BTS is one of the most well-known bands in the world. When it comes to breaking records and making history, BTS is always at the forefront. Guinness World Records announced on Thursday that the South Korean septet will be inducted into its Hall of Fame in 2022, with 23 records created by them.
The Guiness World Records took to its official Twitter handle and wrote, THE BOYS ARE IN THE BOOK Congratulations to @bts_twt who have a spread in the upcoming #GWR2022 book! After breaking countless records throughout 2021, they have also cemented their place in the Guinness World Records Hall of Fame.” The Guinness World Records said in its website that, “We are delighted to welcome BTS to our Guinness World Records Hall of Fame.”
The BTS have set multiples records and the popularity has only grown since their initial claim to worldwide recognition at the Billboard Music Awards in 2017, when they received the award for Best Social Artist. And now Guinness World Records mentioned a statement by BTS Army that says, “BTS have collected a jaw-dropping 23 Guinness World Records titles across music and social media, an amazing result achieved also thanks to the enthusiasm of their fans, the ARMY.”
BTS has broken records on social media, including Twitter and YouTube, with songs including Dynamite, Butter, Mic Drop feat. Steve Aoki, and Boy With Luv feat. Halsey. According to Guinness World Records, BTS’ second English language song Butter, released in May 2021, “single-handedly snatched five records, including the most viewers for a music video premiere, and the most streamed track on Spotify in the first 24 hours.” They were the first K-pop group to be nominated for a Grammy in 2020 for their popular song “Dynamite.”
