CARATs, today SEVENTEEN has hit a huge milestone for any K-Pop act!
As of today, September 25, the boy group has reached 1 billion streams on Spotify!
This record has only been accomplished by 2 K-Pop boy groups before them — BTS and EXO — making SEVENTEEN the third boy group to achieve this milestone.
They’re also just the 6th of any Korean act to reach 1 billion streams, due to BLACKPINK, TWICE, and Red Velvet also hitting this number before them.
Let’s be proud that Seventeen surpassed 1Billion stream in Spotify and are the 6th Korean Act and 3rd Kpop Boy Group reach this milestone.

2020 has been a really successful year for SEVENTEEN. Just weeks ago, they became the third international artist to have 4 different albums reach #1 on Japan’s Oricon charts, which had only been done by TWICE and Mariah Carey before them.
Earlier this month, it was also announced that they were the first K-Pop artist to receive the Million Plaque Certification by Hanteo Charts after their latest Korean album, Heng:garae, sold over 1 million copies in its first week.
Fans are celebrating these successes on Twitter with trending hashtags such as #Seventeen1BillionOnSpotify, #SEVENTEENCLAP_80M, and of course, #SEVENTEEN.
