Hot news) BTS ‘Dynamite’ debuts No. 1 on Billboard HOT 100
BTS’s new English-language track “Dynamite” has entered the chart at No. 1! This is the highest ranking on the chart achieved by an all-Korean group.
According to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, “Dynamite” achieved 33.9 million U.S. streams and 300,000 sales in its first week, which ended on August 27. It gained 11.6 million radio airplay audience impressions in the week that ended on August 30.
“Dynamite” reached 265,000 downloads sold in its first week, with its overall first-week total sales of 300,000 including vinyl and cassette physical versions.
“Dynamite” therefore ranks higher than PSY’s “Gangnam Style” that peaked at No. 2 in 2012. Japanese-born Kyu Sakamoto was the first Asian artist to reach No. 1 on the chart, doing so with “Sukiyaki” for three weeks in 1963. Billboard notes that Far*East Movement topped the Hot 100 for three weeks in 2010 with “Like a G6,” and the group’s lineup included two members of Korean heritage at the time. cr
