Here’s a look at every solo song by a BTS member to chart on the Hot 100, listed chronologically from their debuts:
BTS made its first Billboard chart appearance in 2013, when “No More Dreams” debuted at No. 14 on World Digital Song Sales (before climbing to No. 2 seven years later). Since then, the group has broken numerous records, including the most Hot 100 No. 1 debuts among groups (five) and the most top 10 debuts among groups (nine). BTS notched its six Hot 100 leaders to-date over just a year and a month in 2020-21, the quickest accumulation of six since The Beatles earned six over a year and two weeks in 1964-66.
Notably, BTS joins other groups with at least three members that have notched individual Hot 100 hits. The list includes these 10 elite acts:
The Beatles (George Harrison, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr)
Eagles (Don Felder, Glenn Frey, Vince Gill, Don Henley, Randy Meisner, Timothy B. Schmit and Joe Walsh)
Fleetwood Mac (Lindsey Buckingham, Billy Burnette, Dave Mason, Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks and Bob Welch)
Genesis (Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Mike [Rutherford] + The Mechanics)
Migos (Offset, Quavo and Takeoff)
New Edition (Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Bobby Brown, Ronnie DeVoe, Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant)
New Kids on the Block (Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre and Donnie Wahlberg)
One Direction (Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn)
U2 (Bono, Adam Clayton, The Edge and Larry Mullen Jr.)
On Tuesday (Jan. 24), the band’s founder and sole original member, singer Brendon Urie, 35, announced that as he and his wife await the birth of their first child he is calling and end to the band’s two-decade run.
