Hot 100: #SavageLove Is Jason Derulo’s First #1 Hit in Over 10 Years Thanks to BTS Remix

Published: Monday 12th Oct 2020 by Rashad

Jason Derulo‘s ‘Savage Love’ proves itself to be the gift that keeps on giving.

Thanks to explosive popularity on Tik Tok, the song became Derulo’s first Platinum-certified hit since 2017 and first Hot 100 top 10 hit since 2015 (as we reported here).

Now, thanks to a boost from the boys of BTS, the 31-year-old can boast tenancy in the tally’s top spot for the first time since 2009!

Details inside:

As we reported here, the October 2-unveiled BTS remix to ‘Savage Love’ was part of a jam-packed “Super Friday” of music releases that also included releases from the likes of Mariah Carey, Shawn Mendes, 21 Savage, Megan Thee Stallion, BLACKPINK, Bryson Tiller, and many more.

Despite steep competition from the host of big names, Derulo and co. managed to slide to the top spot.

Here are the numbers that powered the Pop hit to #1:

  • Streaming: 16 Million (US)
  • Radio airplay: 70.6 Million (US All-Formats)
  • Digital Downloads: 76,000

Over four months after its original incarnation first hit airwaves, ‘Savage Love’s rule of the chart comes as a milestone for every act involved.  For BTS, they make history as the first K-Pop act to boast two Hot 100 #1 hits while for Jawsh 685, the song’s credited producer, the ascent serves as his inaugural visit to the chart’s apex position.

The most seasoned of the trio of acts, Jason, has the most to celebrate as he hasn’t topped the tally since his debut single – 2009’s 5x Platinum ‘Whatcha Say.’

Check in tomorrow to see who joins Derulo and BTS in our weekly Hot 100 review, ‘TGJ Chart Check.’

    Good for him. He has consistently deliver bops and stayed on the charts since 2009. Even tho all of his music isn’t my cup of tea…I always say he has always been more consistent than Chris Brown.

    Just like Nicki, cheat and pay to ride someone else coattails to get a number 1 and stay relevant

    • Kenny October 12, 2020

      Nicki earned her hits

    • FAF October 12, 2020

      and still got them without paying radio stations or using another artist hashtag on YouTube or divorcing a cheating husband for publicity

      We’re waiting on the sophomore album

      • I am the Mf’kn Clout!!! October 12, 2020

        @FAF, you might want to get your facts straight! Because while your fave was accusing Cardi b of using PAYOLA explain to me why Nicki’s Label (Republic Records) was found guilty of using it? Cardi’s label was NOT!!!… #Receipts:


  4. Only Facts October 12, 2020

    The charts legitimately mean NOTHING these days. The fact that this joke of a song is #1 is comical. And the fact that this means BTS has a second #1 is comical. What a mess

    • Gag Order October 12, 2020

      If they don’t then why did you constantly make fun of nicki over it?? I always said since streaming has changed the industry number 1 doesn’t mean anything..if you have a lot of fans who are willing to spend their allowance from their parents on buying songs over and Over and having streaming parties it’s not hard to go number one.

    Jason derulo= the male normani

    Being corny pays alot
    Jason has 2 number one songs but he still has zero impact or influence in the music industry or on pop culture.

    That is sad

  6. Clarks0o0ñ October 12, 2020

    Billboard should stop allowing artists jump on a song that is already a hit

    Beyonce is the queen of doing the shìt
    She did it for
    Ed Sheeran perfect
    J balvin me gentle
    Megan thee stallion savage

    These songs were already hits
    They were already in the top 20

    Its fraudulent

    • Gag Order October 12, 2020

      That’s stupid remixes don’t always go number 1

  7. Rashad October 12, 2020

    And where is Travis Scott’s microwave mumble rap trash that was #1 last week? Gone. Time to readjust how bundling and streaming counts

    • Urg October 12, 2020

      He is predicted the fall even harder than rat9 and Nicki which would be pretty pathetic.

  8. COLD HARD FACTS October 12, 2020

    call him corny all you want but the king of pop keeps winning. Savage love went #1 in over 20 countries already. He continues to win quarantine.
    1. over 200 million records sold worldwide
    2. 2 billboards hot 100 #1
    3. 5th billboards pop #1
    4. 13 billboards to 20
    5. 5th UK #1
    6. 15 UK top 10
    6 15 Australia top 10 and the list goes on.

    It’s funny to me how much y’all be hating on a brother for no legitimate reason. SMFH

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED October 12, 2020

      He can have Dozens more big Hit records but he’ll never appeal to me because he’s simply not a STAR. Lil Nas X is a Star, hell TYGA is a Star… Jason is just sum random that records music that miraculously is successful
      Seems these mediocre ASAIN groups starting to take over

    • ID October 12, 2020

      Wack negro hasn’t even sold 10 million

  9. DIABETES UNBOTHERED October 12, 2020

    I’m shocked this DISNEY act even has a Top 20 so congrats. He’s one f those artist I NEVER pay any attention too… This would be the first

  10. AriRihNaj October 12, 2020

    I knew it would have jump to #1 congrats

  11. Fancy BISH October 12, 2020

    Big diiick Derulo with ALL the FLAVOR 🤳🏽 Savage Love is a REAL HIT, unlike that other BULLSHIIIT that fell out the Hot 100 Top 10 after one week 🤣

  12. ID October 13, 2020

  13. 1988 October 13, 2020
