BTS has set a new record for K-pop groups on Billboard’s Hot 100!
On October 3 KST, Billboard announced that BTS’s hit track “DNA” has come in at No. 67 on the Hot 100 (which ranks the most popular songs of the week) for the week ending in October 14.
This is the highest that a K-pop group has ever charted, surpassing “Nobody” by Wonder Girls which came in at No. 76 in 2009.
“DNA” previously entered the chart at No. 85 last week, becoming BTS’s first entry on the Hot 100 and achieving a longtime dream for both the group and their fans.
The song has also debuted on Billboard’s Streaming Songs chart at No. 38. According to Nielsen Music, there were 11.4 million streams of the song in the United States during the week ending in September 28.
All Billboard charts will be updated on October 3 local time.
