BTS is one of only seven artists to reach the first 4 #1’s on the US Charts in less than a year!
BTS has been consistently making history with their latest single, “Butter.” It became the most played song for a week on Japan’s Oricon chart. “Butter” also peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, making them the only group to do so since The Jackson 5. In the recent time, BTS Is The FIRST Act With Four Albums Spending 20+ Weeks at #1 On Billboard World Albums Chart & Other Records.
Moreover, “Butter” is the fourth #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, following “Dynamite,” “Life Goes On,” and their remix between Jawsh 635 and Jason Derulo’s “Savage Love.” All of this was completed in less than a year!
BTS’ hard work and songs have received attention and recognition from not only ARMY but also several other legends in the music industry. Jimin’s idol Usher recently posted a TikTok, referencing BTS’s iconic line from “Butter,” “Don’t need no Usher, to remind me you’ve got it bad”.
Now, singer, dancer, choreographer and almighty icon Paula Abdul has posted heartfelt congratulations to BTS for their latest rankings.
Abdul welcomes BTS to a family of only seven artists who have been able to achieve “first four in the US in less than a year”. She added, “I’m also happy to share this achievement with you.” Paula Abdul was one of the original judges on the television series American Idol from 2002 to 2009, and has since appeared as a judge on The X Factor, Live to Dance, So You Think You Can Dance, and The Masked Dancer.
BTS joins a group with Abdul, The Jackson 5, The Beatles, Mariah Carey, Justin Timberlake and The Supremes themselves, who have already established this feat.
