Earlier this month, V established a new all-time record as his song “Sweet Night” reached #1 on iTunes in a 118th country.

Hours ago, fellow BTS member RM broke an iTunes album record.

The artist’s 2018 mixtape “mono.” reached #1 on the Dominica iTunes Album Sales Chart. With its latest #1, “mono.” has now topped the iTunes album chart in 121 countries — an outright record for the platform.

“mono.” previously shared the record of 120 iTunes number ones with Ed Sheeran’s blockbuster album “Divide.”

The new records further support an already widely accepted notion: whether as individuals or as the collective BTS group, the seven artists are an undeniable force.
