BTS’s Jimin Creates History as First Korean Solo Artist to Top Us Songs List
As the first South Korean solo artist to reach the top spot on the American Songs chart, Jimin, a member of the K-pop ensemble BTS, has created history, according to Billboard. This week, the song “Like Crazy” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100, unseating Miley Cyrus’s “Flowers,” which had held the top spot for eight weeks.
Thanks to “Like Crazy,” Jimin is the first South Korean solo artist to have a No. 1 hit on the Hot 100, according to a tweet from Billboard. The tune, which is from Jimin’s debut solo album “Face,” is the 66th to enter at the top of the Hot 100 list, which has been in existence since 1958 and incorporates all-genre US streaming, radio play, and sales statistics, according to an industry tracker.
Industry sources said that “Face” dethroned fellow BTS member RM’s “Indigo,” which peaked at No. 3 in December, to become the highest charting album by a South Korean solo artist. BTS is regarded as South Korea’s biggest cultural success to date, topping the charts, selling out stadiums throughout the globe, bringing in billions for the economy, and amassing an army of ARMYs of followers around the world.
