‘Butter’ made a comeback to the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week, as announced by Billboard yesterday (September 7), following the release of its remix that featured rapper Megan Thee Stallion. This resurgence makes this the 10th week ‘Butter’ has spent on the chart’s top spot.
However, the version of the song that is credited at Number One for the week continues to be the rendition without the American rapper. In its release, Billboard explained that the “total activity” for version of the song without Megan continue to “outpace” the remix, although the new version is credited on the Streaming Songs chart.
Despite this, the official Twitter for BTS celebrated this achievement by thanking Megan, as well as ARMYs (BTS’ official fanbase), for the accomplishment. “#BTS_Butter returns to #1 with amazing [Megan Thee Stallion]! We’re always grateful for your [love] and support #BTSARMY,” they wrote.

In other BTS news, the group recently spoke about their desire to keep pushing the limits with their English releases, saying that “language doesn’t matter to us that much like [it did in] the past”.
“You know, we want to transcend everything, even ourselves too. I guess that’s the power of music”, added BTS leader RM. He then went on to assure fans that there are no “borders, boundaries or limits” when it comes to their releases.
