BTS Becomes 1st Korean Group To Make The Top 10 Of IFPI’s Annual Global Digital Single Chart

BTS’s “Dynamite” scored a spot in the Top 10 of IFPI’s 2020 Global Digital Single Chart!

On March 9, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) announced its annual Global Digital Single Chart for last year, with “Dynamite” taking No. 10. The chart is measured based on success on all digital formats, including single track downloads and streams on both paid subscription services and ad-supported platforms.

This is the first time BTS has ranked on the list, and they’re the first Korean group to do so. The only other all-Korean act to chart on the ranking is PSY, who took No. 3 for 2012 with “Gangnam Style.”

According to Billboard, IFPI’s Top 10 Global Digital Singles of 2020 based on subscription stream equivalents worldwide are:

1. The Weeknd – “Blinding Lights” (2.72 billion)
2. Tones and I – “Dance Monkey” (2.34 billion)
3. Roddy Ricch – “The Box” (1.67 billion)
4. Saint Jhn – “Roses” (1.64 billion)
5. Dua Lipa – “Don’t Start Now” (1.62 billion)
6. Future (feat. Drake) – “Life Is Good” (1.57 billion)
7. Xiao Zhan – “Made To Love” (1.48 billion)
8. DaBaby (feat. Roddy Ricch) – “Rockstar” (1.45 billion)
9. Billie Eilish – “Bad Guy” (1.36 billion)
10. BTS – “Dynamite” (1.28 billion)

It was also announced last week that BTS is IFPI’s Global Recording Artist of the Year for 2020. This made them the first Asian artist to take No. 1 on the list, which ranks artists based on worldwide popularity across digital and physical music formats. IFPI’s album charts come out later this week.

Congratulations to BTS!
