KUALA LUMPUR, March 14 — The boys have done it again, even on hiatus.
South Korean boyband BTS has broken their own Guinness World Record for the most streamed band on Spotify.
The seven-member group has amassed over 31,960,000,000 streams on Spotify with 37,226,216 monthly listeners as of March 3, 2023.
They broke the record they previously achieved at 16.3 billion streams in April 2021.
Their most played songs are Dynamite with 1.60 billion streams, Butter at 1.08 billion and Boy with Luv with 1.01 billion.
This will secure their spot among the top male bands on Spotify alongside Queen, Imagine Dragons, Coldplay and Maroon 5.
In 2023, they were also awarded three records for being the music group with the most followers on Instagram, TikTok and Twitter.
Previously, the group achieved the most viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours with Butter and was the first Kpop group to reach the top spot on the US albums chart.
Currently, the band is on hiatus due to their members undergoing mandatory military service.
J-Hope is expected to begin his service soon after releasing his solo hip-hop track On the Street with American rapper J. Cole.
Meanwhile, Jin has been sharing occasional updates on his time in the army on social media with his latest post on March 6 featuring J-Hope and Jimin.
BTS is expected to reunite as a group in 2025, according to Big Hit Entertainment.
