BTS Once Again Breaks Another Record, Here’s What It Is

As of writing this article, "DNA," the title track from their mini-album "Love Yourself: Her," has gotten exactly 1,203,096,965 billion views on YouTube. The "DNA" was released last September 18, 2017, and the lines discuss the topics of fate and falling in love at first glance.

BTS performed "DNA" as an Electronic Dance Music inspired pop song, which is usually the style of BTS. The music video took three years and four months to reach 1.2 billion since it reached that value this February. Prior to this, "DNA" previously got 1 billion views last June of 2020. This means that at this trajectory, the song will hopefully hit 1.5 billion views by approximately this time again in February of 2021.

Moreover, this makes Big Hit Entertainment's BTS the first-ever male K-Pop group to get this outstanding accomplishment successfully. BLACKPINK and PSY are the only other K-Pop artists to have reached a billion hits on their MVs. "DDU-DU DDU-DU" with 1.49 billion views and "Kill This Love" with 1.2 billion views for BLACKPINK and "GANGNAM STYLE" with 3.9 billion views and "GENTLEMAN" with 1.3 billion views for PSY.

More records the title track "DNA" set was that it formerly stayed on Billboard's Hot 100 for four straight weeks. In addition, the former BTS anthem also was awarded last 2018 February, a gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America, a trade organization that represents the recording industry in the United States and is also known as RIAA.

Additionally, BTS is also anticipated to perform on MTV's Unplugged special on February 24, which almost everyone is looking forward to.

With all these laurels, BTS and their ARMY will be having a really good Valentine's Day! But moving forward, it is almost certain that this will not be BTS's last MV that hits 1 billion views.
