BTS's 'Dynamite' has already broken a streak of records and now the boy band is making headlines for debuting at the Number 1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

BTS, which comprises of J-Hope, Jimin, Jin, Jungkook, RM, Suga and V, is the first all-South Korean group to lead the Hot 100 chart. 'Dynamite' was released on August 21 and in no time, it had 33.9M US streams and sold 300,000 units in its first week, ending August 27. It also drew 11.6M radio airplay audience impressions in the week ending August 30.

As soon as news broke about 'Dynamite' topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart, people started slamming the song online as one user commented, "Another mediocre song that will obviously free fall next week. Rip music industry for letting this trash song top charts." One questioned the originality of the song and said, "How's this even possible... nothing original in that song." One BTS fan calmly agreed and said, "It’s not about the song bc this is not their best one that’s for sure. but is about the fandom. No matter how good the other songs where maybe their fans should have been more dedicated how army is, even if they drop next week we could care less they made history. We chilling!!"



 



 



 

Another user replied to the official Billboards tweet and said, "I don’t care they will drop on the chart next week."



 

And in no time the BTS Army came to defend the band by replying to the comments calling the track 'mediocre'. One said, "I'm sorry i can't hear you. Im listening to the #1 song on the Billboard 100 chart. If you want to talk in person, I'm at the Gucci store buying another bag for our trophies." Another said, "Please look into some of their songs and read translations. Give them a chance. We fans appreciate their lyricism and the effort they put into their songs. The fans only get mad if their faves are being disrespected. If you were in our shoes, you’d do the same. Peace."



 



 

While one fan said that this is the best that 2020 offered, saying, "I have been emotionally exhausted these days mourning & anxiously awaiting BB Hot100 news...meanwhile streaming nonstop since Dynamite dropped b/c our boys deserve it. This has been quite the day & honestly one of the best of this $****y 2020. Grammy?? F yes. Let’s get it."
