Jimin and Jungkook of BTS dominate global music charts with exceptional influence

BTS members Jimin and Jungkook are making waves on global charts with their latest and previous releases, showcasing their immense influence and popularity.

On July 9th, Billboard announced its latest chart rankings. Jimin's pre-release track "Smeraldo Garden Marching Band (feat. Loco)" from his second solo album 'MUSE,' debuted at No. 88 on the 'Hot 100' chart. Remarkably, this achievement was driven solely by digital sales and music video views, highlighting Jimin's extraordinary fanbase. The track also topped the 'World Digital Song Sales' chart, ranked No. 3 on 'Digital Song Sales,' No. 7 on 'Global (Excl. US),' and No. 16 on the 'Global 200.'

Additionally, Jimin's title track "Like Crazy" from his first solo album 'FACE,' released last April, saw a notable rise in rankings, climbing to No. 60 on the 'Global (Excl. US)' chart and No. 108 on the 'Global 200.'

Jungkook continues to shine on the Billboard charts as well. His solo single "Seven (feat. Latto)," released in July last year, remains at No. 64 on the 'Global 200,' while "Standing Next to You," the title track from his solo album 'GOLDEN,' released in November 2023, sits at No. 190. On the 'Global (Excl. US)' chart, "Seven" holds the No. 41 spot, "Standing Next to You" is at No. 103, and his digital single "Never Let Go," released in June this year, is at No. 127.

Excitement is building as Jimin prepares to release the full tracks of his second solo album 'MUSE' and the music video for the title track "Who" on July 19th. This new album, featuring seven songs, delves into themes of love and the quest for inspiration.

In celebration of Jimin's album release, a special pop-up event, 'MUSE Smeraldo Garden,' will be held from July 22nd to 28th at Plant Park PH in Gangnam, Seoul. The event promises fans a unique experience with interactive booths, photo zones, and a message garden.

Fans can also look forward to Jimin and Jungkook's travel vlog 'Are You Sure?!' premiering on Disney+ on August 8th. This series captures the duo's adventures across Korea, the US, and Japan, and consists of eight episodes, with new episodes released every Thursday. Jungkook teased this series during his appearance on Suga's 'Suchwita,' sparking great anticipation among fans.
