A week after logging their 12th career No. 1 on Billboard‘s World Digital Song Sales chart, BTS tallies a 13th on the ranking dated June 29, as the superstar K-pop group’s collaboration with Zara Larsson, “A Brand New Day,” debuts at No. 1 with 10,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen Music.

The group replaces itself at No. 1 yet again, as “Dream Glow,” with Charli XCX, debuted atop last week’s survey, while that track dethroned BTS’ previous chart-topper, “Boy With Luv” (featuring Halsey), which debuted at No. 1 on April 27 and spent eight weeks at No. 1.


BLACKPINK boasts the second-most No. 1s on the chart (five), followed by BIGBANG and PSY (four each) and EXO (three).

Here’s an updated look at all 12 of BTS’ No. 1 hits on the World Digital Song Sales chart, listed chronologically:
