BTS Makes History As New LP ‘Love Yourself’ Tops iTunes In 73 Countries
It’s been a history-making 24 hours for K-Pop Gods BTS. The biggest boy band in the world (it’s no longer a debate) dropped their new album Love Yourself: ‘Her’ yesterday and promptly topped the charts in a whopping 73 countries — the most for an Asian act. But that wasn’t the only record they broke. Lead single “DNA” reached number one on iTunes in 29 countries and peaked at a very impressive number 4 in the US. The instantly-catchy banger also entered the Spotify Global Top 50 Playlist.
But wait, there’s more! The intergalactic video for “DNA,” which serves otherworldly choreography and special effects, racked up 20 million views in less than a day. The only videos to pass that milestone quicker are Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do,” PSY’s “Gentleman,” Adele’s “Hello,” Major Lazer’s “Sua Cara” and Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” remix featuring Justin Bieber. Not bad company! Watch the clip below and stay tuned for a record-breaking debut on the Billboard 200 next week.
