BTS’ Set Of ‘Dynamite’ Remixes Have Helped The Song Return To No. 1 On The Hot 100

Earlier this month, BTS made history when “Dynamite,” their first English-language song, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated September 5, making them the first all-South Korean artist to have a chart-topping song in the US. They kept their run alive for a second consecutive week on the next chart, only to have Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” knock it from the top. “Dynamite” also spent the next week at No. 2, which brings us to this week: After two weeks away from the No. 1 spot, “Dynamite” is back on top on the chart dated October 3.

The song got a big boost thanks to a pack of remixes the group shared of the track: On September 18, the band shared “Bedroom,” “Midnight,” “Retro,” and “Slow Jam” remixes of the song, which accounted for 52 percent of the song’s overall sales in the tracking week.

Elsewhere on the chart, Justin Bieber and Chance The Rapper’s new collaboration “Holy” debuted at No. 3. That makes the song Bieber’s 20th top-10 hit, and it’s the third such song for Chance. Meanwhile, “WAP” has settled back into the No. 2 spot.
