BTS Have Officially Broken One Direction’s Long-Held YouTube Record

BTS has broken 1D’s YouTube viewing record.

BTS‘s popularity is soaring higher by the day, and they have the numbers to prove it!


For a long time, English-Irish boyband One Direction has held the #3 spot on YouTube’s “most viewed groups” ranking, but no longer. With 8.9 billion views and counting, BTS is now in the top 3!


In second place is Coldplay with 10.9 billion views, and Maroon 5 takes first place with a staggering 13.9 billion. With each new release, BTS’s views skyrocket, so they may be climbing even higher up the ranks before the year is out!
