SEOUL – July 13, 2021 – BTS, the pop icons of this century, extend their reign on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “Butter” remaining at the summit for 7 consecutive weeks. The song is also No.10 on the Pop Airplay chart, their second song so far to enter the top 10. This makes them the first Korean act to have multiple entries in the top 10 on the Pop Airplay chart.
