BTS continues to raise the bar in the music industry with their 2020 hit single Dynamite

Aside from being the first K-pop group to be nominated at the Grammys in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category, BTS continues to shatter records by achieving two new Guinness World Records with the popular single. 

With a total of 18 weeks on the charts as of Apr 2021, Dynamite has earned a Guinness World Record as the track with the most weeks at No.1 on Billboard’s Digital Song Sales chart. 

Dynamite has now surpassed the 2017 track, Despacito, which held the previous record at 17 weeks.

The K-Pop supergroup was also awarded a second title as the South Korean group with the most weeks on Billboard’s US Hot 100 charts. 

As of Apr 13, Dynamite has spent 32 consecutive weeks on the charts, overtaking PSY’s Gangnam Style which held the previous record at 31 weeks. 

This achievement adds onto BTS’s other three Guinness World Records for Dynamite including its title of being the most viewed YouTube video in 24 hours.

While Dynamite has since been knocked off the top spot for digital song sales with the group’s latest release, Film Out, there seems to be no signs of slowing down for the group’s continued success.
