BTS enters Top 10 on 'Billboard Hot 100', highest ranking ever for a K-Pop group

(Bangtan Boys) BTS
BTS made it onto 'Billboard Hot 100's Top 10!

This week, BTS landed at No.10 on 'Billboard Hot 100' with their latest hit "Fake Love". The superstars are the first K-Pop group ever to enter the Top 10 on the 'Hot 100' chart. 

"Rounding out the Hot 100's top 10, BTS bows at No. 10 with "Fake Love," from the group's new album Love Yourself: Tear, which, as noted above, roars in as the group's first No. 1 on the Billboard 200, where it's also the first leader for an album in the K-pop genre.

BTS additionally breaks its own record for the highest-charting Hot 100 hit for a K-pop group, passing its "MIC Drop" (featuring Desiigner), which reached No. 28 in December. Only one other K-pop act has charted top 10s on the Hot 100: South Korean rapper/singer PSY, whose smash "Gangnam Style" peaked at No. 2 for seven weeks in 2012 and "Gentleman" hit No. 5 in 2013.

Further, "Fake Love" is the first K-pop song to debut in the Hot 100's top 10, besting PSY's "Gentleman, " which started at No. 12."

Prior to this, BTS made history by becoming the first K-Pop group to top the 'Billboard 200' chart with 'Love Yourself: Tear'.
