," which made it to the #3 spot.

MONSTA X's "Beautiful" also debuted at #4 on the World's Digital Song Sales Chart, which further emphasized the growing fanbase of the hip hop group. "Beautiful" has been well received by MONSTA X fans in Korea and around the world.

The MV for "Beautiful" has also received positive reviews for the simple yet sleek choreography combined with the sophisticated setting of the MV that highlighted MONSTA X's respective parts in the song. To give their fans a look at how they prepared for the MV, the group released some behind the scenes footage of their practice sessions, Soompi reported.

MONSTA X members also took the opportunity to share with their fans the significance of the different sets in the video. "Beautiful" is the third and much-awaited comeback album of the K-pop idols. Its performance in the iTunes US and Japan charts proved that MONSTA X and their Monbebe official fandom really have what it takes to break ahead in the very competitive music industry.
