You can 'Shazam' BTS' songs anywhere you hear them around the world!
It is not a streaming platform. Shazam's data is shared across radio stations in order to determine what songs are topping the Shazam Global/Country charts or those that are increasing in popularity. This will also allow radio stations to add the most popular songs on rotation - so we can help make BTS' tracks be heard on radio more often!
24 hours: 250K
Global | Week 1: 450K-500K, Top 10
Global | Week 2-4: 100K Shazams per week, Top 20
