With this record, the song expanded its record as the longest-running No.1 reached by any Asian act. It also continues to be hailed as the song with the longest No.1 streak starting from its debut on Hot 100 by any group since 1995.
In addition, “Butter” became this week’s top-selling song, winning over Aaron Lewis’ “Am I The Only One,” Walker Hayes’ “Fancy Like,” Ed Sheeran’s “Bad Habits,” and Toby Keith’s “Happy Birthday America.”
