As of May 6, BTS has notched up 22 weeks at No.1 on the Social 50 chart, putting the boys in 3rd place for the most ever weeks atop the chart. Not only is this an impressive achievement by any measure, BTS have managed to overtake big some big-name pop stars in the process, such as Miley Cyrus and Rihanna. The only artists who have more weeks at No.1 are Taylor Swift (28 weeks) and Justin Bieber (161 weeks).
Among musical groups, BTS are far and away at the top of the pile in terms of weeks at No.1, with One Direction coming in at No.2 with 8 weeks.
Perhaps the most impressive part of BTS' run on the Social 50 Chart is their consistency, having never left the top 2 positions since the boys first hit the chart on October 29, 2016.
A huge congrats to BTS for their latest Billboard chart achievement!
