                  BTS’s delicious new single “Butter” has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 one again. The K-pop kings — Jungkook, J-Hope, RM, V, Suga, Jimin, and Jin — have now earned four No. 1 singles on the chart, achieving the fastest accumulation of hits for a group since the Jackson 5 in 1970 and becoming the first band in history to have three No. 1 debuts on the Hot 100. Olivia Rodrigo also makes history as the first artist to simultaneously chart three top-ten songs from a debut album: “good 4 u,” which was bumped to No. 2, “deja vu” at No. 3, and new entry “traitor” at No. 9. Her album Sour topped the Billboard 200 this week with the biggest week of any 2021 album so far. The rest of the top ten includes “Levitating,” by Dua Lipa, down to No. 4, Silk Sonic’s “Leave the Door Open” down to No. 5, “Peaches,” by Justin Bieber featuring Giveon and Daniel Caesar, at No. 6, “Save Your Tears,” by the Weeknd and Ariana Grande, chilling at No. 7, “Kiss Me More,” by Doja Cat featuring SZA, at No. 8, and “Astronaut in the Ocean,” by Masked Wolf, at No. 10.

                  “We released ‘Butter’ to bring a fun song that anyone can enjoy,” said BTS in a press release. “We’re happy and honored that the song reached No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 again. We wouldn’t have gotten our fourth chart topping song without everyone’s love and support. Thank you for enjoying ‘Butter’ and we will keep working hard to deliver refreshing and passionate music.” BTS’s milestone comes at the start of their eighth-anniversary celebration, Festa, a multiday event filled with bonus content. Congratulations to the BTS Army, who never stop winning.
