“Voice of Angels” by Celtic Woman took the top spot while Pink Martini followed with “Je Dis Qui!”

BTS also ranked No.1 on Billboard’s Social 50 chart, a ranking of the most active artists on the world’s leading social media sites.

The boy band also proved its popularity with the music video for “Spring Days.” The video generated 10 million views in just 26 hours and 38 minutes on YouTube, the fastest K-pop group to do so.
