BTS will take over Spotify’s Teen Party playlist for the next seven days
BTS have become the first group from Asia to reach 5 billion streams on Spotify
Billboard reports that Kpop group BTS are the first group from Asia to reach 5 billion Spotify streams.
BTS, who released their new album Map Of The Soul: Persona on Friday, are the only Kpop group to reach the milestone.
To celebrate the release of their new album, Spotify promoted the group through their Teen Party playlist, which has almost 4 million followers. The group have taken over the playlist for a week.
All 17 BTS albums are listed on Spotify, as well as EPs and several standalone singles.
Last year, BTS singer Suga teased a collaboration with British songwriter Ed Sheeran. As hinted, Map Of The Soul: Persona contains a Sheeran collaboration titled ‘Make It Right’.
In other Kpop news, BIGBANG star Seungri was dropped earlier this year by YG Entertainment as a result of a sex bribery scandal. Kpop star Jung Joon-young also quit the industry for his involvement in the scandal, in which he secretly filmed 10 women.
