TWICE's "TT" was a hit in both Korea and Japan, but it's now set an incredible record in Japan that'll be hard for any other K-pop artist to beat!

"TT", which was released in October 2016, has just spent its 100th week in the Billboard Japan Hot 100, making it the first K-pop song ever to achieve such a feat!

There are only 8 songs in Billboard Japan Hot 100 history that have charted for 100 weeks or longer. The top record holder is One Ok Rock with "Wherever You Are", which was on the charts for 144 weeks. Other J-pop acts to have hit over 100 weeks are Motohiro Hata, Keyakizaka46 and Sandaime J Soul Brothers.

Only two international artists have made it over 100 weeks on the charts, Pharell Williams and Taylor Swift.

Congrats to TWICE on making K-pop chart history in Japan!
