BTS joins the exclusive club thanks to 'Savage Love' and 'Dynamite.'

As previously reported, Jawsh 685, Jason Derulo and BTS' "Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)" blasts to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, while BTS' "Dynamite" holds at No. 2, after spending three weeks on top.

With "Savage Love" at No. 1 and "Dynamite" at No. 2 on the Hot 100, BTS is the first group to monopolize the chart's top two simultaneously since The Black Eyed Peas, who did so for four weeks in 2009 with "Boom Boom Pow" and "I Gotta Feeling." Only three other duos or groups have earned the honor: OutKast, Bee Gees and The Beatles.

Here's a recap of how each duo or group (among 21 total acts that have accomplished the feat, including soloists) has doubled up at Nos. 1 and 2.
