BTS's new single "ON" debuts at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 (with virtually no radio play)

Besides their album debuting #1 on the Billboard 200 with 422,000 units and 347,000 in pure album sales on the first week without merch & concert bundles nor radio play, their other feats include:

1. their new album, "Map of the Soul: 7" debuting at #1 in all Top 10 major music markets in the world where official charts are available (US, Japan, UK, Germany, France, South Korea, Australia, Canada). This is the first time an Asian group has achieved this rare feat.

2. debuting three new songs on this week's Billboard Hot 100 (ON at #4, My Time at #84 and Filter at #87). "ON" at #4 marks the highest chart position ever for a Korean group. Solo act PSY's "Gangnam Style" is the only Korean act to reach higher at #2 in 2012. However, BTS surpassed PSY by having the most top 10 hits on the Hot 100 among all Korean acts.

3. BTS's ON debuting as the bestselling song in the US, selling over 85,000 copies in one week.

4. BTS claiming seven of the top 10 spots on the ranking of the bestselling individual tracks in the US.

5. BTS charting their fourth No. 1 album in both overall sales and charts within a span of less than 2 years. This puts them in the same league as the Beatles who were the last group to achieve four No. 1 albums in less than 2 years (1966-1968).
