Just as fans of BTS hoped and tried so hard to achieve, “Dynamite” has officially become the group’s first song to reach #1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart!
This was due to over 250,000 digital sales of the song, as well as millions of plays on U.S. radio stations and streaming from fans.
This is a massive milestone for the K-Pop group, and is especially sweet because it happened on Jungkook‘s birthday in Korea! It also comes the day after the group won the Best Pop Award for “ON” at the VMAs, where fans got to see the first performance of “Dynamite” as well.
With all of these wonderful things happening for BTS, fans of the group are understandably elated and emotional. Here are 20 fan tweets about these accomplishments.
1. “THEY DID IT” is trending like crazy.

14. Who else feels this way?
People who aren’t a fan probably don’t understand why we go hard for Bangtan but personally their music has saved and helped heal me and just trying to support them in gaining achievements is just a token of my gratitude. They’re genuine artists. The once in a lifetime type.
