BTS' 'Butter' Tops Hot 100 for Sixth Week, Ed Sheeran's 'Bad Habits' Debuts at No. 5

Sheeran scores his eighth top 10.

BTS' "Butter" churns out its sixth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, encompassing its entire run on the ranking so far, dating to its debut at the apex.

Plus, Doja Cat's "Kiss Me More," featuring SZA, hits a new Hot 100 high at No. 3 and Ed Sheeran soars in at No. 5 with his new single, "Bad Habits," which arrives as his eighth career top 10.

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated July 10) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (July 7, a day later than usual due to the post-July 4 Monday holiday in the U.S.) For all chart news, you can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.

"Butter," released on HYBE/BigHit Music/Columbia Records, drew 11 million U.S. streams, down 11%, and sold 153,600 (downloads, cassette and vinyl combined), up 20%, in the week ending July 1, according to MRC Data. It also attracted 28.3 million radio airplay audience impressions, up 2%, in the week ending July 4.

The track adds a sixth week atop the Digital Song Sales chart, while backtracking 22-23 on Radio Songs and 18-31 on Streaming Songs.

Sales for "Butter" in its sixth week reflect availability for its original and instrumental versions released May 21; a "Hotter" remix released May 28; "Cooler" and "Sweeter" remixes released June 4; an "alternate single cover" digital single released June 24 in the group's webstore, with all discounted to 69 cents throughout their availability; and two other versions on sale via BTS' U.S. webstore (a 7-inch vinyl single, for $7.98, and a cassette single, for $6.98) which count for the first time on this week's charts, dated July 10, a week later than originally expected due to a shift in their shipping schedules (sparking the song's top Sales Gainer award on the Hot 100, which it claims for a second consecutive week).

Rodrigo's "Good 4 U" holds at No. 2 on the Hot 100, six weeks after it debuted at No. 1. It posts a seventh week atop Streaming Songs (30.2 million, down 6%); keeps at No. 5 on Digital Song Sales (9,500, up 3%); and lifts 7-6 on Radio Songs with 56.8 million impressions, up 19%, as it wins the Hot 100's top Airplay Gainer award for a fifth week.

Doja Cat's "Kiss Me More," featuring SZA, rises to a new No. 3 Hot 100 high, from No. 4. The song is from Doja Cat's new LP Planet Her, which launches as her first No. 1 on Top R&B Albums and at No. 2, a new career best, on both the all-genre Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.

Concurrently, "Kiss" hits No. 1 on the mainstream top 40 radio-based Pop Airplay chart, becoming Doja Cat's second leader, after "Say So" reigned for six weeks in May-June 2020. It's SZA's first Pop Airplay No. 1. (The song is the first to top Pop Airplay by two solo women since Ariana Grande's "Side to Side," featuring Nicki Minaj, in 2016-17.) On the all-format Radio Songs chart, "Kiss" climbs 4-2 (70.7 million, up 5%).

Dua Lipa's "Levitating," featuring DaBaby, dips 3-4 on the Hot 100, after reaching No. 2, as it logs a second week at No. 1 on Radio Songs (80.6 million, essentially even week-over-week).

Ed Sheeran bounds onto the Hot 100 at No. 5 with "Bad Habits." Released June 25, the single starts with 38.8 million airplay audience impressions, 17.7 million streams and 33,200 sold. It opens at No. 2 on Digital Song Sales and No. 6 on Streaming Songs, and blasts 36-11 on Radio Songs.

The song enters the Hot 100 as Sheeran's eighth top 10 (a sum that includes two No. 1s) and first since "I Don't Care," with Justin Bieber, reached No. 2 in 2019. He first hit the top 10 with the No. 9-peaking "Don't" in 2014.

As Sheeran promoted "Habits" with a week-long residency on CBS' The Late Late Show With James Corden, among other media stops, the song was available in its first sales tracking week as a digital download for its original version and a "voice note acoustic" version, each for 69 cents, and via two CD singles in Sheeran's U.S. webstore: a "limited edition" option for $2.50 and one with "digitally animated" cover art for $5.

On Pop Airplay, "Habits" roars 23-10 in its second week on the chart, tying 13 other songs for the fastest flight to the top 10, dating to the list's 1992 inception. (It's only the second by a lead solo male, after Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling" in 2016.) The track also charges 21-13 on Adult Pop Airplay and debuts at No. 15, marking Sheeran's best career entrance, on Adult Contemporary.

"Leave the Door Open" by Silk Sonic, the duo of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, is steady at No. 6 on the Hot 100, after two nonconsecutive weeks on top. It rebounds for a 12th week at No. 1 on Hot R&B Songs and a seventh frame atop Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, with both multi-metric charts employing the same methodology as the Hot 100.

Three more prior No. 1s follow in the Hot 100's top 10: Bieber's former one-week leader "Peaches," featuring Daniel Caesar and Giveon, falls 5-7; Lil Nas X's fellow former one-week topper "Montero (Call Me by Your Name)" holds at No. 8; and The Weeknd and Ariana Grande's "Save Your Tears" slips 7-9, after two weeks at No. 1.

Rounding out the Hot 100's top 10, Olivia Rodrigo's "Deja Vu" drops 9-10, after reaching No. 3.
