BTS’s 'Dynamite' lands at No. 5 on Billboard’s Pop Songs radio chart
BTS’s “Dynamite” is continuing to dominate music charts, landing at No. 5 on Billboard’s Pop Songs radio chart after its most recent update on Dec. 15.
The chart is one of the main radio airplay charts of Billboard, measuring total weekly plays of the top 40 songs on around 160 mainstream radio stations.
It marks the first time for the boy band to make it to the top five on the airplay chart and is the highest ranking for any Korean act. Psy’s global hit “Gangnam Style” reached No. 10 in 2012.
BTS's latest EP "BE" also ranked 18th on Billboard's 200 album chart for the third week.
Meanwhile, the music video for the band's first fully English-language song surpassed 694 million views on Dec. 15, only four months after its release, becoming the second most viewed music video on YouTube in 2020, behind Future’s “Life is Good,” which has accumulated 1.3 billion views since its release in January.
