'Smooth like Butter' indeed! In a classic, BTS versus BTS, 'Butter' claimed the number one spot on Billboard Hot 100 chart yet again, taking the baton from the group's 'wild-west' themed dance song 'Permission To Dance'. Last week, the global septet made history by replacing themselves at the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100, when 'Permission To Dance' dethroned Butter from its successful seven-week run! 

As of now, 'Butter' has conquered the Billboard Hot 100 chart for eight weeks and is now tied with Olivia Rodrigo‘s 'Drivers License' for the longest-running number-one song of 2021 so far. Billboard also reported that BTS is now the first act to replace itself at number one spot with a new leader and then send the previous number one back to the top with no other acts holding the top spot in between! Now, that's some record!
