BTS rebounded for a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with their first-ever English song “Dynamite.”
According to Billboard, “Dynamite” climbed back to the No. 1 spot after “debuting at No.1 on Hot 100 dated Sept. 5 and remained atop the Sept. 12 chart.”
They also added that the song “returned to No. 1 from the runner-up spot on the strength of 14 million U.S. streams (up 11%) and 153,000 downloads sold (up 96%) in the week ending Sept. 24, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It also drew 20.8 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 8%) in the week ending Sept. 27.”
This is the first time in nearly two years that a duo or group’s song has topped the Hot 100 chart more than three times since Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You,” which dominated the chart for seven weeks in September-November 2018.
Moreover, “Dynamite” became the first song to top Digital Song Sales for five weeks since Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts,” which led for five nonconsecutive frames back in 2019.
Meanwhile, BTS will release their new album BE (Deluxe Edition) on Nov. 20 and take over The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for a solid week starting on Sept. 28.
