June 12 (UPI) — South Korean boy band BTS is back on the Billboard Pop Songs chart.
The K-pop group’s single “Fake Love” debuted at No. 38 on the chart ending June 16. The chart measures total weekly plays among a Nielsen Music reporting panel of 158 mainstream top 40 stations.
BTS is the first K-pop group to have had multiple songs appear on the Billboard Pop Songs chart. The group’s song “Mic Drop” reached No. 25 on the chart in January.
South Korean rapper Psy is the only other K-pop act to have appeared on the chart. The rapper’s song “Gangnam Style” peaked at No. 10 in 2012.
