BTS unlocks another milestone on YouTube!

Worldwide K-pop boy group BTS earned a new record on the YouTube platform with the music video for their 2019 well-loved track “Boy With Luv.”

On July 18, RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook officially exceeded 1.3 billion views with their “Boy With Luv” music video. They released the song together with the American pop star Halsey released on April 12, 2019, as the title track of their sixth extended play Map of the Soul: Persona. 

The septet achieved massive online views in just two years, three months, and 22 hours. Currently, it is the fastest Korean boy group MV to bag the milestone, besting out BTS’ other track “DNA,” which took three years, nine months, and two weeks.

In addition, “Boy With Luv” became BTS’ second music video to achieve 1.3 billion views. Notably, they remain the only K-pop boy group to reach the milestone. Other Korean acts who also obtained the record are Psy for his hit tracks “Gentleman” and “Gangnam Style” and BLACKPINK’s “DDU-DU-DDU-DU” and “Kill This Love.”

“Boy With Luv” is a song that talks about the joy of small and simple love. Immediately after its release, the song entered Billboard’s Hot 100 at No.8 and charted for eight weeks in a row.
