Step aside, Pewdiepie and T-Series die-hard fans.

While it appears that this is another record that might be broken in just a matter of days or weeks, it seems as though the devoted BTS ARMY look set to help the group stay at the top of their game with more of these record-breaking feats. However, it has now been surpassed by the Bangtan boys with a massively huge margin.

BTS now holds the MOST-VIEWED 24-hour DEBUT streaming record on YouTube with 78 million views! The video was released on Friday (April 12).

The music video, which features Halsey, has since received over 100 million views on the video platform.

The stars made history as the first K-Pop act to ever perform on the show. But this new surge feels like a genuine tipping point: The SNL appearance dominated social media all weekend, and BTS will drop another heavily hyped spectacle at the Billboard Music Awards on May 1.

The energy in the live studio audience is palpable in both YouTube clips of their performances - of "Mic Drop" and the new song, "Boy With Luv" - with the usual polite clapping replaced by shrieking cheers. Let's give it up for you guys with the famous BTS fan chant "Kim Namjoon, Kim Seok-jin, Min Yoon-gi, Jeon Hoseok, Park Jimin, Kim Taehyung, Jeon Jung-kook!"
