BTS “Dynamite” Scores #1 on Billboard Hot 100 in US

Global superstars BTS have achieved the #1 position in the US on the Billboard Hot 100 with their single “Dynamite” in week one and remains at the #1 position in its second week! BTS made history with their charting position, becoming the first all-South Korean group to ever lead the Billboard Hot 100 list. 

In addition to charting #1 in the US, “Dynamite” also secured spots on the singles chart in over 15 countries and in the Top 10 of ten countries (and counting). 

Accompanying their single release, BTS released their pastel wonderland of a music video. And to no one’s surprise, BTS smashed another world record for the most YouTube views in 24 hours — garnering up 101.1 million views in just one day. The group also made sure fans could enjoy “Dynamite” in every mood by releasing five “Dynamite” Remixes: Instrumental, Acoustic, EDM, Tropical, and Poolside. 

It has been busy for the Pop phenomenons, from performing at the 2020 VMAs — winning Best Pop, Best K-Pop, Best Group, and Best Choreography — to charting in countries across the globe.
