BTS continues winning streak on Billboard Hot 100 for 3rd week
According to Billboard, "Dynamite" continued to dominate digital song sales with 136,000 downloads in the third week of its release, becoming the first track to do so since "Closer" by The Chainsmokers in 2016.
The English-language single released on Aug. 21 topped the Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart for two consecutive weeks, becoming the 20th song to have remained on top for two weeks following a No. 1 debut, according to Billboard.
BTS placed second on Billboard’s two new charts — Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts, which rank worldwide songs based on Nielsen Music data’s streaming and sales in more than 200 regions.
"Dynamite” also debuted at No. 1 on Spotify’s daily Global Top 50 chart after the release, which sits on No. 4 on the chart as of Sept. 13.
BTS will perform on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” on Sept. 17 and at the “iHeartRadio Music Festival” on Sept. 19.
