BTS '5-year "Black Swan" Breaks iTunes Record Set By Adele
BTS has made history, once again!
The band shared the track "Black Swan" for their mini-album "Map of the Soul: 7"
as a prerelease single on January 17, and they later displayed the song through a stunning MV.
"Black Swan" finished in Korea in realtime charts and also ranked in the Hot 100 of Billboard. Soon after its release, it dominated iTunes Top Songs charts and reached No. 1 in at least 93 regions.
This was the group's highest number of No. 1s ever reached and it only continued to grow as ARMY's BTS fans had their eyes set on a world record. The previous album to reach No. 1 on the most regions in history's iTunes Top Songs chart was Adele's "Hello," which did so about five years ago in 102 regions, in October 2015.
"Black Swan" reached No. 1 on KST's Top Songs list on July 6th Cape Verde, and Forbes reports that this is the 103rd country where the feat has been achieved by track. So BTS's reached a world record!
