Apple has tweeted that K-Pop band BTS has broke the record for the biggest show of the year with the debut episode of #BTSRadio on Apple Music 1.
BTS, also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a South Korean boy band that was formed in 2010 and debuted in 2013. Having sold over 32 million albums on the Gaon Music Chart, BTS is the best-selling artist in South Korean history and holds the best-selling album in South Korea with “Map of the Soul: 7.” They are the first Asian and non-English speaking act to be named the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry’s (IFPI) Global Recording Artist of the Year (2020–2021), to chart on Billboard‘s Top Touring Artists of the 2010s (placing at number 45), and to headline and sell out Wembley Stadium and the Rose Bowl (Love Yourself World Tour in 2019).
Apple’s streaming service launched “BTS Radio: Past & Present” on Apple Music 1 on May 28. The three-episode limited series will air weekly, leading up to the release of the band’s new album “Proof,” which arrives on June 10.
