BTS’ Boy With Luv becomes first MV to achieve this feat
Korean boy band BTS’ music video Boy With Luv has hit a new milestone. It has gone on to garner more than 1.4 billion views on YouTube. This makes it the first and fastest Korean Boy Group MV to achieve this feat. Boy With Luv hit the milestone at around 10 a.m. This is the group’s first music video to do so.
‘Boy With Luv,’ is the main track of the septet’s sixth EP ‘Map of the Soul: Persona’. It hit the milestone at around 10 a.m., according to the group’s management agency Big Hit Music.
The upbeat track, featuring American singer-songwriter Halsey, was released in April 2019. It debuted at No. 8 on Billboard’s main singles chart. The music video stayed on it for eight consecutive weeks. It has taken two years and seven months for Boy With Love to reach this milestone. The only other Korean music videos to have surpassed 1.4 billion views are PSY’s ‘Gangnam Style’ and ‘Gentleman’ and BLACKPINK’s ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’ and ‘Kill This Love.’
Including ‘Boy With Luv,’ the K-pop giant now has a total of 35 music videos that have garnered more than 100 million views.
