K-Pop sensations BTS once again hit the mainstream Billboard Hot 100 chart this week.
The title song "Yet To Come" and another song "Run to BTS" from their latest album "Proof" were ranked 13th and 73rd, respectively.
It's the latest of many appearances in the charts.
In 2017, four years after their debut, the group started having a presence on the Hot 100 which ranks the most popular songs each week.
Their first song on the chart was "DNA" which ranked 85th in September of that year.
With the lyrics mostly in Korean, this was the second song in Korean after Psy's "Gangnam Style" to enter the chart.
A year later, "Fake Love" made it into the top ten and in 2020 "Dynamite" wrote history by making BTS the first South Korean artists to top the chart.
So far, a total of 25 songs by BTS have charted on the Hot 100 with 6 ranking number 1.
Hit song "Butter" especially stands out as it spent 10 weeks on the top.
The group's albums have also shown a stellar performance.
In 2015, the album "The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 2" first made it to the Billboard 200 the main albums chart.
3 years later, "Love Yourself: Tear" became the first K-Pop album to snatch number 1.
From that album up to "Proof", which was released early this month, BTS have landed six number 1 albums on the chart.
And of course, the K-Pop stars have seen success in other countries as well.
"Proof" became their 10th album to top Japan's Oricon weekly albums chart selling more than 5-hundred-10-thousand copies last week.
It has also swept the top spots of official album charts in Germany, Belgium, Australia, and the Netherlands.
