BTS’ Jungkook creates a record of longest charting K-pop solo in Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart

Each and every band member from BTS is setting records upon records these days. Just a couple of days back, Jimin created a record of being the first K-pop artist to have more than 100 million streams for three different solo tracks. And now, Jungkook has created yet another record. The 23-year-old BTS vocalist has created a record for the only and longest-charting K-pop artist with his track Euphoria that has stayed in the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart for 38 weeks now. He had earlier created the record when his solo track My Time had tied with Jimin’s filter as the longest-charting track by a K-pop artist with a time of 35 weeks. Taking about Jungkook’s Euphoria, the solo track features the septet and belongs to their compilation album, Love Yourself: Answer.

Euphoria touches upon the themes of fun times with your people (in this case, the bandmates). The visuals see Jin waking up, V falling into the water and other members trapped in other struggles. The video is shown from Jin’s POV and we see him struggle to live life as he misses his boys dearly. He gets flashes from their past and their fun times. In the end, it is implied that Jin jumps into the ocean, thus committing suicide.

Euphoria’s music video was released way before the song was released in August 2018. In spite of that fact, Euphoria kept creating history and was put at #5 on the Billboard under Hot100 chart. Earlier, with Euphoria, Jungkook broke Taeyang’s record when the track stayed in the Billboard World Digital Song Sales charts for about 22 weeks. It had surpassed Taeyang’s Eyes, Nose, Lips that stayed for 21 weeks on the chart. This year in May Jungkook surpassed BLACKPINK artist Jennie’s Solo and Hyuna’s Bubble Pop making him the K-pop artist to have the longest-charting in the solo track category.
