  • "Butter" shares the record with Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's "One Sweet Day"
  • BTS dropped its latest track "Permission to Dance" on July 9
  • This new track will debut on the chart on July 24

BTS' hit single "Butter" continues to dominate the Billboard Hot 100, setting another record as the song with the longest No. 1 streak on the chart.

Billboard announced Monday that the second all-English song from the K-pop group has remained on the chart for seven weeks straight since its release in May.

"Butter" now shares the record with Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's 1995 song "One Sweet Day."

Released by BigHit Music/HYBE/Columbia Records, "Butter" drew 29.1 million radio airplay audience impressions (up by 6%) and 10.8 million U.S. streams (down by 1%) and sold 108,800 (down by 29%) for the week ending on July 8, according to Billboard.

"Butter" was also hailed as the top-selling song of the week at the Digital Song Sales Chart for the seventh week. It climbed from No. 23 to No. 21 on the radio songs chart and from No. 31 to No. 26 on the streaming songs chart.

The song has effortlessly placed No. 10 on the Pop Airplay chart, making it BTS' second Top 10 on the mainstream Top 40 radio-based chart after the group's first all-English song "Dynamite," which placed at No. 1 in December.

"BTS is the first all-South Korean act with multiple Pop Airplay top 10s. One other artist from South Korea has reached the Pop Airplay top 10: soloist PSY, whose 'Gangnam Style' hit No. 10 in October 2012," Billboard added.

The group dropped its latest track "Permission to Dance" on July 9. Created in collaboration with singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, it is BTS' third all-English single.

"Permission to Dance" is included in the "Butter" CD, which also includes instrumental versions of the two songs.

According to Billboard, this new track is set to debut on the Hot 100 song chart on July 24.

Following the success of "Butter," BTS posted a tweet thanking its fans for helping them rule the chart for seven weeks.

Fans of the group, who call themselves "ARMY," responded positively and posted photos of the group, including memes, to wish "Permission to Dance" to also dominate the chart after "Butter."
