BTS Makes History As “Dynamite” Reclaims No. 1 Spot On Billboard’s Hot 100
BTS’s “Dynamite” soars back to the top of the Hot 100!
Billboard has announced that “Dynamite” rises back to No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart dated October 3. The Hot 100 ranks the most popular songs in the United States across all genres based on streaming, radio airplay, and sales data.
BTS previously became the first all-South Korean act to grab No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart when “Dynamite” debuted at the top, and it remained there for a second week before spending the two following weeks at No. 2. They’ve now extended their history-making No. 1 record to three weeks in total!

Billboard notes that 52 percent of the song’s overall sales from the week ending September 24 were of its four new “NightTime” remixes (Bedroom, Midnight, Retro, and Slow Jam), which came out on September 18.
Meanwhile, “Dynamite” spends a fifth consecutive week at No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart, and it also soars from No. 17 to No. 12 on the Streaming Songs chart.
