BTS’s “Dynamite” Makes History On Billboard’s Hot 100 And Pop Songs Radio Airplay Chart
Billboard has now announced its charts for the week ending November 14. “Dynamite” grabs No. 16 in its 11th week on the Hot 100 chart, which ranks the most popular songs in the United States across all genres. The English-language single, which came out on August 21, made history when it debuted at the top of the chart and it has spent three non-consecutive weeks in No. 1 over its run.
“Dynamite” has therefore now become BTS’s longest-running song on the Hot 100, setting a new record for tracks by all-South Korean groups. The previous record was the 10 weeks achieved by BTS’s 2017 “MIC Drop” remix.
Meanwhile, “Dynamite” continues to show its popularity on the airwaves with its success on the Pop Songs radio airplay chart. The ranking measures total weekly plays on approximately 160 mainstream top 40 radio stations.
Last week, BTS took No. 9 on the Pop Songs chart and surpassed the No. 10 peak reached by PSY’s “Gangnam Style” in October 2012. This week, they’ve extended their record as “Dynamite” maintains No. 9, becoming the first song by an all-South Korean act to grab the No. 9 spot for two weeks.
“Dynamite” also reclaims No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart after dipping to No. 3 last week.
The song takes No. 4 on the Global 200 chart and No. 3 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart. BTS is also No. 4 on the Artist 100 chart and remains No. 1 on the Social 50 chart, extending their record for most nonconsecutive weeks at the top of the chart to 204.
The group is currently getting ready to release their new album “BE” on November 20. Check out the track list here!
