Korea’s BTS Shatters YouTube Record for Views in 24 Hours With ‘Boy With Luv’ Featuring Halsey

K-pop geniuses BTS, the most well known kid band in world, have crushed YouTube's record for the most perspectives accumulated in the initial 24 hours of discharge with their single "Kid With Luv," highlighting American pop star Halsey.


Starting at 5 a.m. ET Saturday, "Kid With Luv" had piled on a little more than 78 million perspectives, as indicated by YouTube. That wrecked the past record, set only seven days back by K-pop young lady bunch Blackpink's "Kill This Love," which had 56.7 million perspectives in its initial 24 hours to top Ariana Grande's "thank u, next."

Likewise, BTS's "Kid With Luv" video on YouTube drew an amazing 2 million remarks in the initial 24 hours.

BTS is the melodic visitor on April 13 scene of NBC's "Saturday Night Live," facilitated by Emma Stone, where the gathering is slated to perform "Kid With Luv."

Starting at early Saturday, "Kid With Luv" had been the No. 2 inclining video worldwide on YouTube, behind the primary trailer for Disney/Lucasfilm's "Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker" (Episode IX). Note that YouTube positions slanting recordings dependent on numerous components, including perspectives and client commitment.

"Kid With Luv" is a reference to the gathering's 2014 melody "Kid in Luv." According to Variety's audit of BTS's new collection "Guide of the Soul: Persona," discharged Friday, Halsey's vocals catch "the energy of being enamored, while the verses address the relationship the gathering has with its ARMY: 'I'm flying high in the sky with the two wings you gave me,' with the wings referencing the title of their second collection."

In the mean time, in the U.S., every one of the seven melodies from BTS's "Guide of the Soul: Persona," discharged Friday, are on Apple's iTunes top 10 music diagram. On iTunes, "Kid With Luv" remains at No. 2 behind the remix of Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" nation hip-jump track highlighting Billy Ray Cyrus.

BTS is a shortened form of "Bangtan Sonyeondan" (방탄소년단), which actually means "impenetrable scouts" albeit two years prior they declared an expansion of their image in English to "Past the Scene." The seven-part gathering — including individuals RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook — was shaped by Big Hit Entertainment in 2013. This past February, BTS turned into the main K-pop gathering to introduce an honor at the Grammys, where they offered the trophy for best R&B collection to H.E.R. for her self-titled collection.

The "Kid With Luv" video, which pays reverence to Gene Kelly's exemplary motion picture melodic "Singin' in the Rain," was coordinated by YongSeok Choi of Seoul-based generation house Lumpens. BTS dropped the new video Friday, April 12, at 6 p.m. Korea Standard Time (5 a.m. EDT).
