1. BTS' Journey to Number one position at Billboard Hot 100:
The K-pop band made it to the number one position at Billboard hot 100 chart with their pop-retro song 'Dynamite' released in August 2020. They are the first Asian artists after Luis Fonsi to achieve this huge record. Not only this, the song remained in the first position for more than 3 weeks. This BTS' song is truly a high charting queen!
After this, they made their second appearance on the chart with their collaboration song 'Savage Love' with Jason Derulo, and Jawsh 685. It was a remake of the original version which was released in June 2020 but couldn't get a top rank on the chart. However, the remake version with BTS topped the chart and added another feather into the band's cap. Well, they made it clear that they will achieve everything with their amazing talent!
Apart from BTS' English songs, their Korean track, 'Life Goes On' for the album 'BE' achieved the first rank on the BB Hot 100 chart. It was truly a proud moment for the band and the fans as after Despacito, it's the first non-English song to make this kind of impact! Also, they got this without any radio show plays. Thus, it speaks a lot that how dedicated the band and their fans are!
