‘Dynamite’ recently became the longest-charting single by a Korean artist on the Billboard Hot 100. BTS’ record surpassed a 31-week run by Psy in 2013 for ‘Gangnam Style’. ‘Dynamite’ also became the longest-running No. 1 on Billboard’s Digital Song Sales Chart, surpassing Luis Fonsi’s ‘Despacito,’ which topped the chart 17 times.

The song also broke multiple streaming records on Spotify, iTunes, and YouTube, and earned the group their highest-charting single in the UK when it debuted at number three.

The ‘IDOL’ hitmakers - comprising of Suga, RM, Jin, Jimin, J-Hope, Jungkook and V - also became the first K-pop act to receive a major Grammy nomination,

The South Korean supergroup have already had a successful year so far, launching a promotional meal deal with McDonald's and being named a brand ambassador for Louis Vuitton. In a press release announcing the ambassador role, Louis Vuitton called BTS “one of the most renowned and influential groups in the world”.
