We had a Diversity Milestone in Music Yesterday [View all]

The first non English song to debut @ #1 on Billboard, by BTS.
We progress in ways every day, so if the news gets you down, it's a nice story, and a feel good song.

"Life Goes On” marks the first song performed primarily in Korean to top the Hot 100 in the chart’s 62-year history, and the first non-English song in any language to debut atop the chart. The song’s accompanying album, BE, also bows atop the Billboard 200 this week, making BTS just the second artist in history behind Taylor Swift to simultaneously debut atop the Hot 100 and Billboard 200. (Swift did it earlier this year)..... Forbes article link beow video.

The Forbes article:

For Alicia Keys short english translated clip see below She gets me in the feels just speaking.

Finally, for anyone interested, BTS #1 from last month, a 70s inspired song played for NPR Tiny Desk Concert. 70s inspired clothing too. You can see their comraderie, and earnest nature come through. Well deserved.
