BTS's "Butter" spends another week as number 1 on Billboard HOT 100. The global boy group's hit song is now the longest leading hit of 2021, beating out the eight-week record of Olivia Rodrigo's "Drivers License."

According to Billboard, "'Butter,' released on HYBE/BigHit Music/Columbia Records, drew 30.5 million radio airplay audience impressions (down 1%) and 8.1 million U.S. streams (down 8%) in the week ending July 29, according to MRC Data."

Just last week, "Butter" replaced BTS' other track, "Permission to Dance," which debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100 a week earlier. BTS's "Butter" is now on its ninth week as number 1 on the top music chart in the U.S.

With this, BTS has now topped Billboard's HOT 100 for the 15th time since last year's "Dynamite."

Congrats BTS! Over here in the US we're still jamming out! Even though 'Permission to Dance' wasn't as popular I'm glad to see it hanging in the top 10 another week since I know how much the boys enjoyed recording it! The party continues ARMY!
