BTS makes a smooth takeover on the global music charts!

Showing their unrivaled power in the worldwide music scene, BTS has conquered Billboard once again with their latest English digital single “Butter.”

Just recently, Billboard announced that “Butter” debuted at No.1 on its glorious Hot 100 chart. It ranks the most popular songs in the United States across all genres based on streaming, radio airplay, and sales data.

“Butter” is now the septet’s fourth song to score the No.1 spot on the Hot 100 chart. Last year, the group impressively topped the chart with their record-breaking tracks “Dynamite,” “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)” in collaboration with Jason Derulo and Jawsh 685, and “Life Goes On.”

According to Billboard, BTS has also made history as the first group in the world to have three songs (“Dynamite,” remix of “Savage Love,” and “Butter”) debuted at No.1 on Hot 100. The only artists who surpassed the amazing record are Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and Drake.

Remarkably,  RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook achieved their four No.1s on Hot 100 in just nine months, from charts dated September 5, 2020, through June 5, 2021. This is the fastest record ever since Justin Timberlake earned the honor over seven months and two weeks back in 2006 to 2007. Among groups, BTS is also the fastest to hit the milestone since the Jackson 5 in 1970.

The latest hit smash of BTS has already recorded 32.2 million streams and 242,800 downloads in the United States in its first week. In addition, as of May 30, the number of radio broadcast listeners reached 18.1 million.

Aside from dominating the Hot 100 chart, “Butter” likewise topped Billboard’s Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. charts. The song obtained the highest weekly worldwide streams and sales since the charts’ launch last year.

Grateful for the recognition, BTS said, “‘Butter’ is a song we made this summer with the thought that it would be nice if there was a song that everyone would enjoy. I think that we were able to receive the glorious title of No.1 for the fourth time on Billboard’s Hot 100 because of your love and support. Thank you to everyone.”

The boys continued, “If you recharge your energy while listening to ‘Butter’, I don’t think there is a better gift for us than that. We sincerely thank everyone who loved our latest song, and we always strive to deliver hot, sweet, and cool music. We will become a BTS that does this.”
