It’s no secret that BTS were the most successful music group in 2021. Their track “Butter” was so popular that it even passed Olivia Rodrigo’s “Driver’s License” to become the longest-running No. 1 track of the year. Thanks to their achievements, BTS will not only be included in the upcoming Guinness World Records book, but they have also landed a spot in the 2022 World Records Hall Of Fame.

Guinness had previously hinted at BTS inclusion in this year’s World Records book, but they announced this week that the K-pop group will be inducted into the Guinness World Records Hall Of Fame thanks to breaking ten world records in 2021. “I’m here with some news about everyone’s favorite Bangtan Boys, BTS,” they announced in the video. “The boys, as your probably well-aware, have loads of Guinness World Record titles, and I’m here to officially announce that they’re in the hall of fame for Guinness World Records 2022.”
