BTS new single on Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100
BTS debuted at No. 15 on the U.S. Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart for its new single “Spring Day” !
“Spring Day” title track of the group’s new album “Wings: You Never Walk Alone.” It also the first position in the list World Digital Songs Sales, being this its third time in the no. 1 from this list. In addition, “You Never Walk Alone” achieved no. 1 in the World Albums list, being their third time as top artist of the list.
Bubbling Under Hot 100 acts as an extension of the 25 songs that have yet to chart on the definitive Hot 100 singles chart and are just below the top 100 slots. Like the main Hot 100 chart, rankings are based on sales, radio airplay and streaming data.
Unprecedented given the history of K-pop on Billboard’s chart of singles, Billboard’s Jeff Benjamin said “BTS’ Spring Day is almost all in Korean, had zero promotions in America, was released as new music during a notoriously competitive week with the 2017 Grammy Awards, and ‘Spring Day’ dropped on a Sunday, making their charting window smaller than other releases.”
The album “You Never Walk Alone” also on the no. 61 of the Billboard 200 list, and this is the group’s fourth entry on “America’s definitive album list,” as stated on Billboard.
He said “the accomplishment gives hope and acts as a guiding light to the burgeoning K-pop scene and indicates how Korean acts can continue making their mark on the American industry.”
Meanwhile, BTS’s new “Not Today” MV also become the first K-Pop group music video to reach 20 million views.
