Amidst the comebacks this September, BTS is making headlines with their latest title track “DNA”! Released on their fifth mini-album, Love Yourself: Her, the new song (and album) has been claiming records left and right! Despite leaks before its release on September 18th, the group did not falter.

What has the Billboard-holder earned in the first 24 hours of release?

1. Fastest Kpop artist to reach 10 million views on YouTube (also with 1 million likes!)

Not only that— BTS trended first on YouTube in several countries!

2. Bringing home a YouTube-record of 21 million views in 24 hours

As of 24 hours since its release, BTS had racked up a total of 21 million views!

They also claimed the fastest Kpop artist to reach 20 million views on YouTube!

They even got themselves an all-kill on MelOn!


4. Earning their rightful spot on Spotify’s Global Top 50 Chart
