BTS extends its record for the most weeks on top among duos/groups.
BTS bounds 7-1 on the latest Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Sept. 5) to become the top musical act in the U.S. for a seventh total week, and for the first time since March, thanks to the group's new single "Dynamite."
The song launches at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, as BTS earns its first leader on the list and becomes the first all-South Korean group ever to top the chart. The track opens with 33.9 million U.S. streams and 300,000 sold in the week ending Aug. 27, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It also drew 11.6 million radio airplay audience impressions in the week ending Aug. 30.
With its seventh week at No. 1, BTS ties Bruno Mars for the 10th-most total time atop the Artist 100. Taylor Swift has spent the most weeks at No. 1, with 41, followed by Drake (31) and The Weeknd (20).
