Boy band Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, celebrated their first No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart with the latest single "Dynamite" with an event livestreamed on YouTube on Wednesday.

The band said their next record-breaking goal is to perform on their own solo stage at the Grammy Awards. So far they have accomplished all of their stated goals.

Suga expressed joy but added said he now feels pressure to set another milestone. "We performed in a collaboration stage [with rapper Lil Nas X] at the Grammys in January this year, but this time, we would like to perform on our solo stage," he said.

"Winning an award would be nice, but since it requires help from many others, we are looking forward to dominating our own stage for now."

The single, their first in English, has swept digital sales, topping the iTunes charts in 104 countries and Spotify's Global Top 50 chart as soon as it was released on Aug. 21.

The accompanying music video set a new record on YouTube by racking up over 100 million views in less than 24 hours.
