You may have heard of "Dynamite", the upbeat smash-hit released by Korean boyband BTS on August 21 2020.
Not only did the song top charts around the world, but it broke multiple Guinness World Records titles including the most viewed YouTube video in 24 hours as well as the most viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours and the most viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours by a K-pop group.
But we can now announce that "Dynamite" has broken two more records following its historic stay in both Billboard's US Hot 100 and Digital Song Sales Chart.
Until 13 April 2020, the single held the record for the most weeks on the US Hot 100 by a K-pop track after spending 32 consecutive weeks in the top 100.
The track was No.1 for three weeks (5-12 September and 3 October 2020), as well as being in the top two for seven weeks and in the top 10 for 13 weeks.
It also remained in the top 50 since its No.1 debut on 5 September 2020 until 13 April 2020.
"Dynamite" also spent 18 weeks at the top of Billboard’s Digital Song Sales Chart, breaking the record for the most weeks at No.1 on Billboard’s Digital Song Sales Chart.
As of April 2021, its 18th non-consecutive week at No.1 eclipsed the 17-week record held by "Despacito", by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber, in 2017.
However, "Dynamite" has since been knocked off the digital song sales top spot, only to be replaced by "Film Out" - another BTS single!
Let's wait and see if "Film Out" can hold the top spot for 18 weeks too.
