Jan 25,2018
Boy band BTS is on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the eighth consecutive week with the remix of its single “Mic Drop.”

“Mic Drop,” featuring hip-hop artist Desiigner and remixed by Steve Aoki, ranked No. 79 on Billboard’s main chart for the week of Jan. 27, according to Billboard’s website Tuesday.

Although the song fell five spots from the previous week, BTS became the longest-lasting K-pop act on the Billboard chart.

The song, originally released in September on the album “Love Yourself: Her,” was released again as a remix Nov. 24. It debuted on the Hot 100 at No. 28 in early December.

The album took 82nd place on the Billboard 200 this week, remaining on the main album chart for the 15th consecutive week. It remained on top of the World Album for the eighth week in a row.
