The music video for their collab broke the record for most YouTube views accrued in the first 24 hours of its release, according to multiple reports. As of 2:45 p.m. PT on Saturday, "Boy With Luv" had already garnered more than 98 million views, and has over 2.4 million comments from their loyal BTS ARMY from across the globe.
BTS' record breaks previous record holder BLACKPINK's "Kill This Love," which earned over 56 million in 24 hours. The K-Pop girl group had beat out Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next."
"We've been learning and know that music truly transcends language. We're just grateful for all the ARMYs," RM expressed, adding that their fans prove that there is no language barrier when it comes to supporting artists from other parts of the world.
BTS will next make an appearance on Saturday's new episode of Saturday Night Live with host Emma Stone.
