BTS’s Jungkook Sweeps iTunes Charts + Sets New U.S. Record With His World Cup Song “Dreamers”
On November 20 at 2 p.m. KST, Jungkook released the new solo single “Dreamers,” his contribution to this year’s World Cup soundtrack. Later that same day, he went on to perform the song live for the first time at the World Cup 2022 opening ceremony in Qatar.
Immediately upon its release, “Dreamers” shot to the top of iTunes charts in numerous countries all over the world. Just 13 hours after it first dropped, the single had already reached No. 1 on iTunes Top Songs charts in at least 102 different regions, including the world’s eight biggest music markets: the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, France, Canada, Australia, Germany, and Italy.
“Dreamers” also set a new record for the fastest official FIFA World Cup song to hit No. 1 on the iTunes Top Songs chart in the United States—the song took only 2 hours and 11 minutes to top the chart.
Congratulations to Jungkook!
