BTS Achieves New Personal Best Rankings As “Dynamite” Debuts In Top 10 Of Charts In United Kingdom And Germany
BTS has achieved their highest debuts yet on singles charts in the United Kingdom and Germany!
On August 28 local time, Official UK Charts announced that BTS’s new English-language single “Dynamite” has debuted on the singles chart at No. 3. This is their highest charting song to date and their first ever Top 10 single. BTS’s previous highest peak on the chart was No. 13, which they achieved with “Boy With Luv” featuring Halsey in April 2019.
“Dynamite” earned 50,200 chart sales this week, which are composed of 5.3 million streams and 22,000 downloads.
Official Charts shares that BTS said, “We feel humbled and honored to have earned a new personal best on the UK Official Singles Chart.” They went on to say, “First and foremost, we give all credit to ARMY—without their support and love from day one, we wouldn’t have come this far.”
BTS added, “Dynamite was created in the hopes of bringing some vibrant energy that the world needs right now more than ever. If it made one person happier, then that’s more than enough for us.”
Meanwhile, “Dynamite” grabs No. 8 on Germany’s Offizielle Deutsche Charts for singles. This is the first time a BTS single has entered the Top 10 in Germany, and their latest track “ON” peaked at No. 36.
The United Kingdom and Germany are two of the world’s five biggest music markets. The scores achieved by “Dynamite” in its first week in the remaining three countries (the United States, Japan, and France) have not yet been announced.
Congratulations to BTS!
