SB19 continues to dominate Billboard's Hot Trending Songs with "Bazinga." The track claims the No. 1 spot on the chart dated Jan. 1, 2022, overtaking BTS' "Butter" for the third consecutive week.

The Filipino boyband became the first act to beat BTS on Billboard's Hot Trending Songs. It first made it to the summit of the chart dated Dec. 11 after getting 280,000 mentions on Twitter within a 24-hour period and being mentioned 3 million times within the week.

BTS and SB19 may be miles away in terms of streaming data and record sales but the latter has an advantage when it comes to the number of mentions on Twitter. Moreover, SB19's dominance on the list just shows how important dedicated fandoms are in the growth of global artists.

"Bazinga" has so far remained on the Hot Trending Songs chart for eight weeks, while "Butter" has been on the list for a total of 10 weeks.

Trailing closely on the third spot is Japanese pop group BE: FIRST with its debut single "Gifted." The track also snatches the No. 1 spot on this week's Hot Trending Songs global charts. It has already been a month since the song's release but it is still generating buzz on Twitter.

At No. 4 is Dimash Kudaibergen's "Fly Away." It is followed by K-pop band NCT's "Dreaming," which is part of the group's new album titled "Universe."

IVE's "Eleven" is currently at No. 6, while Blackpink member Lisa's solo track, "Lalisa," has occupied the No. 7 spot. The latter has been on the chart for 10 weeks now.

At No. 8 is BTS member Jin's "Yours," followed by his fun but controversial song "Super Tuna," which is at No. 9.

Aespa claims this week's No. 10 spot with its track "Dreams Come True," pushing Dimash Kudaibergen's "Be with Me" down to No. 11.

Billboard's Hot Trending Songs chart is powered by Twitter and sponsored by Capital One. It tracks global music-related trends and conversations on Twitter covering either the last 24 hours or the past seven days. The chart keeps track of what songs people are talking about on the microblogging platform and not necessarily what the users are listening to.
