Billboard Hot 100: BTS’ ‘Dynamite’ Dominates At #1 For 2nd Week

Published: Tuesday 8th Sep 2020 by Sam

K-Pop kings BTS reign for a second week atop of the Billboard Hot 100.

Dive below for details…

Having topped the tally last week with ‘Dynamite,’ the seven-piece group have extended their stay thanks to colossal numbers.

Proving that their historical touchdown a week prior (when they became the first Korean act to top the US charts) was no fluke, the band amassed the following in their second week:

  • 17.5 million U.S. streams
  • 182,000 downloads sold
  • 16 million radio airplay audience impressions 

The download figure is especially notable, as ‘Dynamite’ becomes the first song in almost 4 years to have sold 180,000 in consecutive weeks.

As for how BTS pulled it off?

‘Dynamite’ benefited from new ‘Poolside’ and ‘Tropical’ remixes – both of which were sale-priced at 69 cents. Collectively, they added to the original, EDM, acoustic, and instrumental versions. All of which were also priced at 69 cents.

Suffice to say, with the potency of merchandise bundles lessened in light of recent Billboard rule changes, artist teams are finding new avenues to rack up sales.

    Hahahahaha I thought the hater squad said it was going to drop off the charts. Those little teenage fan girls don’t play. Barbz take notes🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • Pat September 8, 2020

      So U gotta release new remixes every week to stay in position these days

      • PinotNoir September 8, 2020

        Mariah did in the 90’s. Even 《We Belong Together》was remixed for top chart position longevity.

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭 September 8, 2020

      I hate those stupid naive teenager girls. They have no taste in music. The song is totally a ripped off from uptown funk. 👎👎👎👎

      • J September 8, 2020

        And “Uptown Funk” is a complete rip of “All Gold Everything” in an eighties funk style. Nothing new under the sun ☀️

  2. Shayla Queen 👑 September 8, 2020

    Not a good week for Cardi. And she got OBLITERATED by Candace Owens SEVERAL times 🤣🤣🤣

      • Shayla Queen 👑 September 8, 2020

        I’m not a “hater,” I just think she should keep her mouth out if issues she knows nothing of and stick to stripping and rapping.

    • Misty Knight September 8, 2020

      Cardi B DESTROYED KLANace Owens, the RNC tap-dancing COOONN that got rejected by her massa for another tap-dancer.

      • Shayla Queen 👑 September 8, 2020

        And how do you figure that? By being illiterate, speaking broken English, being uneducated in topics she “spoke” of and having no evidence of the lies she was spewing?

    • DC September 8, 2020

        Now beat it, hedgehog!

    • Gag September 8, 2020

  3. Clarks0o0ñ September 8, 2020

    So it’s only artists with huge fan bases that are gonna get a number one from now on?

    Congratulations to bts tho. This song is good

    • Shayla Queen 👑 September 8, 2020

      • Clarks0o0ñ September 8, 2020

        The beat is groovy.

      • Section8DaGreat September 8, 2020

        🤣🤣🤣🤣 we all know it’s some bullsh*t

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭 September 8, 2020

        😂🤣😂I swear to god Im hearing “Ching Ching Chong Chong” thru the whole song

  4. #WAP September 8, 2020

    And I’m sure all of that 💰is going to the label and their team and the 7 of them only get $10,000/year.

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭 September 8, 2020

      Or even less than that. No wonder many Korean artists committed suicide every year. Especially the young girls from the band. I hear they aren’t allowed to eat more than one apple a day.

  5. Section8DaGreat September 8, 2020

    Everybody knows there are billions of Asians who will support their own. If there where as many black people as there are Asians and White folks black music would be at the top also.

  6. tyty September 8, 2020

    So artists are doing a 100 remixes to stay number 1 now? Billboard is a mess

    • Shayla Queen 👑 September 8, 2020

      Boy bye.

      • tyty September 8, 2020

        Plays mariah carey obsessed

      • Shayla Queen 👑 September 8, 2020

        I said that to Trashy BISH the other day. Go find some originality. Boring, basic b****.

    • AWTM September 9, 2020

      FYI, artists have always put our multiple remixes following their singles (blinding lights, bad guy and their dozen remixes).

      You are only noticing it now because,
      1- their huge fanbase is actually buying and consuming it all (hence most of the remixes charting super high for you to take notice).
      2- you are Just pressed that a Korean group is selling music at a rate others can’t.

      Either way, while their fanbase is keeping em at the top by purchasing all their remixes, other artists fans do so with merch. I guess army got the right idea to keep you guys pressed, and their faves at the top.

  7. Misty Knight September 8, 2020

    Selena Gomez and KOREAN stars BlackPink debut at #13 with “Ice Cream.”

    Higher than anything Katy Perry’s done lately…

  8. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭 September 8, 2020

    A bunch of transgenders. Drag queens of auto tunes. They do have some flavors like fancy bish, I mean their smelly kimchi flavor 😂🤣😂🤣😂

  9. chilepleaseee September 8, 2020

    They could exchange every single group member with someone different and I wouldn’t even notice.

    • Shayla Queen 👑 September 8, 2020

      They are the most unattractive group I think I’ve ever seen.

    • Misty Knight September 8, 2020

      That’s what white people say about black people.

  10. PinotNoir September 8, 2020

    My only explanation?

    US girls like submissive boys.

    Seen it with my 👀. Hey, Ashley!

  11. Fancy BISH September 8, 2020
