After seven consecutive weeks at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart, BTS‘s “Butter” passed the crown to “Permission to Dance” and dropped to No.7. Now, “Permission to Dance” is the Hot 100 king and “Butter” is reigning over the No.1 spot on the Songs of the Summer chart.

According to Billboard, this “double coronation” is rarely achieved. In fact, no artist has held simultaneous No.1s on the Hot 100 and Songs of the Summer charts in almost 11 years. The last artist to do it was Katy Perry, back in 2010.

Congrats, BTS!
