BTS' new song has become their fourth hit on the UK's biggest chart show, The Official Big Top 40.

BTS' new single 'Black Swan' has entered The Official Big Top at Number 34, becoming the group's fourth UK hit.

The song, taken from their upcoming album Map Of The Soul: 7, was only released on Friday but has been streamed and downloaded so many times in the last two days that it debuted on the UK's biggest chart show this Sunday.

BTS became the first K-pop group to have a song in the chart back in 2018, when IDOL landed on The Official Big Top 40.

Since then, they've sold millions more records around the world and in June last year became the first non-English speaking group to perform a headline show at Wembley Stadium.

Also on The Official Big Top 40 this week, The Weeknd claimed a second week at Number 1 with 'Blinding Lights'.

There were a total of eight New Entries on the show, including from the likes of Future, Jonas Brothers and Stormzy. Dafydd Iwan's 'Yma O Hyd' was another New Entry, following a campaign from fans in Wales to get the song in the chart.

Plus, Halsey joined Will Manning in the studio to talk about her new album Manic which was released on Friday. Her latest single 'You Should Be Sad' climbed into the Top 10 for the first time this week, rising to Number 9.
