BTS‘ “Dynamite” spends a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.

A week earlier, “Dynamite” debuted at the Hot 100’s summit, marking the group’s first No. 1 and the first leader on the list ever for an all-South Korean act.

Additionally this week, 24kGoldn‘s “Mood,” featuring iann dior, jumps from No. 12 to No. 8 on the Hot 100, becoming the first top 10 on the chart for each artist.

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated Sept. 12) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Sept. 9, a day later than usual due to the Labor Day holiday in the U.S. yesterday).

Helping “Dynamite” in its second week of availability, “Poolside” and “Tropical” remixes of the song were released Aug. 28 and sale-priced to 69 cents during the tracking week. They joined the original version, EDM and acoustic remixes and an instrumental version (also each sale-priced to 69 cents during the week), released Aug. 21.

With 182,000 downloads sold in its second week after opening with 265,000 downloads sold in its first frame, “Dynamite” is the first song to have sold over 180,000 downloads in consecutive weeks in nearly four years, since The Chainsmokers’ “Closer,” featuring Halsey (208,000, Sept. 17, 2016; 199,000, Sept. 24, 2016).

“Dynamite” is additionally the first song to have sold over 180,000 downloads in its first two weeks of release (unlike “Closer”) since Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” (379,000, May 28, 2016; 204,000, June 4, 2016).

Plus, on the mainstream top 40-based Pop Songs radio airplay chart, BTS hits a new career-best rank, as “Dynamite” rises 20-18. The track also becomes the group’s first entry on the adult top 40-based Adult Pop Songs airplay chart, where it debuts at No. 29.

“WAP” logs a fourth week at No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts, which employ the same multi-metric methodology as the Hot 100.

Drake’s “Laugh Now Cry Later,” featuring Lil Durk, holds at No. 3 on the Hot 100, after debuting at No. 2 two weeks earlier, and DaBaby’s seven-week leader “Rockstar,” featuring Roddy Ricch, is likewise steady at No. 4.

The Weeknd’s former four-week Hot 100 No. 1 “Blinding Lights” keeps at No. 5, as it spends a record-extending 22nd week at No. 1 on Radio Songs (79.6 million, down 1%). It rules the multi-metric Hot R&B Songs chart for a record-furthering 25th week.
