BTS Dominates iTunes Charts Worldwide With “Lights”
BTS is topping Tunes charts across the globe with their new Japanese single!
On July 3, BTS made a splash on the Japanese music charts by releasing their 10th Japanese single “Lights/Boy With Luv.” Not only did “Lights/Boy With Luv” debut at the top of Oricon’s daily singles chart, but it immediately set new records for both the highest first-day sales and the highest first-week sales of any Japanese single by a foreign artist.
However, BTS’s new single was also a hit outside Japan as well—shortly after its release, the group’s new Japanese title track “Lights” soared to the top of iTunes charts in countries all over the world. As of 9:03 a.m. KST on July 5, “Lights” had hit No. 1 on iTunes Top Songs charts in at least 43 different regions, including Brazil, Mexico, and Russia.
Additionally, Oricon Chart has now announced that “Lights/Boy With Luv” has managed to top its daily singles chart for the second consecutive day.
Congratulations to BTS on their impressive achievements!
