The wait is finally over! Billboard HOT 100 results for the week ending in September 8 are finally out, as expected BTS made history again.
BTS’ “IDOL,” featuring Nicki Minaj scored the number 11 spot on the chart. This makes “IDOL” the second highest ranking for a Kpop group on the chart and BTS’s second-highest ranking as well.
Earlier this year, “Fake Love” debuted at number 10.
According to Billboard, the song starts at number 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart with 43,000 downloads sold in the week ending August 30.
Last night Billboard revealed that “Love yourself: Answer” ranked at Number 1 spot on Billboard 200 albums chart.
BTS previously led the list with “Fake Love,” which premiered with 29,000 in June.
On the Streaming Songs chart, “IDOL” takes number 11 spot with 24.4 million first-week streams in the United States during the week ending on August 30.
These accomplishments prove BTS a force to be reckoned with. This is also the 98th entry for Nicki Minaj on the HOT 100 chart.
The Hot 100’s chart manager Gary Trust also confirmed through his twitter account that BTS’s other songs “Euphoria” and “I am fine” have made it to the “Bubbling Under Hot 100” at number 5 and number 7 respectively.
