BTS have broken a YouTube viewing record with their latest music video

Rosalind O'Connor  NBC  NBCU

Just one day earlier, BTS dropped their newest album, Map of the Soul: Persona, which featured seven new songs, including one with Halsey.

BTS and Blackpink fans are reportedly at war over K-pop bragging rights.

As for the meaning of this song, well, BTS leader RM (short for Rap Monster) says that it comes as a follow-up to the "Boy in Luv" track from 2014 and explains how the boys have grown up and what love means to them now and it's all about the little things, you know!

YouTube Music took to its official Twitter handle on Sunday morning to confirm this mind-numbing achievement, declaring 'Boy with Luv' music video to have indeed become the most watched 24-hour debut.

Celtics use second-half defense to down Pacers in Game 1
Jayson Tatum chipped in 15 of his own on 6-11 shooting and a flawless 3-3 from deep. "I thought he played really big and strong". The Boston Celtics can take complete control of this series with a victory here and building a 2-0 lead.

Whether it was to promote her ongoing Omaze charity campaign or to openly fangirl over K-pop band BTS, Emma Stone served as host for this weekend's new edition of Saturday Night Live, and her best sketch proved she's got a particular knack for going meta with her roles.

While it appears that this is another record that might be broken in just a matter of days or weeks, it seems as though the devoted BTS ARMY look set to help the group stay at the top of their game with more of these record-breaking feats.

Even more awesome is the fact that BTS not only broke the previous record of 56.7 million views, set by Blackpink's "Kill This Love" just last week, but that they smashed it by nearly 22 million views.

By 2015, they'd made their first appearance on the Billboard 200 chart and, a year later, their album Wings would peak at No. 26, the highest ranking ever for a K-pop album.
