A BTS remix tops charts around world
K-pop phenomenon BTS’s golden touch has helped a song top iTunes charts around the world.
Since its release on Oct. 2, ”Savage Love (Laxed - Siren Beat) (BTS Remix)” ranked No. 1 on iTunes Top Songs charts in 66 countries, Big Hit Entertainment said on Thursday.
The song also ranked No. 37 on global music streaming service Spotify’s Global 50 chart on the first day of its release and remained on the chart for five consecutive days.
“Savage Love” by U.S. pop singer Jason Derulo and New Zealand producer Jawsh 685 went viral on social media platform TikTok earlier this year.
BTS lent its singing and rapping to the remix version. The remix has both English and Korean lyrics.
The septet made history last month when their English song “Dynamite” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Singles chart, the first Korean act to do so. “Dynamite” is No. 2 on the chart, according to the chart’s latest update on Tuesday.
