1. Rule change
On July 2nd, Jungkook's solo single release was announced.
1 hour later
Billboard Hot 100 counting method announced
It was about how they removed the ability to count the artists' homepage's digital single downloads

2. US broadcast strike

The United States has been on strike since last May.
Therefore, GMA was the only US promotion he did (due to heavy rain, he could not rehearse properly and had to record only once too).

3. US political issues 

Throughout this year's Billboard Hot 100 and 200, American national singers were in first place, so American ARMYs were nervous.

A certain song suddenly raises a black human rights political issue.
(The music video was filmed in 1927 in front of a court where a black boy was assaulted and hanged by 350 white men, and it is suspected that the lyrics and music video also contain disparaging content about blacks and BLM)
Although the singer himself strongly denied it,
American white conservatives gathered and purchased the music in large quantities.

Because of this, I wasn't sure who would win first until right before the announcement.
to some extent
Billboard's official said it was the fiercest competition for number one in Billboard's 65-year history.

In they end, he won by only 2 points

There were a lot of difficulties, such as the fact that Hybe was out of stock for almost a week because the company couldn't predict the demand for CDs.

This is an especially meaningful #1 for American Army
