This is BTS' sixth Billboard Hot 100 number 1 hit following their English singles - 'Dynamite,' 'Butter,' 'Permission To Dance' - 'Savage Love' with Jawsh685 and Jason Derulo, and 'Life Goes On' from their best-selling album, BE. BTS now has five number 1 debuts on the Hot 100 chart, tied with Drake and Ariana Grande for the most Hot 100 top debuts of all time. The single also extends BTS' record as the artist with the most number 1 hits on the Hot 100 this decade.

Co-produced by Max Martin, the Swedish producer now ties with The Beatles' producer George Martin for the most number 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 at 23 songs each.

In a tweet, Coldplay sent their congratulations to BTS and their thanks to both Coldplayers and the BTS ARMY. BTS replied with their own congratulatory message saying "It's been always an honour to make this all happen with you!"
