As "Permission to Dance" debuts atop the Hot 100, "Butter" continues at No. 1 on Songs of the Summer.
As BTS' new single "Permission to Dance" soars in at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, the South Korean superstars' previous release "Butter" holds atop Billboard's Songs of the Summer chart (dated July 24).
Such a double coronation is rare: No act had led the Hot 100 and Songs of the Summer surveys with different songs simultaneously in nearly 11 years. On the last Songs of the Summer chart of 2010 (dated that Sept. 18), Katy Perry's "California Gurls," featuring Snoop Dogg, secured the crown as that summer's top song as follow-up single "Teenage Dream," the title track from her historic 2010 album, took over at No. 1 on the Hot 100.
