BTS's Jungkook Becomes 1st Korean Artist To Top Spotify's Global Weekly Chart For 5 Consecutive Weeks

BTS’s Jungkook has set an impressive new record on Spotify’s weekly Global Top Songs chart!

Back in July, Jungkook’s single “Seven” (featuring Latto) made Spotify history as the first song by a K-pop soloist ever to debut at No. 1 on the Global Top Songs chart. The song’s record-breaking 24-hour debut also made Jungkook the first male artist from any country to surpass 15 million first-day streams with a new song on Spotify—and only the second overall, following Taylor Swift.

Over a month later, “Seven” continues its uninterrupted reign at No. 1 on Spotify’s weekly Global Top Songs chart—making Jungkook the first Korean artist in history to top the chart for five consecutive weeks.

Meanwhile, “Seven” also climbed back up the United Kingdom’s Official Singles Chart (widely regarded as the U.K. equivalent of Billboard’s Hot 100 in the United States) for the second week in a row. After making a historic debut at No. 3 last month, “Seven” rose to No. 24 this week, marking the song’s fifth consecutive week in the top 30.

Congratulations to Jungkook!
