The night before, the seven-member group dropped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and performed the song once again. “Idol,” which has a remix featuring Nicki Minaj, combines traditional Koreans rhythms layered over South African beats.

This release marked their second No.1 on the US charts. Their previous album, Love Yourself: Tear, dropped back in May and it became the 1st K-pop album to debut at the top of the US charts. It was also the highest-charting album by an Asian act.

BTS is slated to spend the weekend at the Prudential Center — performing the record-setting album live in front of two sold out crowds on Friday and Saturday. Their Newark performances will then be followed by an even larger performance at New York’s Citi Field on October 6, a show that sold out in 20 minutes!

And though the members (whose ages ranges from 20-25) are currently at the top of their game when it comes to music, that’s not the only thing they are passionate about. The group are currently Goodwill Ambassadors for the UN and have done an incredible amount of working with UNICEF.

Their charity efforts are what lead to them being invited to the UN for the launch of UNICEF’s new global initiative, Generation Unlimited, which is geared towards encouraging young people. BTS leading group member RM took to the podium and gave a rousing speech (in fluent English) urging the world’s youth to practice self-acceptance and self-love.
