AceShowbiz - BTS (Bangtan Boys) are still spreading the love with hit single "Butter" for a fifth week at the top of the U.S. pop charts.
The track debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 last month (May 2021), and no one has been able to shift it.
"Butter" is just the 11th track to spend at least its first five weeks on the chart at number one.
The South Korean group, which is composed of Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook, celebrated their single's latest feat with a thank you note to their fans, ARMY. Through their official Twitter account, the septet wrote, "FIVE weeks in a row!! #BTS_Butter is on the top of the chart again. It's all thanks to #BTSARMY! AFBF."
Back in May, band member Jimin and Jungkook talked about the meaning behind their hit song. " 'Butter' is very simple," Jungkook told Variety. "It's getting warmer and will get hotter, and we hope that you can spend a fun summer with BTS."
Jimin, on the other hand, elaborated, "If you hear the title 'Butter,' you know immediately that we tried to prepare a song that's easy listening, instead of [something with] a really heavy or profound message." He added, "This is a little embarrassing, but it's something smooth like butter, that really melts into and grabs hold of you. It's a very cute song, sort of a confession."
