BTS Scores Highest-Charting Billboard Hot 100 Hit for a K-Pop Group With 'DNA'
10/2/2017 by Gary Trust , Jeff Benjamin


The song jumps 85-67 in its second week, with top Streaming Gainer honors, passing the No. 76 peak of Wonder Girls' "Nobody" in 2009.

Another week, another honor for K-pop stars BTS.

After earning its first appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 chart a week ago (on the Oct. 7-dated ranking), as "DNA" debuted at No. 85, this week BTS notches the highest-charting Hot 100 title ever by a K-pop group, as the song surges to No. 67 (on the Oct. 14 list).

The track jumps with the chart's top streaming gain, as it concurrently debuts on the Streaming Songs chart at No. 38 with a 114 percent blast to 11.4 million U.S. streams in the week ending Sept. 28, according to Nielsen Music.

The Hot 100 blends streaming, sales and radio airplay data.

The seven-member South Korean boy band bests the only other song to have hit the Hot 100 by a K-pop group: Wonder Girls reached No. 76 in 2009 with "Nobody" (which the act recorded both in English and Korean; "DNA" is almost entirely in Korean).

BTS is the second K-pop act to chart an almost-entirely Korean-language song on the Hot 100, following South Korean rapper/singer PSY, whose smash "Gangnam Style" peaked at No. 2 for seven weeks in 2012 (marking his first of four Hot 100 visits to date).

As previously reported, BTS a week ago achieved the first-ever top 10 for a K-pop act on the Billboard 200 albums chart, as Love Yourself: Her debuted at No. 7 (on the chart dated Oct. 7).

All Oct. 14-dated charts, including the Hot 100, led at No. 1 for a second week by Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)," and the Billboard 200, topped by The Killers' No. 1-debuting Wonderful Wonderful, will update tomorrow (Oct. 3) on Billboard.com.

I'm still in shock!! I can't believe they actually did that!!!! I was expecting them to drop...barely staying in Top 100.  But of course BTS is always proving me wrong. Always expect the unexpected.

I'm so proud of them! They deserve the world!
