BTS First K-Pop Act to be Shazamed 1 Million Times
Another day, another record-breaking achievement from BTS.
The South Korean pop group is officially the first K-pop act to receive 1 million Shazams, Billboard reports.
According to data gathered by the song identification app, BTS' "Mic Drop" remix featuring Steve Aoki and Desiigner is the first K-pop song to be Shazamed by users 1 million times on the platform.
Shazam told Billboard that the track was first Shazamed in France back on November 16, 2017—a week before its official November 24 world release date.
Since then, the song has been Shazamed in "every country of the world," with the U.S. the leading location, in just under five months.
But this record is hardly the first BTS has broken in recent months.
Just this week, the group became the only act to be included on Forbes' "30 Under 30" Asia list in 2018.
Earlier in the month, BTS earned their first ever iHeart Radio Music Awards wins for Best Boy Band and Best Fan Army—the first for any K-pop act.
In February, they became the first K-pop group to be gold-certified by the RIAA.
