    Boy band Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, ranked at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart again with another all-English song, "Permission to Dance."

    The Korean septet supplanted themselves in the top spot, "as... 'Butter' falls to No. 7 after seven weeks at No. 1," Billboard said on Monday.

    The song "drew 15.9 million U.S. streams and 1.1 million radio airplay audience impressions and sold 140,000 downloads... in the week ending July 15," said the most influential U.S. music chart.

    "Permission to Dance," with its choreography incorporating international sign language, became their fifth song to top the chart after "Dynamite," "Life Goes On," "Butter" and the remix version of "Savage Love," a collaboration with Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo.
