BTS' latest release of "MIC Drop," which was remixed by renowned DJ Steve Aoki and featured Desiigner, has been nothing short of a massive success, racking up millions of views and a history-making debut on the Billboard charts. BTS weren't the only benefactors of this success though the release of "MIC Drop" has also translated to some Billboard chart success for Aoki and Desiigner!

For the week dated December 162017, on the Billboard Social 50 chart, which tracks the most popular artists on various social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Wikipedia, and Tumblr, BTS were No.1 once again for a 51st week.

This week though, the boys were joined by their "MIC Drop" collaborators, both of whom saw massive jumps on the Social 50 chart. Aoki landed in at No.2, which represented a massive jump from his previous spot of No.30 and a new peak position on the chart. Just tweeting about "MIC Drop" gave Aoki a huge 287% increase in Twitter mentions, which played a big part in his new Social 50 peak.

As for Desiigner, the rapper had never made it into the Social 50 chart prior to this week. Thanks to his collab with BTS however, Desiigner has made his Social 50 chart debut at an impressive No.16.

A big congrats to BTS, Steve Aoki, and Desiigner for what's been a successful release of "MIC Drop" and for their big week on the Billboard charts!
