BTS is undoubtedly one of the most popular and influential musical acts in the world today. The seven-member group has broken countless records and achieved unprecedented success with their albums, singles, and collaborations. But BTS does not only have fame as a group, its members have managed to build strong and huge solo fan communities. Among them, Jeon Jungkook, the youngest member of BTS, has proven himself to be a versatile and powerful soloist, even without having released a solo album yet.

Jungkook has released six solo songs so far, three under BTS’ name and three under his own name. These songs are:

  • Begin (2016): A song about Jungkook’s journey from being a young dreamer in Busan to joining BTS in Seoul and finding his “brothers” who helped him grow and discover his emotions.
  • Euphoria (2018): A song about taking a risk and feeling the joy of love and life.
  • My Time (2020): A song about Jungkook’s reflections on his career and personal growth, as well as his struggles with loneliness and pressure.
  • Stay Alive (2022): A song about encouraging oneself and others to keep going despite the hardships and challenges.
  • Left And Right (2022): A catchy, upbeat pop song, the lyrics of “Left and Right” focus on memories of a past love and how consumed by thoughts of that former relationship one can become.
  • Dreamers (2022): A song about chasing one’s dreams and having fun along the way.

All of these songs have received immense love and support from fans and critics alike, as they showcase Jungkook’s versatility and vulnerability as a singer, songwriter, and producer. Jungkook has also demonstrated his ability to sing in different genres, such as pop, rock, R&B, ballad, jazz, and EDM.

But what makes Jungkook’s solo songs even more impressive is that they have all achieved remarkable sales figures in the US market, which is considered one of the most competitive and lucrative in the world. According to Chart Data , a reliable source for music statistics, all of Jungkook’s solo songs have sold at least 200K units in the US as of March 2023.

This is an incredible feat for any artist, let alone a K-pop soloist who has not yet released a solo album. Jungkook is the first Korean soloist to have all of his songs sell at least 200K units in the US, surpassing other popular soloists such as PSY, CL, Taemin, IU, and Rosé. He is also one of the few artists in the world who can boast such a consistent track record of sales for his solo songs.

Jungkook’s solo songs are not only popular in the US, but also worldwide. His song “Euphoria” is currently the most-streamed solo Korean song on Spotify , with over 466 million streams. His songs “Left & Right”, “Stay Alive”, and “Dreamers” all debuted in the top five of Spotify Global 200 chart . His songs have also topped various iTunes charts , YouTube charts , Shazam charts , and Billboard charts around the world.

Jungkook’s solo songs are not only commercial successes, but also artistic expressions of his personality, emotions, experiences, and aspirations. They are also gifts to his fans, who have been eagerly waiting for his solo album for years. Jungkook is working hard on his upcoming debut solo album, but he does not want to rush it or compromise on its quality. He wants to make sure that it is perfect and that it reflects his true self.

While fans are patiently waiting for Jungkook‘s solo album, they can enjoy his solo songs that he has already released. These songs are proof of Jungkook’s immense talent and potential as a soloist , as well as his growth as an artist .
