A remix of BTS' smash-hit "Butter," has bounced back to the number one spot on this week's Billboard main singles chart.
The remix, featuring Megan Thee Stallion, gave a further boost to BTS' record-breaking track.
With this, the song has claimed the top spot for a tenth non-consecutive week.
According to Billboard, only 40 songs in the 63-year history of the Hot 1-hundred Chart have been at the summit for over ten weeks.
The group's second English-language single, "Butter," made its debut at number one in May, and spent nine consecutive weeks atop the chart, after which it dropped to the fourth, seventh and eighth places in recent weeks.
The Billboard Hot 1-hundred chart is based on U.S. streaming, radio airplays and sales.
The collaboration between the U.S. rapper and BTS comes after she filed a petition in a Texas court asking for emergency relief, saying her label refused to approve the release of the remix.
She reportedly said that a collaboration with BTS, a group with millions of fans around the world, would help her become more well-known outside the U.S.
"There will be more world-renowned artists willing to cooperate with BTS in the future, which will help the group expand its fan base even further."
With the remix, "Butter" ends the summer at the same spot at which it started summer: number 1 in the U.S.
