Upon the release of the chart’s updates for the week on April 23, Billboard revealed that the group’s latest song “Boy With Luv” which featured singer Halsey had debuted at the number eight spot on its Hot 100 charts.

With this, it had smashed the record for highest-charting K-Pop song by a group of all time which they previously owned themselves with “Fake Love”, which debuted on the list at number ten. It also means that the group now has two hits which made it to the top ten of Hot 100 all-in-all.

Additionally, BTS had become the first and only Korean act to achieve at least two simultaneously-charting hits as the B-side track “Make It Right” also made it to the 95th spot on the list.

The success of BTS, especially with “Boy With Luv”, continues on as it keeps raking in achievements and records since it was released on April 12. Currently, it is ranked third on the week’s most-sold songs via Billboard’s Digital Song Sales chart. It has also placed at number five on Billboard’s most-streamed songs for the week.

Meanwhile, the album it belongs to – Map of the Soul: Persona – has become the fifth album which made it to the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 chart. It is also the group’s third number one album on the chart in less than a year (eleven months for the group, to be exact) – a feat last achieved by The Beatles in 1995-1996.
