BTS leads for an 18th week.
BTS extends its record for the most weeks spent at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart among duos/groups, as the South Korean superstars tally an 18th week as the top musical act in the U.S. (on the chart dated July 31).
BTS holds at No. 1 thanks largely to its singles "Butter" and "Permission to Dance," as the former returns to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for an eighth week at No. 1, while the latter falls to No. 7 after debuting atop the ranking a week earlier. Notably, "Butter" ties Olivia Rodrigo's "Drivers License" as the longest leading No. 1 this year.
