BTS’s “Dynamite” Sets Record As It Rises To New Heights On Billboard’s Pop Songs Radio Airplay Chart
“Dynamite” rises on Billboard’s Pop Songs radio airplay chart for the week ending December 19, achieving a peak of No. 5 that sets a new record for all-South Korean acts on the chart!
The ranking measures total weekly plays on approximately 160 mainstream Top 40 radio stations, and back in November BTS first broke the No. 10 record set by PSY’s “Gangnam Style” in 2012. They’re now the first all-South Korean act to grab a spot in the Top 5.
“Life Goes On” holds the top spot on the Digital Song Sales chart for the third week, while “Dynamite” rises up to No. 2.
BTS also remains at No. 1 on the Artist 100, in their 15th non-consecutive week at the top. They continue to reign on the Social 50 chart in their 209th non-consecutive week in the top spot, extending their own record for the most weeks at No. 1 of any artist.
Congratulations to BTS!
