K-pop boy group BTS wrote a new record in Japan with the group's latest Japanese single 'Lights/Boy With Luv'.
On July 3, BTS dropped its 10th Japanese single 'Lights/Boy With Luv' and unveiled the music video of 'Lights' worldwide.
The newest release immediately set new records for both the highest first-day sales and the highest first-week sales of any Japanese single by a non-Japanese artist.
The single's pre-order sales were even more impressive, as it sold more than one million pre-orders for the first time since Canadian singer Celine Dion's 'To Love You More' in 1995.
It took solid 24 years to break her record in Japan, and 'Lights/Boy With Luv' was also a hit outside the country as well.
The title track 'Lights' soared to the top of iTunes Top Songs chart in 43 different countries including Brazil, Mexico, and Russia.
