BTS creates history with Butter earning its 7th Consecutive Billboard Hot 100
There is a popular running joke amongst ARMY that ‘What Yoongi wants, Yoongi gets’, guess what? It isn’t a joke anymore. With their single Butter, BTS (RM, Suga, Jin, J-Hope, V, Jungkook, Jimin) has been making history and breaking records like never before. Billboard Hot 100 released their weekly list on Monday and BTS’ Butter managed to earn its 7th consecutive number 1 on the Hot 100 list. This is no small feat. Butter has extended its record as the longest-running #1 debut recorded by a single group in Hot 100 history. That’s not it.
Butter is also the eighth song in history to spend its first seven weeks on the Hot 100 at number 1. Bangtan Boys are here to create history and this is just the beginning. After Butter, BTS released another song titled Permission to Dance which is their second collaboration with Ed Sheeran after Make It Right. The song is a gift to ARMY as they ring their eighth anniversary. Permission to Dance is a happy song giving us an insight into the post-pandemic world as we cheer and dance to happy times awaiting.

Recently, BigHit released the Butter CD unboxing video of the members where Suga is seen casually saying that Butter will spend 7 weeks on the Hot 100 chart and that place will then be taken by PTD. Honestly, we already see that coming.
