    It is the third time now a song written by BTS has got into the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, while 'ON', the lead track in the band's new album "Map of the Soul: 7", is also the highest-charting song ever in the history of K-Pop groups.

    The song "ON" by the South Korean boy band BTS, also known as Bangtan Boys, has grabbed the No 4 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for the weekly chart dated 7 March, Billboard said on Tuesday.

    BTS previously earned their position in the top 10 of the Hot 100 with the hits "Boy With Luv" (No 8 on the chart in April 2019), and "Fake Love" (No 10 in June 2018 chart).

    Following the news, BTS's fans took to social media to congratulate the band, attaching the hashtag #BTSWORLDDOMINATION to their tweets.

    While most fans were thrilled by the results, some felt the No 4 spot was not high enough for their favourite band.

    With at least 86,000 downloads, BTS is also celebrating its best sales week for a single song.
