BTS’ Comeback : “The Story That’s Not Yet Been Told”
BTS is coming back.
On 23rd January, the Agency of BTS, BigHit Entertainment, announced that BTS will comeback with the continuation of Wings : You Never Walk Alone.
You Never Walk Alone is an album including the story that was not told in the album Wings (released in October 2016), which has received much love from all over the world.
This time, members of BTS have actively participated in the composing, lyric-writing and producing of the new songs. Higher expectations of the album can be seen.
Wings has reached no.26 in the Billboard 200 ranking, currently a record among Korean singers. It was also the very first Korean album to enter the Official Album Chart in the UK at no.62. And with physical sales of 75,1301 albums, BTS has been topping the Gaon Album Chart. Love has been felt both locally and overseas.
BTS will be holding the 2017 BTS Live Trilogy Episode III The Wings Tour in Seoul on the 18th and 19th February. We look forward to seeing the record that will be made with the comeback this time.
Zayn and Taylor Swift’s “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever (Fifty Shades Darker)” debuts at No. 6, marking Swift’s 20th Hot 100 top 10
Zayn and Swift’s “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever (Fifty Shades Darker)” launches at No. 6 on the Hot 100 following its first full week of tracking. It bows as the week’s best-selling song, entering Digital Song Sales at No. 1 with 188,000 sold in the week ending Dec. 15 (thus, encompassing all the song’s first-week sales following its Dec. 9 release). Swift scores her 11th Digital Song Sales No. 1, tying Katy Perry for the second-most in the chart’s history; Rihanna leads with 14.
“Live” also debuts at No. 26 on Radio Songs (39 million), drawing 3.5 million domestic streams for the week. Notably, the track, while available on Apple Music, Tidal and other subscription-only streaming services, was withheld from Spotify during the tracking week; however, it was made available on Spotify as of Dec. 16. Plus, the lack of an official video for “Live” kept it from bowing even higher on the Hot 100 (as YouTube clicks are often a major driver for songs’ streaming totals).
With the debut, Swift earns her 20th Hot 100 top 10, and Zayn, his second as a soloist (after four with 1D). She’s the 16th artist in the Hot 100’s archives to tally at least 20 top 10s, and the sixth woman; Madonna leads all acts with 38 top 10s. The other women to have reached the milestone: Rihanna, with 29; Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson, 27 each; and Whitney Houston, with 23. (Now with 20 top 10s, Swift matches the totals of Chicago and The Supremes.) “Live” is also Swift’s record-extending 13th top 10 Hot 100 debut.
