BTS Sets Records As

BTS continues to make history by taking over Billboard’s global charts!

In September, Billboard launched the Billboard Global 200 chart and the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, two charts that rank the most popular tracks globally. Both charts are based on sales and streaming data from more than 200 territories, and the rankings are determined by a weighted formula that combines official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of leading digital platforms with downloads from major online music retailers around the world.

On the Global 200 chart dated December 5, BTS’s “Life Goes On” entered at No. 1 with 152.5 million streams and 84,000 downloads sold globally in the week ending on November 26. This is the greatest streaming total since the chart began, surpassing BLACKPINK‘s previous record with “Lovesick Girls” at 123.8 million streams (dated October 17).

BTS is the first act to win three Global 200 No. 1s since they previously topped the chart with “Dynamite” for three weeks and their “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)” remix collaboration with Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo. BTS’s “Life Goes On” is one of the two songs so far that has topped the Global 200 chart and is sung predominantly in a language other than English.

“Dynamite” placed No. 3 on the Global 200 chart, and BTS’s “Blue & Grey” also entered the chart at No. 9 with 26.8 million streams and 87,000 global downloads globally. The download count is the highest among all the songs in the tracking week. All three songs that placed in the chart are part of BTS’s new album “BE.”

The Global 200 top 10 is as follows:

1. BTS’s “Life Goes On”
2. Bad Bunny & Jhay Cortez’s “Dakiti”
3. BTS’s “Dynamite”
4. Shawn Mendes & Justin Bieber’s “Monster”
5. 24kGoldn’s “Mood” featuring iann dior
6. Ariana Grande’s “Positions”
7. Billie Eilish’s “Therefore I Am”
8. Maluma’s “Hawái”
9. BTS’s “Blue & Grey”
10. Internet Money & Gunna’s “Lemonade” featuring Don Toliver & NAV

BTS’s “Life Goes On” also topped the Global 200 Excl. U.S. chart with 137.8 million streams and 42,000 downloads sold in territories outside the U.S. in the week ending on November 26. BTS is the first act with two Global 200 Excl. U.S. chart No. 1s as “Dynamite” previously topped the chart for five weeks. The group is also the first act to take the chart’s two top spots at once.

The Global 200 Excl. U.S. top 10 is as follows:

1. BTS’s “Life Goes On”
2. BTS’s “Dynamite”
3. Bad Bunny & Jhay Cortez’s “Dakiti”
4. Shawn Mendes & Justin Bieber’s “Monster”
5. 24kGoldn’s “Mood” featuring iann dior
6. Ariana Grande’s “Positions”
7. Maluma’s “Hawái”
8. Billie Eilish’s “Therefore I Am”
9. KAROL G’s “Bichota”
10. Miley Cyrus’s “Prisoner” featuring Dua Lipa.

It was previously announced that BTS’s new album “BE” grabbed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. BTS’s “Life Goes On” also made history by entering Billboard’s Hot 100 chart at No. 1. Billboard’s charts will update for this week on its website on December 1.

Congratulations to BTS!
