BTS made history last week when its "Love Yourself: Tear" album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, making the group the first K-pop act to top the chart. The lead single, "Fake Love," reached No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, becoming the band's first top-10 hit and its best-performing song.
