BTS‘s latest comeback, “Dynamite”, hasn’t even been out for a week since its August 21 release, and it has already broken records left and right and achieved many milestones, including just reaching 200 million views today.
It’s also been listed as the best-selling song on iTunes in the U.S. since it came out. This is a huge deal for a K-Pop act, but their achievements for iTunes don’t end there!
Four various versions of “Dynamite” actually take the top 4 places on the American iTunes chart.
In first place, of course, is the original, which shouldn’t come as a surprise.
In second place is the acoustic version of the song, which was released yesterday.
In third place, also released yesterday, is the EDM remix version of the song.
And in fourth is the instrumental version of “Dynamite”, which was released at the same time as the original version.
What’s especially unusual, and impressive, is that it’s pretty uncommon for a K-Pop act to have more than one place in the top 10 on this list when not actively promoting an album, which they’re not currently doing. However, not only are these four songs trending, but two others of theirs are as well!
In sixth place is the song “Black Swan”, off of their Map of the Soul: 7 album that was released earlier this year. Also off of that album in seventh place is “ON”.
This means that a majority — six — of the top 10 songs on the iTunes chart belongs to BTS! The other four songs are as follows: “WAP” by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion at #5, “Watermelon Sugar” by Harry Styles at #8, “Blinding Lights” by The Weeknd at #9, and “Savage Love [Laxed – Siren Beat]” by Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo at #10.
Congratulations on this huge achievement, BTS!
