The YouTube landscape is much broader than the ongoing tussle between the Swedish creator and Indian music record label.

The Korean septet has built a fan base that's broad (its videos are viewed many hundreds of millions of times each), deep (its fans tend to be intensely devoted, especially on social media) and fully worldwide (its new record, Map of the Soul: Persona, is nearly certain to top the USA album charts this week). BTS' video for Boy With Luv hit 100 million views in less than two days.

"Boy With Luv" now officially holds the most-viewed 24-hour debut in all of YouTube's history. The video was released on Friday (April 12).

The record was previously set by South Korean K-Pop group BLACKPINK, whose video for "Kill This Love" reached 56.7 million in one day. Both videos already have well over 1 million views.

This is a shout out to the ARMYs around the globe, who supported the BTS comeback with full-force and helped the boys achieve new records.
