It now spends its eighth week on top
There’s really no stopping BTS. With the resurgence of “Butter,” the summer anthem makes it on top of the Billboard Hot 100 once again after staying at the No. 7 position a week before. “Butter” switches with “Permission to Dance,” the latest song to command No. 1, as shown on the Billboard chart dated July 31, 2021.
From No. 2 to 5, Hot 100 includes “Good 4 U” by Olivia Rodrigo, “Levitating” by Dua Lipa featuring DaBaby, “Stay” by The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber, “Kiss Me More” by Doja Cat featuring Sza, respectively. “Permission to Dance” falls to No. 7.
According to Billboard, the song now matches Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” with the longest reign on the charts for this year. Furthermore, Billboard states: “‘Butter,’ released on HYBE/BigHit Music/Columbia Records, drew 30.7 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 2 percent) and 8.8 million U.S. streams (down 21 percent) in the week ending July 22, according to MRC Data.”
