In the latest weekly chart tallied between Feb. 15-21, “Dynamite” continued to stay strong, ranking No. 6, it added.


This is the second time a BTS single has earned more than a million points on the Japanese music chart. Its Japanese single album “Lights/Boy with Luv” also achieved the record 15 months after it was released in July 2019. “Dynamite” reached the milestone in just six months.
