BTS’s “Butter” and the new record it holds!
BTS’s single is so smooth, and now the group’s longest-running song on the BB Hot 100 at No.1.
Upon the song’s premiere last May 21st, it immediately skyrocketed to the No.1 spot for the weekly chart released on June 5th.
“Butter” has officially broken their previous record. “Dynamite,” which the group released back in 2020, charted at the Billboard Hot 100 three times at No.1.
What’s more, it is currently the record-holder to reach the peak of BB Hot 100 by any Asian act!
History in the making.
Although many songs did take the No1 spot throughout Billboard’s history, only a few singles enjoyed four consecutive weeks on the chart. In truth, BTS’s recent single is among those songs.
According to the data, “Butter” acquired an astounding number of 12.5 million streams and 111,400 downloads in the U.S. The radio airplay numbers are a massive 25.8 million and have attained an impressive audience impression of up to 6%!
