BTS’ “Film Out” Reaches #1 On US iTunes Song Sales Chart, Demi Lovato’s “Art Of Starting Over” #1 On Album Chart

New releases lead the way on iTunes.

As of Friday morning, new releases occupy the top spots on the US iTunes song sales and album charts.

BTS’ “Film out,” which launched Thursday, claims #1 on the song sales chart as of press time at 9AM ET Friday morning. The Japanese-language song first reached the pinnacle position earlier Friday, seizing the throne from Lil Nas X’s “MONTERO.” The buzzy Lil Nas X track is now #2 on the chart.

Demi Lovato’s new “Dancing With The Devil … The Art Of Starting Over,” which launched at midnight Friday, meanwhile rules the US iTunes album sales chart. Its pathway to #1 meant leapfrogging Carrie Underwood’s “My Savior,” which is #2 after spending a good chunk of last week atop the chart.
