Their latest English-language single becomes BTS' fourth No. 1 in nine months, marking any act's quickest accumulation of its first four Hot 100 chart-toppers since Justin Timberlake a decade and a half ago, and among groups, the fastest since the Jackson 5 in 1970. "Butter" also glides in atop both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts, starting with the highest weekly worldwide streams and sales since both tallies launched last September.
"Aaaaaaaaaak! Thank you ARMY!!" read a fan translation of BTS' message under the Billboard chart graphic before the boy band shared another tweet that celebrated going "#1."
