'Permission To Dance' Replaces BTS' Own No. 1 Debut on Hot 100, Taking Over Seven-Week Streak of 'Butter'
The Bangtan Boys are the first group to do this, continuing their hot streak as 'Permission To Dance' replaces 'Butter' at the top of the Billboard charts!
ARMY, have you heard? "Butter" has officially handed the baton to "Permission to Dance" which debuted on No. 1 on the Hot 100, Billboard's weekly ranking of the most popular songs in the United States. "Permission to Dance" takes over "Butter", which held the top spot for a record-breaking seven straight weeks!
Moreover, “Permission to Dance” is BTS’s fifth song to hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 (after “Dynamite,” “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)” with Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo, “Life Goes On,” and “Butter”). In just ten months, BTS accomplished five No. 1 hits, which is the fastest time since Michael Jackson did so within nine months in 1987-88!
According to Billboard, BTS is the fourth act with at least four No. 1 debuts on the Hot 100, after Ariana Grande (with five), Justin Bieber (with four), and Drake (with four, as well). BTS is also the first act to replace themselves at No. 1 on the Hot 100 since Drake did in three years ago. BTS is the fifth group in historyto have replaced itself at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, and the first group to have replaced their own No. 1 debut with another No. 1 debut!
A big congratulations to BTS and ARMY for this amazing achievement!
