BTS made No. 10 on the Billboard Radio Songs Chart with hit single “Dynamite,” Billboard announced Tuesday.
 
“This week, it becomes BTS' first Radio Songs top 10,” Billboard said. “The single is also the first Radio Songs top 10 by an all-South Korean act; previously, PSY hit a No. 12 high with 'Gangnam Style' in 2012.”
 
The band’s English single "Dynamite" released in August is continuing its success, ranking 10th on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week after ranking third last week.
 
Meanwhile, BTS’s latest release "Life Goes On" ranked 28th after debuting at No. 1 last week on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. 
 
The relatively large drop in the second week after topping the chart is attributed to the amount of weekly radio airplays in the United States. According to Billboard, “Life Goes On” earned 410,000 radio broadcasting points in the first week, while the first-week figure for “Dynamite” was 11.6 million.
