BTS rules over Billboard’s Digital Song Sales chart once more this week with their unstoppable smash “Dynamite.” The tune is comfortable atop the list yet again, and while it is surely still selling well, there’s a chance that the South Korean superstars are going to see their latest win fall from the highest rung for the first time next frame…but fans shouldn’t be too upset, as there’s reason to believe it’s going to be replaced by another tune by the same act.
This past Friday (October 2), rising producer and musician Jawsh 685 and pop singer Jason Derulo re-released their joint single “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat),” now with BTS in tow. With the biggest vocal band attached, the tune, which is already a global blockbuster, is surely going to climb on a number of rankings, and it could very well be headed right for the No. 1 spot on the Digital Song Sales tally.
BTS fans are known for being particularly devoted to the band they love, and thanks to their commitment and dedication, the South Korean musicians have developed a reputation in the music industry for being able to sell more copies of songs and albums than nearly anyone else in the business. This trend is sure to continue with “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat),” which doesn’t have far to go before it reaches the highest rung on the Digital Song Sales ranking.
At present, the popular version of that poppy cut is down at No. 5 on this week’s edition of the Digital Song Sales chart, lifting from No. 7. The collaborative winner only needs to step up four spaces, and it looks like competition may not be nearly as fierce this period as it has been.
BTS’s own “Dynamite” will likely see its sales count decline noticeably, as was the case this week (though it still sold more than 86,000 copies). The No. 2 title this frame, Travis Scott, Young Thug and M.I.A.’s “Franchise
At present, it appears that BTS’s biggest competition to claiming another No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart next week with “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)” is their own “Dynamite.” The seven-member vocal act isn’t currently credited on the former title, but as long as the majority of purchases are of the take they’re involved in (which seems highly possible, but which isn’t guaranteed), they’ll see their name attached next time around…and that may mean yet another champion will be added to their discography.
