BTS’s “Butter” Tops Billboard Hot 100 For A Record-Breaking 5th Consecutive Week

BTS and their fans, ARMY, have done it again!

On June 28 local time, Billboard announced that BTS’s “Butter” had taken No. 1 on the Hot 100, its weekly ranking of the most popular songs in the United States, for the fifth consecutive week. “Butter” also topped the list for top-selling songs of the week.

BTS set the record for the longest-running No. 1 hit by any Asian act when it topped the Hot 100 for the fourth consecutive time last week. This week’s fifth consecutive No. 1 extends that record. Billboard’s Gary Trust writes, “Only one song by a group has topped the Hot 100 for more weeks from its debut than ‘Butter’: Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s ‘One Sweet Day,’ which spent its first 16 weeks on the chart at No. 1 in 1995-96.”

Billboard shared that “Butter” garnered 12.4 million U.S. streams and 128,400 downloads (a 15 percent increase) for the week ending on June 24, as well as 27.6 million radio airplay audience impressions (a 6 percent increase) in the week ending on June 27. Billboard also stated that “Butter” had sold at least 100,000 downloads in each of its first five weeks, the first song to do so since “Despacito” in 2017.

According to Billboard, “Butter” is just the 11th song out of the 54 songs that have debuted at No. 1 to spend its first five weeks at No. 1 in the history of the Hot 100. Of the 1,125 songs that have hit No. 1 in the history of the Hot 100, “Butter” is the 196th to spend at least five weeks at the top.

“Butter” also took No. 1 on Billboard’s Global Excl. U.S. chart and No. 2 on the Global 200 chart again this week. The song also topped the Digital Song Sales chart again and ranked No. 18 on the Streaming Songs chart and No. 22 on the Radio Songs chart.

This week’s Hot 100 is for the week dated July 3. The full charts will update on Billboard on June 29 local time.

Congratulations to BTS!
