  • What's up y'all, I'm Emile Ennis Jr. back here with Clevver Music.

  • And BTS' latest album, "BE," has broken records and made history since its release, topping both the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard 200 charts!

  • Army has been celebrating the fact that 'BE' has topped the Billboard 200 chart, a huge achievement in itself!

  • And that's not all there is to celebrate, as currently seven songs from the album have made it on the Billboard Hot 100, including the hit single "Life Goes On," which holds the number one spot.

  • "Life Goes On" marks BTS' third number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the first being "Dynamite" and the second being Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo's 'Savage Love' remix, which BTS was featured on.

  • BTS' 'Dynamite' was the band's first all-English singleand when the song made it to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, it made them the first all-South Korean group to achieve this accomplishment.

  • All three songs made it to the number one spot within a span of just three months!

  • 'Life Goes On' also marks the first Hot 100 number one single that is sung predominantly in the Korean language.

  • And like we mentioned before, a total of seven songs from the album made it onto the Billboard Hot 100 list, and given the fact that the album has eight songswe'd say this is a HUGE accomplishment!

  • 'Dynamite' re-entered the top 10 this week, and is sitting at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

  • 'Blue & Grey' sits at number 13, 'Stay' is number 22, 'Fly To My Room' is number 69,' 'Telepathy' is number 70, and 'Dis-ease' sits at number 72 on the Billboard Hot 100.

  • I might just need to sit down myself, that's freakin' AMAZING

  • BUT WAIT, that's not all BTS has to celebrate.

  • Late last monththey landed their first Grammy nomination, once again becoming the first Korean group to do so.

  • Their Grammy nomination is for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.  

  • We've said it before and we'll say it again, so well deserved!

  • To say that we're over the moon happy for BTS would be an understatementas we all know how hard they work and how well deserved all of their accomplishments are!

  • And the BTS Army agrees, and they've taken to Twitter to share their excitement for the big news

  • One fan wrote, “I am so proud of 3 x Billboard Hot 100 topping, Grammy award nominatedmulti-awarded, history breaking, barrier breaking musical phenomenons @BTS_twt.”

  • the first act in US history to occupy the entire top 6 on the Digital Song Sales, most music show wins in history, most paksmost daesangs... only BTS can do this.”

  • And other fans shared their appreciation for being an Army member,

  • like this fan who tweeted, “thank you for letting me experience this, being a fan of artists with three billboard hot100 #1 hits, grammy nomination, and multiple records broken at the same time.

  • This isn't the end and my journey with has been nothing but amazing i love you all my happiness.”

  • Furthermore, as the oldest member of BTS, Jin turns 28 this week, and a change in the South Korean law just gave him a chance to postpone his service in the military for two years

  • Military service is required for all able-bodied men between the ages of 18 and 28 in South Korea.

  • The revision of the Military Service Act in South Korea allows kpop stars who have received governmentOrder of Cultural Meritmedals to postpone their military service involvement until they turn 30 years old

  • Since all seven members of BTS were awarded this medal in 2018, they are part of the exception!

  • The medal is awarded for people who have helped spread the country's cultural influencewhich I think we can all agree that BTS has done that and more!
