Congratulations on the historic achievement, BTS and ARMY!

BTS remains unbeatable on the global music scene as their latest song “Permission To Dance” takes over the No.1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

Wowing everyone with their incredible feats, the worldwide K-pop septet has been leading the chart for eight straight weeks now. The Hot 100 chart ranks the most popular songs in the United States across all genres based on streaming, radio airplay, and sales data.

“Permission To Dance,” which went straight to No. 1 in the first week of entry, inherited the baton of the digital single “Butter,” which held the top of the Hot 100 for seven consecutive weeks from June 5 to July 17.

Aside from topping the chart for the week ending on July 24 with “Permission To Dance,” BTS’ “Butter” also entered the Top 10 list at seventh place.

Citing MRC data, Billboard said, “‘Permission to Dance’ recorded 15.9 million streams and 140,000 downloads in the United States in the weekly count until July 15. Radio broadcast listeners were counted at 1.1 million.”

With the digital single “Dynamite” released in August last year, BTS became the first Korean singer to top Billboard’s Hot 100, writing a new history in the history of popular music and reaching the top of the glorious chart for the fifth time in just ten months and two weeks. It is the fastest time since Michael Jackson achieved the feat for nine months and two weeks from 1987 to 1988.

In addition, BTS became the fourth act to earn at least four No.1 debuts on the Hot 100. Ariana Grande obtained four while Justin Bieber and Drake got five each. The K-pop septet also made Billboard history as the fifth group to have replaced itself at the top of the chart. Moreover, they are the first group to pass the baton from their No.1 debut with another No.1 debut track.
