Jason Derulo and Jawsh 685 gave us one of the catchiest songs of 2020 with “Savage Love”. We’ve spent months wondering if it would ever manage to reach no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and that moment is finally here thanks to the BTS remix of the song.
“Savage Love” was originally released on June 11th, and it managed to spark a dance challenge on TikTok and top the charts in several countries around the world. The US wasn’t one of those countries up until this week, but BTS remix helped this tune soar to the top.
“Savage Love” is Derulo’s second no. 1 single, as he previously managed to top the Billboard Hot 100 with “Whatcha Say” in 2009. This is also BTS’ second entry on the chart, after their first all-English single “Dynamite”.
In addition to topping the Hot 100 chart, “Savage Love” hit no. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 chart. This chart was introduced last month, and it’s based on digital sales and online streaming from over 200 territories worldwide.
