But the South Korean septet’s long list of achievements does not even stop there. According to Billboard chart, BTS has managed to snag the number 1 position in Billboard Hot 100 with three songs in the last three months, first being ‘Dynamite’ released in August and dominated the chart at 1 consecutively for two weeks, slipped to number two in third week only to come back at number one at the fourth week again. BTS collaborated with Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo's 'Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat) remix’ which also sat at number one and the third being ‘Life Goes On’. Billboard also noted that ‘Life Goes On’ is the “first Hot 100 No. 1 in the chart's 62-year history sung predominantly in Korean.”
Again establishing that music transcends the language barrier, BTS is clearly ruling music charts all over the world and fans are celebrating the group’s historical moment with them. A fan posted, “i’m so happy for you. you guys literally deserve the whole world but i feel like it’ll still be less.

An excited fan shared, “I HAD TO COUNT THEM AND THEY WERE SEVEN, I COULDN'T MY EYES, I THOUGHT IT IS PDOGG OR SOMEONE ELSE BUT Y’ALL YOONGI IS HERE” and another said, “I HAD TO COUNT 10 TIMES TO MAKE SURE I WASN'T HALLUCINATING.”
