BTS’s latest single, “Butter,” has made music history for the South Korean band. “Butter” has debuted at the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts, making it the group’s fourth No. 1 song in the past nine months. “Butter” topping this week’s chart comes exactly nine months after their first No. 1 single, “Dynamite,” hit the top spot on September 5, 2020.
The No. 1 debut of “Butter” also means that BTS has achieved the quickest journey to four No. 1 singles among groups since the Jackson 5 did so back in 1970. It also makes BTS just one of a handful of artists to achieve their first four No. 1 singles in under a year, joining The Beatles, The Supremes, Justin Timberlake, the Jackson 5, Mariah Carey, and Paula Abdul.
