They’re also just the 6th of any Korean act to reach 1 billion streams, due to BLACKPINK, TWICE, and Red Velvet also hitting this number before them.

This isn’t the only big news for SEVENTEEN today — their music video for “Clap” also reached 80 million views, which is a big number for this artist!

2020 has been a really successful year for SEVENTEEN. Just weeks ago, they became the third international artist to have 4 different albums reach #1 on Japan’s Oricon charts, which had only been done by TWICE and Mariah Carey before them.

Earlier this month, it was also announced that they were the first K-Pop artist to receive the Million Plaque Certification by Hanteo Charts after their latest Korean album, Heng:garae, sold over 1 million copies in its first week.
