It’s just a good week to be BTS.
Monday (October 12), the septet learned they’d made history by becoming the first K-Pop group ever to boast two career Hot 100 chart-toppers thanks to their remix of Jason Derulo‘s comeback hit, ‘Savage Love,’ topping the tally (as we reported here). What’s more, the tune also tops this week’s Billboard GLOBAL 200 chart.
As if that’s not enough to celebrate, ‘Dynamite’ – the group’s current hit (as a lead act) – enjoyed an explosive boost in streams and sales thanks to a weeklong residency at ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ (click here to watch).
The second best-selling song in America last week, the tune’s #2 landing means BTS occupies the top two spots concurrently – another history making feat!
Thanks to the handsome mix of digital downloads, streams, and radio airplay (outlined below), BTS holds at #2 on this week’s Hot 100.
- Digital downloads: 94,000
- Streaming: 13.4 million
- Radio Airplay: 27.3 million
Occupying the #1 and #2 spots concurrently not only penciled BTS in history books for being the first K-Pop group to claim such feat, but they’re also the first group (regardless of genre) to do such since The Black Eyed Peas did it for four weeks in summer 2009 with their hits “Boom Boom Pow” and “I Gotta Feeling.”
Look below to see who joins BTS in the top 10 of this week’s singles chart.
