With ‘Dynamite,’ BTS broke two more Guinness World Records.
The members of the BTS boy band from South Korea are no strangers to creating headlines and shattering records. BTS, for example, became the first band since the Beatles to have three songs at the top of the Billboard 200 in less than a year with Map of the Soul: Persona in 2019. The trio is also one of the most-streamed musicians on Spotify, with billions of listens.
That trend hasn’t slowed down either. BTS’s popular tune “Dynamite,” which was added retroactively in the band’s 2020 album Be, recently set two additional Guinness World Records.
It all started with BTS’s debut album in 2013.
Although BTS was founded in 2010, it took several years for the group’s format and musical approach to be finalized. 2 Cool 4 Skool, the bandmates’ debut album, was released in June 2013. South Korea, their home country, was quick to notice.
According to Billboard, in November 2013, they were “honored as Best New Artist at South Korea’s Melon Music Awards, their first major prize.” “They went on to win a slew of more prizes during the 2013-2014 award season.”
In 2016, BTS released Youth, a Japanese-language album, and Wings, a Korean-language album. The two albums quickly became commercially successful and marked their huge break into the public.
According to Rolling Stone, “Wings… was one of the most conceptually and sonically adventurous pop albums of 2016,” becoming Korea’s best-selling album of the year. BTS was also named one of the top ten new performers to watch in 2017. BTS expanded abroad that year, with sold-out stadium concerts all over the world.
BTS has amassed a slew of multi-platinum albums and singles, as well as a slew of awards. Numerous Billboard Music Awards, American Music Awards, and a Grammy nomination are among them. However, one of their most recent tracks is breaking records all around the world.
