Solo artist Psy and K-pop girl group Blackpink have already achieved this feat with “Gangnam Style” and “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du,” respectively.

“DNA,” the main track from the septet’s album “Love Yourself: Her,” was released in September 2017.

Last week saw BTS taking over “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” where they spoke to host Jimmy Fallon about their upcoming album “Be,” which will drop on Nov 20.

“We poured in the emotions that we feel now such as joy and sorrow, into this album. There are a lot of good songs, as good as 'Dynamite.' So, we hope we can make it to the Hot 100 chart,” Jimin said.

The K-pop stars also spoke about their dream of winning a Grammy, with RM saying they grew up watching the awards show.

“Grammy is the most honorable music award that evaluates the prominence and the musical odyssey of an artiste. So, we all grew up watching Grammy Awards. and we especially remember the 2009 concert with the suits, Jay Z, TI and M.I.A We watched all of it,” RM said.

The BTS leader added that winning one would be a source of happiness and hope for their fans.

“Doing a solo BTS performance with our own song winning the Grammys is kind of awesome and a dream that has grown inside us,” he said. “Winning a Grammy in such difficult times could give greater hope and dreams to a lot of people, especially our Army.”
