‘DNA,’ ‘Boy With Luv’ hit milestones

BTS continued their streak of milestones over the weekend after two of their music videos hit significant view numbers on YouTube.

The first big news came on Saturday morning, when the music video for “DNA” (2017) hit 800 million views at around 6 a.m., becoming the first video by the group to have reached the milestone.

On Sunday morning, the group’s latest hit “Boy With Luv” surpassed 500 million views at around 8 a.m., making it the boy band’s seventh music video to have been seen over 500 million times.

“Boy With Luv,” a dance track released in April, holds three Guinness World Records: the most-viewed YouTube video in a 24-hour period, the most-watched YouTube music video in a 24-hour period and the most-watched K-pop music video in a 24-hour period.

The video was watched 74.6 million times on April 12, the day it was released.

“Map of the Soul: Persona,” the group’s seven-track EP that features “Boy With Luv,” has appeared on the Billboard 200 album chart for the past 16 weeks.
