Plus, EST Gee debuts.
BTS spends a 19th week atop the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated Aug. 7), extending the South Korean septet's record for the most weeks at No. 1 among duos or groups since the chart began in 2014, thanks to the continued success of the act's hit singles "Butter" and "Permission to Dance."
"Butter" leads the Billboard Hot 100 for a ninth week, surpassing Olivia Rodrigo's "Drivers License" for the longest-reigning No. 1 of 2021. "Permission to Dance" ranks at No. 9 after debuting atop the chart two weeks earlier.
Dating to the Artist 100's launch, only three other acts have spent more time at No. 1 than BTS: Taylor Swift (48 weeks), Drake (32) and The Weeknd (22).
