Jungkook of BTS Shatters Records with ‘Seven’: A Historic Three-Week Reign on Billboard Charts

A Historic Achievement: Jungkook's 'Seven' Marks a New Era in South Korean Music, Dominating Global Charts

Seoul, South Korea (TEH) – The youngest soloist of the globally renowned South Korean group BTS, Jungkook, continues to make history with his digital single “Seven.” Released on July 12, 2023, the track has not only topped three Billboard charts but also maintained its position for an unprecedented three weeks, breaking all previous records.

Jungkook’s “Seven” achieved the extraordinary feat of reaching the first line on the Billboard Hot 100, Global 200, and Global Excl. WE charts simultaneously. This marks the first time in the history of the American music weekly that a South Korean hit has stayed on the charts for such an extended period.

But the accolades don’t stop there. The track also made its mark on the Hot 100 lists, where it remained in the top 10 lines of the chart until the end of July, only to fall to the 30th place in August. In the Billboard Pop Airplay lists, the single still holds a confident 20th place, and in the Billboard Digital Song Sales, it ranks 6th out of a possible 50.

Jungkook’s journey as a solo artist began in 2015 with his participation in the “One Dream, One Korea” campaign. However, his debut as a singer was marked by the song “Seven.” Among South Korean singers, Jungkook became only the second artist not to fall below number 30 in three weeks on the chart. The first to achieve this milestone was PSY with the global hit “Gangnam Style.”

The success of “Seven” is a testament to Jungkook’s exceptional talent and the growing influence of K-pop on the international music scene. It also reflects the dedicated fan base that BTS has cultivated over the years, contributing to the group’s continued dominance in the music industry.

Jungkook’s record-breaking performance is more than just a personal triumph; it’s a symbol of South Korea’s cultural prowess and its ability to resonate with audiences worldwide. As the world continues to embrace K-pop, artists like Jungkook are leading the way, setting new standards, and inspiring a generation of musicians to dream big.
