BTS not only consistently break record after record but they also have set many, many firsts. They’ve set so many records you could say that being history-makers is in their very DNA! Coincidentally, their latest history-making moment is tied to their “DNA” MV.
Since dropping in September 2017, BTS’s “DNA” has smashed plenty of records. In fact, just this April, “DNA” became the most commented-on music video on YouTube with 5.07 million comments! And now, BTS and their certified bop that is “DNA” have taken another record.
On June 1, their “DNA” music video hit and quickly surpassed 1 billion views on YouTube. With that, BTS officially became the first Korean boy group in history to ever reach 1 billion views!
Additionally, “DNA” is the fourth MV to ever achieve this. The only other MVs to reach 1 billion views are PSY‘s “Gangnam Style” and “Gentleman” as well as BLACKPINK‘s “DDU-DU DDU-DU”!
Congratulations BTS! Now we’re off to listen to “DNA” to celebrate!
