No one can deny BTS’ impact on not just K-pop but music as a whole. With members of ARMY (the name of their extremely loyal fanbase) stationed all over the world, RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook have reached Beatles-like levels of superstardom most musical acts can only dream of achieving.
The septet has come a long way since debuting as a hip-hop group in 2013 under a virtually unknown label. They made their first major move on the Billboard charts in 2017 when their album Love Yourself: Her emerged at No. 7 on the Billboard 200, becoming the highest ever debut for a K-pop act. The album’s lead single “DNA” was their first entrance on the Hot 100, but the chart moves don’t end there. Their first all-English-language single “Dynamite” became their first to debut at the summit in 2020. A number of their other tracks have made history on the charts since, including collaborations with Halsey, Nicki Minaj, Coldplay and more.
Continuing to release hit after hit, BTS has proven they’ve made their mark on the world (dare we say, universe). Take a look at the supergroup’s most massive hits on the Hot 100 below.
BTS’ Biggest Billboard Hot 100 Hits ranking is based on weekly performance on the Hot 100. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at lower spots earning the least. Due to changes in chart methodology over the years, eras are weighted differently to account for chart turnover rates during various periods. Songs are ranked based on a formula blending performance, as outlined above.
