K-pop boy band BTS and their hit song 'Dynamite' have reclaimed the top spot on the Billboard main singles chart.
The song debuted last month at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and stayed there for two weeks before slipping to second place.
They are the first ever South Korean artist to reach number one and now that they're back on top, 'Dynamite' is the first song by a duo or group in nearly two years to top the chart for three or more weeks.

For their global fans, BTS is making nightly appearances for five nights in a row on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.'
That started Monday with a performance of the song 'Idol' recorded at Gyeongbokgung Palace.
Under the name 'BTS Week', the show will feature performances, comedy segments as well as an interview with the group, and on Wednesday they'll be the host's main guest of the night.

And more big news for the band their agency, Big Hit Entertainment, has announced that BTS will release a new album on November 20th.
Titled 'BE,' it will be their second album of the year after 'MAP OF THE SOUL : 7,' which was released in February.
The agency said it will carry a message of hope in the global pandemic.
