The band reached number one on “Hot 100” nine times with “Dynamite” (3 times) and “Savage Love” (1 time), “Life Goes On” (1 time), and “Butter” (4 times).

They are considered to be the first Korean artist to occupy the Billboard 200 chart with their album Love Yourself:
Tear (2018) and have since topped the U.S. charts with their albums Love Yourself: Answer (2018), Map Of The Soul, Persona (2019), and Map Of the Soul: 7 (2020), making them the fastest group to reach the number one number in less than two years since the Beatles’ debut.
