BTS is looking pretty chill for a band who are breaking so many records.

Just days after K-pop girl group BlackPink broke the record for the quickest video to reach 100 million views on YouTube, fellow South Korean megastars BTS are being reported to have smashed that record.

Korea Times reported that the video for Boy With Luv hit 100 million views 37 hours, 37 minutes after its release. The official YouTube Twitter account confirmed yesterday that, while they were still working out the details, the video was indeed the new record holder.

BlackPinks Kill This Love reached the milestone on April 5 in 62 hours.

The song, featuring American singer Halsey, is from the groups latest album, Map of the Soul: Persona, released on Friday. At the time of publication, views for Boy With Luv stood at more than 126 million. This record marks the 18th time a BTS video has passed 100 million views.
