BTS’s second English song, “Butter,” has set the new record as it had topped the Billboard singles charts for four consecutive weeks.
On September 21st (local time), Billboard announced, “BTS’ “Butter” adds a fourth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, becoming the South Korean superstar group’s longest leading topper on the tally.”
With this, BTS now has the longest-running No. 1 hit by any Asian act. Previously, a Japanese musician Sakamoto Kyu had topped the chart for three straight weeks with his song “Sukiyaki.”
According to Billboards, “Butter” is the 54th song that debuted at the summit and spent its first four weeks at NO.1 on the Hot 100. As a group singer, it has been 23 years to achieve such a feat since Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” in 1998.
Immediately after the announcement on 22nd, BTS said, “Unbelievable! #BTS_Butter is on the top of the chart four weeks in a row! Thanks soooo-much, #BTSARMY,” on their official Twitter account.
Also, Hive shared,” thank you for your love toward BTS from the bottom of our heart.”
