BTS has achieved their third hit on Billboard’s Pop Songs chart!
On November 27, it was announced that Steve Aoki’s track “Waste It on Me,” which features BTS, has entered the Pop Songs chart at No. 39 for the week ending in December 1. The news was shared by Billboard with the title “BTS Earns Third Pop Songs Chart Hit With Steve Aoki Collab ‘Waste It on Me.’”
The Pop Songs chart ranks songs based on radio airplay data, and measures total weekly plays among a reporting panel of 167 mainstream top 40 stations in the United States, using data from Nielsen Music.
