The new song quickly earns #1 on the all-genre chart.

BTS’ new single “Permission To Dance” launched at midnight ET late Thursday/early Friday, and it generated a predictably massive outpouring of enthusiasm.

The enthusiasm sent the song soaring to its inevitable destination of #1 on the all-genre US iTunes song sales chart. It remains in the position as of press time at 1:45PM ET Friday morning.
