The viewership of “On,” the second music video from BTS’s latest album “Map of the Soul: 7,” surpassed 100 million views, becoming the K-pop supernova’s 23rd music video to do so.

According to Big Hit Entertainment, “On” surpassed 100 million views at 4:59 a.m. Thursday. The first music video from the album, “‘On’ Kinetic Manifesto Film: Come Prima,” broke 100 million views last month.

“On” reached 10 million views just 65 minutes after its release on Feb. 27. Prior to that, the record was held by the group’s “Boy With Luv,” which reached 10 million views two hours and 52 minutes after its release on April 12, 2019.

Meanwhile, the group is taking part in “HomeFest,” a special concert series hosted by “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on CBS next Monday night. The concert is part of the show’s effort to find creative ways to entertain American viewers while respecting the social distancing regulations in place due to the virus pandemic. Megastars such as Bilie Eilish, Dua Lipa, John Legend and BTS will perform live for Corden through video chats.

This will be the group’s fifth appearance on The Late Late Show. After appearing in 2017 and 2018, the group performed its single “Black Swan” for the first time on the show in January. Last month, BTS also appeared on Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke.”
