According to the group's agency Big Hit Entertainment on Wednesday, BTS' new single "DNA," the lead track from the group's latest EP "Love Yourself Seung Her," ranked No. 50 on Spotify's Global Top 50 playlist, marking the first time any K-pop musician has cracked the list.

The Global Top 50 consists of the 50 most streamed songs on the platform on a daily basis.
