On July 26 local time, Billboard divulged the songs that made it to Top 10 of Hot 100 for the week of July 31.

In the previous week, BTS had made history by replacing themselves as No.1 on the Hot 100 with "Permission to Dance" overtaking "Butter," who had defended its top spot for seven weeks in a row. With "Butter" taking the No.1 spot again from "Permission to Dance," this marks the second "passing of the baton" for BTS.

Not only that, but this gives BTS a new record of being the first-ever act in Billboard history to replace itself as No.1 on the Hot 100 with a new song, and sending the previous No.1 back to the top spot without any other acts taking the spot in between.

As "Butter" reclaims the top spot, this marks the song's eighth non-consecutive week of being No.1 on Hot 100, and is now tied with Olivia Rodrigo's "drivers license" for the longest-running No.1 song of 2021, so far.

"Permission to Dance" Falls to No. 7 on Hot 100 This Week

For the week of July 31, "Butter" saw an increase of 132 percent in its downloads, accumulating a total of 115,600 downloads sold as compared to the previous week's 49,800.

"Permission to Dance," whose rank fell to No.7 this week, saw a decrease of 39 percent in its downloads sales, having a cumulative of 85,000 downloads sold this week ending on July 22, compared to last week's 140,100.

In addition, "Butter" also had a two percent increase in its radio airplay audience impressions and took the No.21 spot on the Radio Songs chart, as well as No.40 on the Streaming Songs chart.

Not only did "Butter" replace "Permission to Dance" on Hot 100, it also replaced the song on the Digital Songs Sales chart. However, both "Butter and "Permission to Dance" are the two best-selling songs of the week in the United States.

Congratulations to BTS on another feat!
