BTS has once again entered the famous Billboard charts in the US, and this time around, their entry is more specific to its members. Announced on December 2, the K-pop group's RM and Suga have debuted in the top 10 of Billboard's Hot 100 Songwriters Chart, at No. 3 and No. 9 respectively. RM has writing credits in every song in BTS' latest album 'BE' except for 'Dynamite', while Suga has credits in every song except for 'Dynamite' and 'Stay'.

The weekly Hot 100 Songwriters Chart is based on total points accrued by a songwriter for each attributed song that appears on the Hot 100. Additionally, genre-based songwriter or producer charts follow the same methodology based on corresponding "Hot" named genre charts. As with Billboard's yearly recaps, multiple writers or producers split points for each song equally (and the dividing of points will lead to occasional ties on rankings).

Megan Thee Stallion also debuted on this week's Hot 100 Songwriters and received the No. 1 spot. Other entries in the top 10 included names such as Finneas, Morgan Wallen and DaBaby. The year-end round-up of the Hot 100 Songwriters for previous years has seen names such as Drake, Stevie Nicks, Roddy Ricch, Ed Sheeran and more. So, if RM and Suga keep up a streak on the chart till 2020's year-end chart, BTS will continue to blow up in the US and around the globe.

Fans have been quick to share their support and are going ecstatic on Twitter. "Amazing! The accomplishments just keep coming! I can't believe it. Namjoon and Yoongi must be so happy. #[email protected]_twt," said a fan while another wrote, "So proud of Namgi they truly deserve this! They've been writing beautiful/meaningful lyrics and music for so long."



 

 



 

One fan said, "See when you write your own music..Kings of lyricism!" "ARMYs are focusing on their faves and it shows," wrote a fan. "2 genius lyricists owned by @BTS_twt," added another fan. One fan shared lyrics by RM, saying, "one of the most mindblowing lines namjoon has ever written is “i was just a person, but you eroded my edges and turned me into love” and in korean 사람 (person) --> 사랑 (love) so the corners on ㅁ literally erode to turn into ㅇ"
