K-pop world stars BTS took No. 1 on Billboard’s Social 50 chart, dominating the list for a Billboard record 77th consecutive week, chart results showed on January 2, 2019.

BTS has topped the chart, which ranks the most active artists on major social media outlets, every week since they first hit No. 1 on December 29, 2016, according to Billboard.

The band’s 17-month dominance is the longest winning streak since the chart was first complied in December 2010.
