BTS Army is overjoyed! The boyband recently surpassed 1.6 billion views on YouTube thanks to one of their biggest hits; what song could this be?

According to Geo News, the K-Pop group has set a new record by receiving their second 1.6 billion views thanks to the music video for “Dynamite.”

This is their second song to reach that milestone, following their Halsey collaboration “Boy With Luv,” which was the first.

In addition to breaking their own record, they dethroned BLACKPINK, whose song “DDU-DU DDU-DU” was the first to reach this milestone in two years and 11 months, making them the fastest K-Pop group to do so.

The latest development comes a year after they broke several Guinness World Records, including being the most-viewed video and music video on YouTube within 24 hours and the most-viewed video on the platform by a K-Pop group.

Furthermore, they had a historic run on the Billboard100 for the most weeks spent on the US chart by a K-pop song, spending 32 consecutive weeks.

They later broke their own record when they released “Butter,” which received 108.2 million views in 24 hours.

BTS is not only a successful group, but its individual members are also breaking records and reaching milestones. According to early reports, member Jin ranked fifth on the World Digital Song Sales Chart’s top 15.

Three of the singer’s songs, “Tonight,” “Abyss,” and “Super Tuna,” were previously only available on Soundcloud and YouTube, but he later made them available on major streaming platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music.

After the songs were officially released, they debuted at the top of the World Digital Songs Sales chart and remained there for the next three weeks.

“It’s Definitely You,” his collaboration with V for the drama “Hwarang,” and “Yours,” the official song of “Jirisan,” are the other two songs on the list.

In other news, he released a song called “The Astronaut” earlier this month and performed it in Argentina as part of Coldplay’s “Music Of The Spheres Tour.”
