BTS Sets New Record As “Fake Love” MV Hits 20 Million Views
The views on BTS’s new music video “Fake Love” continue to soar!
“Fake Love” is the title track off BTS’s third full album “Love Yourself: Tear,” and both the album and music video were released on May 18 at 6 p.m. KST. The MV hit 10 million views in only 4 hours and 56 minutes after its release.
“Fake Love” has now already surpassed 20 million views! The MV hit the milestone by 2:56 a.m. KST on May 19, which is 8 hours and 56 minutes after its release.
This beats the former record time for a K-pop group MV to reach 20 million views, which was held by BTS’s “DNA” after it reached the milestone in just under 21 hours. The record set by “Fake Love” may be the fastest time to 20 million views for any artist’s MV on YouTube, however there is a lack of official sources that could confirm this.
With not even half a day passed since its release so far, there are a lot of fans interested to see how many views “Fake Love” will gain in 24 hours. Their MV for “DNA” currently holds the record as the K-pop group MV with the most views in the first 24 hours, after reaching 21 million views within that time. They appear set to break that record soon, since they have already hit 20 million views in less than 9 hours.
The highest number of views achieved by any MV within the first 24 hours is 43.2 million views, which was reached by Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do.”
In addition to being a hit on YouTube, BTS’s “Fake Love” is also currently reigning over all major realtime charts in Korea!
