K-pop superstars BTS’ “Butter” grabbed the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Digital Song Sales for 13th week.

Billboard reported that for the Sept. 4-dated chart, “Butter” reigned on top of Digital Song Sales with sales of 68,800, an increase of 25 percent from last week’s sales of 55,000, and became the chart’s top Sales Gainer.

On the Hot 100 chart, “Butter” landed at No. 7, up from No. 8 last week. The Billboard Hot 100 chart is based on US streaming (official audio and video), radio airplay and sales.

“Butter” became No. 1 on the Hot 100 for nine weeks to become the longest reigning song on top of the chart in 2021 to date while “Permission to Dance” topped the chart for one week. This is the 14th straight week that BTS landed in the top 10 of the Hot 100.

On the Billboard Global Excl. US chart, “Permission to Dance” and “Butter” landed on the eighth and ninth places for the Sept. 4-dated chart.

Last Aug. 27, BTS released the remix “Butter (feat. Megan Thee Stallion).” It became a reality after Megan Thee Stallion successfully obtained a temporary restraining order from a Texas court against her label.

“I love BTS so I’m super excited to be on the ‘Butter’ remix. I can’t wait for all the Hotties and ARMY to hear it,” said Megan Thee Stallion, according to Hybe.

According to Twitter account @chartdata, the BTS and Megan Thee Stallion collaboration earned “the biggest first day streams for a remix on the Spotify counter” and added that “Butter” “now sold over 2.5 million units in the US.”

The official visualizer video for “Butter (feat. Megan Thee Stallion)” has garnered 26.4 million views on YouTube.
