Billboard revealed on May 24 that RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jung Kook were able to achieve another historic record. Upon the release of its charts’ weekly updates,  it announced that the boys have made history on the Billboard Artist 100 chart as they became the first group or duo to lead the list for five weeks. Additionally, they broke the previous tie that they had together with the duo Twenty One Pilots.

Previously at the third place last week, the K-Pop septet was able to rise to the top after surpassing Vampire Weekend and Billie Eilish.

In June 2018, the idol group became the first K-Pop act to reach the number one spot on the Artist 100 list. To provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity, the chart measures the activity of artists across key metrics. Specifically, it looks into music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming, and social media fan interaction from each artist.

Since the list’s launch in 2014, American singer Taylor Swift still holds the record of having the most number of weeks on the Artist 100 chart’s top spot with a total of 36.

Moreover, “Boy With Luv”, the latest track off BTS’ chart-topping album Map of the Soul: Persona is also staying at Billboard Hot 100 chart for five weeks now. Currently at 61st place, the hit song recently peaked at the eighth spot in April 2019.
