It seems like every week, BTS scores another No. 1 hit on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart, and this frame is no different. The band is back on top of the tally, which ranks the bestselling “world” songs in the U.S. every week with yet another new piece of music, and they once again put more distance between themselves and every other group who has reached the highest possible spot.
BTS’s recent release “Lights” takes a step up and claims the throne this frame, granting the band yet another leader. The Japanese single is now the group’s sixteenth to make it all the way to the top.
Last week, the seven-member vocal group was in charge with “Heartbeat,” a song featured on their recent soundtrack album BTS World. The tune is one of four songs featured on the full-length, which accompanies a mobile game of the same name they recently released. First up from BTS World was “Dream Glow” with Charli XCX, and that single was followed by two other collaborations, “A Brand New Day” with Zara Larsson and “All Night” with Juice WRLD.
Before BTS World and its four No. 1 hits arrived, BTS had been busy promoting their previous album Map of the Soul: Persona, which produced a sole leader, “Boy With Luv,” which features American pop singer Halsey.
With “Lights” now running the show on the World Digital Song Sales tally, BTS claims their sixth No. 1 single on that chart of the year, which now stands as their best performance in any single year. In fact, when “Heartbeat” landed at the top last week, BTS set a new personal high bar with a fifth champion, and now they’ve improved once again.
