What is the first band to have three global No. 1 hit songs in billboard?
As their new album BE debuts on charts everywhere, usually at No. 1 (and if not, very close to the highest space), several songs from the set stand out as some of the most popular in the world right now. The group snags another leader on an important global ranking, and in doing so, they achieve something no other act has in history. BTS’s single “Life Goes On (2021)” debuts atop the Billboard Global 200, a relatively new ranking published by the chart company that lists in order the most-consumed songs in the world, looking at sales and streaming data from hundreds of territories.
The tune, which serves as the latest single from BE, is BTS’s third champion on the Billboard Global 200 (2021), which is something no other solo musician or group can claim. In fact, the South Korean septet remains the only act to snag more than one leader, so with this latest smash, they put more distance between themselves and every other name which has found itself at No. 1 on the tally.
BTS collected the second-ever No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 back in October 2020 when their disco-pop giant “Dynamite” made its way to the throne. The tune would go on to lead the charge for three nonconsecutive runs, making it one of the most successful rulers yet.
