With the news that BTS is prepping the release of a brand-new English-language single, "Butter," pop fans are waiting with bated breath for new music from the seven-piece boy band. Just last year, BTS' first English-language single, "Dynamite," became their first Billboard Hot 100 topper -- and one of the defining smashes of the year.
Thanks to the success of BTS, Blackpink and other groups, K-pop groups continue to dominate the global music market, but it's also becoming increasingly popular on the Billboard charts. As they find success Stateside, many K-pop groups and artists have taken to recording English versions of their songs -- and in some cases, even releasing full English-language studio sets.
As one of the first K-pop groups to make significant inroads with a U.S. audience, Girls' Generation made their American debut with an English-language version of their hit single "The Boys" in Dec. 2011. With a declaration of "Girls' Generation make you feel the heat/ And we're doin' it, we can't be beat!" the nine-piece hit No. 5 on the Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart with the track. (The album of the same name also earned the girl group their first entry on the World Albums chart, bowing at No. 2.)
