The agency, BigHit Music, said the feat made Jungkook the first Korean soloist to land a song atop Spotify’s global chart. The record also made “Seven” the most streamed of songs newly listed on Spotify’s global top songs chart.
The instrumental version of “Seven” also debuted in 65th place, while Jungkook’s two other numbers, “Still With You” and “My You,” ranked 54th and 113th on the chart, respectively.
