BTS‘s latest album, BE, and the title track, “Life Goes On”, are making waves in the music industry.
The K-Pop group has proven yet again that they’re becoming an unstoppable force as their positive influence grows worldwide, and today, fans are celebrating several new achievements that the group has accomplished that have never been done by any other K-Pop act!
For the week of November 30, “Life Goes On” debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 list at #1, making it the very first non-English language song to reach the top spot on the list! “Dynamite” is also trending again on the chart at #3.
BE is also trending at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, making them the first band in U.S. history to debut both a song and an album at #1 in the same week!
With “Life Goes On” at #1 on the Hot 100 chart for its first week, this also makes them the first band in history to earn multiple #1 debuts on the chart.
Additionally, BTS has now had the fastest accumulation of three #1 hits on the Hot 100 chart, with “Life Goes On”, “Dynamite”, and “Savage Love” (ft. Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo) all reaching that placement within the last 3 months.
And finally, BTS has also become the first musical act in U.S. history to fill the entire top 6 spots on the Billboard Digital Song Sales chart with their songs! They are, in order, “Life Goes On” at #1, “Blue & Grey” at #2, “Stay” at #3, “Telepathy” at #4, “Dis-ease” at #5, and “Fly to My Room” at #6. “Skit” is also at #9.
BTS becomes the first act in US history to occupy the entire top 6 on the Digital Song Sales chart.
#1 Life Goes on
#2 Blue & Grey
