BTS's 'Butter' stays atop Billboard singles chart for 4th consecutive week
BTS’s second English single “Butter” topped the Billboard singles chart for four consecutive weeks, surpassing their own record that they set with “Dynamite” (2020).
Last year, their first English song “Dynamite” topped the Hot 100 chart for three weeks, which was the longest amount of time the band has ever been able to keep their ranking at the top.
“Butter” already surpassed the record of “Dynamite” last week after topping the chart for three consecutive weeks. “Dynamite” ranked No. 1 on the chart for the first two weeks and dropped to No. 2 for two weeks after that, and then again resurfaced as No. 1 in the week after.
Overall, there have been only 54 songs that shot to the top of the Hot 100 right after their release, and only 13 songs that were able to keep their place for four consecutive weeks.
Through the official BTS twitter account, members wrote, “Unbelievable! BTS’s ‘Butter’ is on the top of the chart 4 weeks in a row! Thanks so much BTS ARMY,” expressing their gratitude towards their fans.
