BTS Makes Record-Breaking Debut On Billboard’s Hot 100 As “ON” Takes No. 4
BTS has achieved a career best on the Billboard Hot 100 chart!
On March 2 local time, Billboard announced the Top 10 for this week’s Hot 100 chart. BTS grabs the No. 4 spot, which is their highest ever ranking on the chart and the highest score for a Korean group.
This is BTS’s third song to rank in the Top 10 of the Hot 100. Their previous highest ranking was No. 8, which they achieved with “Boy With Luv” featuring Halsey last year, while “Fake Love” debuted at No. 10 in 2018. BTS now has the most ever Hot 100 Top 10 songs for a Korean artist, surpassing PSY who has two (No. 2 with “Gangnam Style” in 2012 and No. 5 with “Gentleman” in 2013).
“ON” also scores No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart — their third song to take the lead (following “IDOL” and “Fake Love”). The track makes its debut with 86,000 downloads sold, which means it’s BTS’s best sales week for a song and the best ever for any title track since Taylor Swift’s “Me” featuring Brendon Urie debuted with 193,000 in 2019.
“ON” also enters the Streaming Songs chart at No. 13 with 18.3 million U.S. streams.
In addition, it was announced yesterday that BTS’s album “Map of the Soul: 7” has become their fourth release to take No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Billboard’s charts for this week will update on March 3 local time.
Congratulations to BTS!
