BTS Smashes YouTube Record With “Boy With Luv”

By  | 

Today, BTS adds yet another record broken to their extensive list of accolades!

Good news, ARMYs! “Boy With Luv” has officially surpassed 100 million views — a day and thirteen hours after its initial release.

“Boy With Luv” officially reached this milestone at around 7AM KST, on April 14. This makes them the fastest Korean act to garner 100 million views on their music video, a record previously held by BLACKPINK’s “Kill This Love”.

Aside from smashing YouTube records, BTS also swept international music charts! All of its seven tracks also reigned over the U.S. iTunes Top Songs chart, with the lead track “Boy With Luv” featuring Halsey nabbing the top spot.

Korean music charts also reflected the same situation, where the songs occupied the top spots of the six major sites Soribada, Genie, Naver, Bugs, Mnet, and Flo with Map of the Soul: Persona.

This record-smashing success may not come as a surprise for some — as BTS has broken pre-order records prior to their comeback! Amazon reported on March 14 that the group had taken the top spot on their CD and Vinyl Bestseller category for their upcoming mini-album release, a day after pre-orders opened.
