BTSnew album Love Yourself: Her, and lead single "DNA," have been smashing records all over the shop since their release on September 18.

According to an interview with Billboard, Rap Monster knew it was going to be massive for the group, even before it dropped.

"I left a message on our fan cafe, the other day, after we finished that 'this EP will mark the turning point of BTS'," he told Billbaoard.

Rap Monster said that "DNA" is different to the group's previous music, and is going to start a new chapter for the boys.

"It's very different from our previous music, technically and musically. I believe it's going to be the starting point of a second chapter of our career; the beginning of our Chapter Two," he told the music publication.

Since it's release, Love Yourself: Her has broken a lot of records, including the most first day sales for a new album and the most viewed K-pop group MV in 24 hours, as well as hitting Number One in 73 countries on the iTunes charts

The Chainsmokers also landed in the top 10 of Billboard's Social 50 after the album's release - they have a track on the album called "Best of Me."
