I’m here supposed to be relaxing this week, taking a break because of my Birthday and all, but what happens. Would you care to take a guess at all?…. Yes BTS be out here making history once again. This time by not only beating but completely shattering their previous Billboard “Hot 100” record they had with DNA. How bad did they shatter it? Well their previous record was having ranked in the number 67th spot. This time however they climbed way higher and snagged the number 28th spot! Yes you have heard me correctly, a kpop group has now managed to crack the top 50…
This is interesting because it can only go to further show to those haters out there that this group shouldn’t be seen as some random viral craze of the week. Specially not one that is gonna now be on its way out anytime soon, because let’s be real here. If that would be the case they would not be charting higher and if anything they would be charting lower now instead. But as one can clearly see that is not happening. If anything this group is trending higher up and their popularity is exploding farther out day by day. As is visible by all the respectable publications that are starting to pick up on all this BTS news. You’re even seeing legit news sources both locally and world wide begin to cover them on a scale beginning to rival what you would expect for a Hollywood star. It’s all kinds of cray cray.
More so when you stop to take a closer look at this song that has won the 28th spot. Which if you haven’t heard by now we are talking about the MIC Drop Remix here. The one that features Steve Aoki and Desiigner. I say it’s “cray cray” for this song in particular to be charting as good as it is because it’s a freaking remix people! Of a song that was originally a B track and that has been out for months already. That makes it truly doubly amazing that it could easily out do just about all of DNA‘s achievements when THAT was their TITLE Comeback Track. Goes to show how devoted their fanbase is and also how high on demand their music is for all the new people recently jumping on the bandwagon.
This can only make one wonder, if BTS can accomplish all this with just a mini album and with a Remix of a track that had been out there previously, what will happen when they do release a full album next?! It’s almost unfathomable isn’t it and that’s exactly why I don’t think the group should be seen as yet another trendy K-pop act or anything of the such. Instead I think it is safe to say they are are in fact a Global ACT now which only makes their Global Artist Award at MMA much deserved.
So yeah where does BTS go from here? The GRAMMYs? I mean it has been joked about but it doesn’t actually sound as far-fetched as it may have a mere year ago am I right? Oh what an exciting time it is to be a fan for sure.
So if you somehow haven’t gotten on board yet I would highly advise you that you do. Other wise you are gonna miss out on a good piece of history being made. I say this because it’s not about a specific group getting attention anymore. It’s about seeing barriers being broken. Showing that people across the world can relate to each other and that different languages and cultures can cross over in a sustainable and meaningful way. And that it doesn’t have to be Hollywood crossing over all the time to other places and that it’s ok for other things to cross over into Hollywood instead. 🙂
Anyways like always feel free to share your own opinions with me. 😀 And in the off chance you haven’t heard MIC Drop Remix, here it is*boom*:
P.S. Also let me share this too because it just feels right to. It basically expresses all the reasons I love BTS but in a far better way than I ever could. It was done by a youtuber called xCeleste. 😀 It gives you the skinny on their long and historied career up to this point in time. Highlighting the tough road this group has endured to EARN everything they have now. After watching this you will understand why BBC Radio 1 is doing a special documentary on them.
