BTS's Jungkook Breaks Billboard 200 Record For Longest-Charting K-Pop Solo Album In History

BTS’s Jungkook has set a new record on the Billboard 200!

On January 9 local time, Billboard revealed that Jungkook’s solo debut album “GOLDEN” was now spending its ninth consecutive week on the Billboard 200, where it climbed back up to No. 28 this week.

Jungkook is now the first Korean solo artist in history to chart an album for nine weeks on the Billboard 200, breaking the previous record for longest-charting K-pop solo album set by his bandmate V’s “Layover” (which charted for eight non-consecutive weeks last year).

Jungkook also extended his own record as the longest-charting K-pop soloist on Billboard’s Artist 100, where he rose to No. 20 in his 21st non-consecutive week on the chart.

Additionally, Jungkook’s title track “Standing Next to You” climbed back up to No. 70 on Billboard’s Hot 100, marking the song’s ninth consecutive week on the chart. “Standing Next to You” also rose to No. 3 on the Digital Song Sales chart, meaning it was the third best-selling song of the week in the United States.

Meanwhile, “GOLDEN” climbed back up to No. 9 on Billboard’s Top Current Album Sales chart and No. 11 on the Top Album Sales chart in its ninth week on both charts.

On the Global Excl. U.S. chart, Jungkook’s official solo debut single “Seven” (featuring Latto) rose to No. 4, “Standing Next to You” to No. 7, and “3D” (featuring Jack Harlow) to No. 31 this week. On the Global 200, “Seven” climbed to No. 9, “Standing Next to You” to No. 11, and “3D” to No. 42.

Finally, Jungkook once again landed three songs in the top 40 of Billboard’s Pop Airplay chart, which measures weekly plays on mainstream Top 40 radio stations across the United States. His The Kid LAROI and Central Cee collab “Too Much” stayed strong at No. 20, followed by “3D” at No. 23 and “Standing Next to You” at No. 34.

Congratulations to Jungkook!
