BTS is without a doubt one of the most popular K-pop boy bands across the world. Breaking and setting a new record for BTS has become a new normal. They seem to have charted yet another milestone of having their music video DNA over 1 billion views on YouTube.
BTS’ DNA, which was released in September 2017 has become the first music video of BTS to surpass this milestone on YouTube. DNA, the lead track of BTS 2017 album ‘Love Youself: her’ has achieved this feat on Monday.
Released in September 2017, DNA stayed on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for four consecutive weeks, and in February the following year, it was certified “Gold” by the Recording Industry Association of America.
BTS’s DNA took two-year, eight-month and 13 days to ganer 1 billion view on YouTube.
Besides DNA, the only Korean music videos that have more than 1 billion views on YouTuve are PSY’s “Gangnam Style,” PSY’s “Gentleman,” and BLACKPINK’s “DDU-DU DDU-DU.”
Meanwhile, the septet has announced that it is currently producing a new album to be released in the coming months. BTS is considering to hold a paid online concert, Bang Bang Con the Live, on June 14.
Congratulations to BTS on their achievement!
