Is BTS heading towards world-domination?
Wait, why is that even a question?
With their new single ‘Dynamite’, BTS has officially secured the No.1 spot on the United States Billboard Hot 100 Charts!
What’s even more exhilarating though, is the fact that they’re the first Korean act to have reached such a milestone!
“Within the first week of its release, ‘Dynamite’ had hit 33.9 million US streams with 300,000 units sold. In terms of digital sales, BTS had the biggest week in close to three years.”
Alongside that, Dynamite’s music video also set a YouTube record by gaining the highest number of views within 24 hours!
The music video has over 300 million views up to date and this has resulted in a frenzy!
The 7 Korean boys have not only enchanted the world with their melodious voices but also with their humorous & humble personalities. Their youthful spirits and cute, charming looks have had us all blushing and awestruck!
Also, I kid you not, everyone (literally EVERYONE) is raving about the band on Twitter:
BTS is also known to have the most unique and lovable relationship with their fans. They even call them Army- and we all know a country can’t run without an army right? How thoughtful! The boys were left speechless after all their heroic achievements, however, they did exclaim “BTS=Army”!
The BTS name has been buzzing everywhere, even the South Korean President had to tweet about their incredible feat:
The song “Dynamite,” which topped the list, is all the more meaningful as it has been composed to give a message of comfort and hope to people around the world who are struggling with COVID-19. It will bring huge consolation to Koreans suffering from the national crisis caused by COVID-19. I offer my heartfelt congratulations.
— Presiden Moon Jae In
We’re on the moon as we hear of all the successes of these young singers! And now we’re just dreaming about hearing their songs live one day! That would be magical!
(P.S I hope you got the pun in the title :P)
