BTS Sugar, thank you for this. ARMY, thank you.
Hot 100 No. 1 Back to Baton Touch
BTS (BTS) Suga thanked Army, expressing surprise at the baton touch of “Butter” and “Permission to Dance.”
Suga told the fan community Weverse on the early morning of the 27th, “I just woke up and…Thank you so much for saying that. ARMY fans ㅠㅠㅠㅠ thank you and thank you. ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ” he wrote.
According to the U.S. Billboard Chart on the 26th (local time), Butter topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart on July 31. Butter, who had previously topped the Hot 100 list for seven consecutive weeks, set a total of eight weeks at the top of the Hot 100.
Butter’s eight-week hot 100 record is Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License,” which set the longest hot 100 record in 2021, and a tie record.
If Butter reaches the top of the Hot 100 for another week, he’ll be the longest hot 100 number of the year.
“Permission to Dance,” which won the first place in the first week of entry by pushing “Butter” last week, was ranked seventh in the “Hot 100” on July 31. According to Billboard, BTS is the first artist in Billboard’s history to reach the top of the previous No. 1 song without giving up the No. 1 spot to another artist.
