BTS is back at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 this week!
On September 7, local time, Billboard officially announced that BTS smash hit “Butter” had returned to number 1 on its famous Hot 100 chart (its weekly ranking of the most popular songs in the United States).
“Butter,” which overtook Dynamite last week and became the longest-running top 10 hit by a Korean act on the Hot 100, jumped after the release of its new remix with Megan. from number 7 to the top of this week’s charts Dir Hengst.
The latest charts mark the song’s 10th non-consecutive week at # 1, making it only the 40th single in the Hot 100’s 63-year history to have spent 10 or more weeks at the top of the charts.
As summer draws to a close, Butter also landed # 1 on Billboard’s annual Songs of the Summer charts for 2021, ending a perfect run of topping every single weekly chart this summer. (Every year, Billboard updates its running list of the summer’s most popular tracks every week from Memorial Day through Labor Day – and “Butter” never missed the top spot.)

Additionally, “Butter” topped Billboard’s digital song sales chart this week, marking its 14th week at # 1 as the best-selling song of the week. According to MRC Data (formerly Nielsen Music), in the week ending September 2, the song garnered 12.2 million radio airplay viewer impressions, 10.7 million streams and sold 143,000 downloads.
Eventually, “Butter” returned to number 35 on the Billboard streaming songs chart.
While Billboard didn’t score Megan Thee Stallion on the Hot 100 or the Digital Song Sales Charts (as the original song from BTS and other remixes outperformed their new remix in sales and overall metrics), BTS and Big Hit Music made sure they got the Rappers showed love for Americans by mentioning them in their official tweets about their latest achievement.
