MANILA, Philippines — Global Korean boy group sensation BTS has broken three Guinness World Records (GWR) with its “Boy With Luv” music video featuring American singer-songwriter Halsey.

GWR announced Thursday that “Boy With Luv” music video achieved the titles “Most viewed Youtube video in 24 hours,” “Most viewed Youtube music video in 24 hours,” and “Most viewed Youtube video in 24 hours by a K-pop group.”


Youtube recorded 74.6 million views in the first 24 hours since that BTS’ music video  was released on April 12.
