In a groundbreaking feat, BTS’s golden maknae, Jungkook, has secured his place as the K-pop artist with the most No. 1 songs on Spotify’s Global Top Songs chart, outshining his own group and BLACKPINK.
Jungkook’s latest triumph comes with his new title track, “Standing Next to You,” which ascended to the coveted No. 1 spot on Spotify’s daily Global Top Songs chart. This accomplishment marks his third solo song to achieve this feat, following the success of “Seven” featuring Latto and “3D” featuring Jack Harlow earlier this year.
What sets Jungkook apart is his historic achievement of being the first K-pop artist to claim the No. 1 spot on Spotify’s global chart with three distinct songs. This remarkable milestone surpasses both BTS and BLACKPINK, each with two No. 1 hits, firmly establishing Jungkook as the reigning monarch of Spotify’s Global Top Songs chart.
Furthermore, Jungkook continues to extend his own record for the most days at No. 1 on Spotify’s global chart. Across all his solo songs, he has now accumulated an impressive total of 73 days in the top position, showcasing his unwavering dominance and global appeal.
In a testament to his solo success, Jungkook’s debut single, “Seven,” has recently etched its name in Spotify history by becoming the fastest song to surpass 1 billion streams. This milestone shatters the previous record held by Miley Cyrus’s “Flowers,” solidifying Jungkook’s position as a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.
Congratulations to Jungkook for yet another historic achievement, proving that his talent and influence continue to elevate him to unprecedented heights in the world of K-pop and beyond.
