They released the song together with the American pop star Halsey released on April 12, 2019. It is the title track of their sixth extended play Map of the Soul: Persona. 

Notably, the group earned the impressive milestone in two years, seven months, and 11 days after the release of the music video. Other Korean acts who previously obtained the record are Psy for his hit tracks “Gentleman” and “Gangnam Style” and BLACKPINK’s “DDU-DU-DDU-DU” and “Kill This Love.”
