However, while they were busy celebrating that milestone, BTS were also being met with the news that their latest single, "Boy With Luv", had broken a YouTube viewing record.

The group is the first K-pop act to be a musical guest on SNL; Psy notably made an appearance during a September 2012 sketch with Bobby Moynihan, who impersonated him on the series after the success of "Gangnam Stye".
Halsey's vocals capture "the giddiness of being in love, while the lyrics address the relationship the group has with its ARMY: 'I'm flying high in the sky with the two wings you gave me, ' with the wings referencing the title of their second album".
