BTS 1st place for 5 consecutive weeks

BTS topped the U.S. Billboard single chart for the fifth consecutive week with “Butter.”

Billboard said on the 28th (local time) that BTS’s “Butter” topped the main single chart, the “Hot 100,” on July 3.

BTS topped the chart on June 5, followed by the chart on July 12, 19, and 26 for five consecutive weeks until July 3. It is a new record that surpassed the Billboard “Hot 100” record set last week for the fourth consecutive week and the first record set by an Asian singer on the chart.

BTS’s “Butter” and “Dynamite” are breaking their own best records, surpassing Japanese singer Sagamoto Kyu’s “Sukiyaki,” which ranked first in the Hot 100 for three consecutive weeks in 1963.

Billboard said it was the first time since British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” in 2017 that it has sold more than 100,000 per share for five consecutive weeks since its release. With overwhelming sales, BTS also topped the digital song sales chart for the fifth consecutive week.

BTS Suga said on Weverse, a fan community, “It’s worth not sleeping for five consecutive weeks. Five weeks is a bit scary and I’m glad. “I love you, ARMY. Thank you so much. Let’s have fun.” “Thank you so much for being number one for five weeks. Thanks to ARMY, I’m experiencing amazing things. “I love you.”

BTS is also announcing the release of a CD with additional new songs along with “Butter” on the 9th. Expectations are high as Ed Sheeran, who collaborated with “Make It Right” in 2019, participated in the new song.
