BTS once again took the throne in Billboard Hot 100.

Recently, “Life Goes On,” the title track of BTS’s latest smash BE, landed at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100.

BTS, who took the top spot earlier in August with their first English song “Dynamite,” once again wore the crown with “Life Goes On.” Another impressive fact is that “Life Goes On” is the first song sung in a non-English language to open atop the Hot 100 chart.

With BE, BTS topped both Billboard 200 (album) and Hot 100 (song) at the same time. BTS became the first artist since Taylor Swift to blast into No. 1 on both charts in the first week of their entry.

This mega Korean act became the only K-pop group in history to have more than two songs that debuted at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100. This is the third time that BTS has topped the Hot 100. Starting in August, the group has dominated the chart with three songs – “Dynamite,” a remix version of “Savage Love,” and “Life Goes On.”
