Ever since BIGBANG members woke up from their three-year slumber and came out with an album, their fans have been ecstatic. Their latest album, MADE, has experienced resounding success, with songs from the album winning several music competitions at home. The latest news suggests that their hit song, "BANG BANG BANG" has made its way to the Billboard's World Digital Songs and has secured the number three spot on the list for the week of 17 October. 

Kpopstarz reported that the song has been listed on the Billboard chart for 18 weeks.

Perhaps this sudden rise has something to do with the band's MADE World Tour. BIGBANG members are currently touring in the US and so far, have been received with warmth and support from their fandom abroad. A recent blog post by YG Entertainment stated that the tickets for BIGBANG's North America tour have been sold out.

The blog further stated, "BIGBANG sang the songs of their "MADE" series albums such as "BANG BANG BANG", "IF You", and "Loser" as well as their old hit songs "Bad Boy" and "Fantastic Boy."

The band is scheduled to perform in New Jersey on 10 and 11 October and in Toronto, Canada on 13 October.

We had reported earlier that BIGBANG member, Seungri courted trouble during the band's recent performance in Taipei, Taiwan. The singer was spotted with a mystery woman at 1am in a club. Later on, YG Entertainment issued a statement that Seungri did not leave the club with the woman, who was identified as Maggie Mong.
