BTS paves the way; becomes the first act to replace themselves at Billboard Hot 100 No 1 two times in a row
There is a reason why it is said that BTS paved the way. The group with members RM, Jin, Jimin, J Hope, Jungkook, V, and Suga made its debut in 2013 and their journey to superstardom was not overnight but was built brick by brick. For those who wonder how did BTS pave the way? Well, they are the first Asian act to receive the kind of accolades they have, a Grammy nomination, MMAs, VMAs wins and nominations, and the countless and innumerable fans around the globe, is just an added bonus. To enter the American pop music space and dominate them for eight weeks straight is NO JOKE. Billboard Hot 100 weekly chart was announced on Monday night (IST) and BTS dominated the charts yet again with Butter replacing Permission to Dance at number 1 while the latter taking Butter’s last week spot.
This is for the first time that a group (BTS) replaced themselves on Billboard Hot 100 chart at number 1 for two times in a row. This has never happened before and is the first of the many times BTS proved why they are one of the biggest bands in the world currently. Essentially from South Korea, BTS today speaks the world language with music. Their music is evolving with time and so it the way they present themselves. It was only recently that they were announced as the special envoy to President in all matters to represent their country, South Korea.
They will, in fact, be travelling to New York to attend the UN General Assembly for the third time. As soon as Billboard Hot 100 announcement was made, BTS ARMY couldn’t help celebrating. BTS leader RM too shared a post saying he misses ARMY, while Suga expressed his gratitude and couldn’t believe this was happening to them.
