‘Dynamite’ sets the longest stay on Billboard Hot 100

The digital single “Dynamite” by K-pop megastar BTS has made history as the longest-charting song by a Korean act on the Hot 100 singles chart of the U.S.-based Billboard.


In the latest update of the rankings on April 5, “Dynamite” finished 30th for its 32nd consecutive week on the chart since debuting at No. 1 on the chart in August last year. The hit eclipsed the previous mark of 31 weeks set by Psy’s “Gangnam Style” in 2012.

Billboard removes a descending song from the Hot 100 after 20 weeks and if the tune’s rank falls below 50th. Since “Dynamite” came out on Aug. 21 last year at No. 1, the song is the first by a Korean act to not fall out of the top 50.

“Dynamite” also set a Billboard record by topping the digital song sales chart for the 18th week in a row based on the number of downloads, breaking the previous mark of 17 weeks held by “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber.


Billboard quoted MRC, a company that analyzes album sales, as saying “Dynamite” has seen 1.5 million downloads since its release.
