BTS is not up for a game right now as the K-pop boy group continues to dominate global charts.
The skyrocketing popularity of BTS is never questionable, especially since they keep on offering their fans new music regularly.
Right now, two of their singles still wave their flags on the Hot 100. According to Forbes, the group's "Butter" and "Permission to Dance" currently stand strong on the ranking.
Between the two, "Butter" led BTS to another record during its career. As of the writing, it advances to No. 9 on Pop Airplay chart, marking its 10th week since it first entered the chart.
It ultimately broke the record they made through "Dynamite which beat Psy's "Gangnam Style."
The new recognition came after online communities alleged that the song was copyrighted. As reported by Soompi, online users claimed that "Butter" has a same melody like Luca Debonaire's "You Got Me Down."
In response to the allegations, BTS' company Big Hit Music released a statement to dismiss the issue.
"It has been confirmed that there are no copyright issues regarding "Butter." It is a song that was finalized and released after undergoing a process of confirming with all songwriters that there are no issues with the song, and there are also no issues currently regarding the song's rights," the statement said.
BTS Dominates Everything
Apart from their recent record-breaking stint, they also dominated the Hanteo Chart's "Hanteo Global K-pop Report: 2021" last month.
