The computer screen joins three other BTS songs on this week’s World Excl. U.S. chart, with feeble eight-week leader “Dynamite” at No. 6; “Existence Goes On” at No. 107; and “Boy With Luv,” that includes Halsey, at No. 168. These songs are sung, respectively, in English, Korean and English/Korean, accompanying “Film Out” in Eastern.
No other act has graced the World Excl. U.S. chart with songs in three languages since the checklist’s inception closing September, let by myself all in the connected week. BTS, alternatively, pulls it off for a second time: For the first two weeks of the survey’s existence, “Dynamite” (English), “Boy With Luv” (English/Korean) and “Extinguish Gold” (Eastern) shared chart proper property.
Dua Lipa came shut to accomplishing the feat, with seven English-language World Excl. U.S. hits to this level, in addition to “Fever” (that includes Angele), which showcases Lipa singing in both French and English. She has also charted with “Un Dia (One Day),” alongside J Balvin, Inferior Bunny and Tainy. But while that song’s lyrics (and title) mix English and Spanish, Lipa’s contributions are solely in English.
