BTS’s golden maknae Jungkook has achieved another impressive feat as a solo artist. He is now among the Top 25 Most Streamed K-Pop Artists In Spotify History. This is a remarkable achievement considering that he has not released a solo album yet and only has three original songs as a solo artist.
Jungkook’s Solo Songs
Jungkook’s solo journey began in 2022 when he released three songs that showcased his versatility and talent as a singer-songwriter. The first one was “Stay Alive,” which he recorded as the original soundtrack for the popular webtoon 7Fates:Chakho. The song was a collaboration with his bandmate Suga, who produced the track, and various artists who co-wrote the lyrics. “Stay Alive” is a powerful ballad that expresses the protagonist’s determination to survive and protect his loved ones in a dystopian world. The song received critical acclaim and topped various charts worldwide. It also broke the record for the most-streamed Korean OST on Spotify in its first 24 hours. After a successful debut week, the single broke records by becoming the quickest song by a Korean male solo artist and the fastest Korean OST to amass 30-100 million streams on Spotify. It achieved the former milestone in just 10 days and the latter in 73 days since its release.
The second song was “Left and Right,” which he released in June 2022 as a collaboration with American singer Charlie Puth. The song was a summer anthem that combined Jungkook’s smooth vocals and Charlie Puth’s catchy melodies. The song was a hit among fans and listeners, who praised the chemistry and harmony between the two artists. “Left and Right” peaked at number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States and debuted at number five on the Billboard Global 200. It also became the most-streamed song by a Korean soloist on Spotify in 2022.
The third song was “Dreamers,” which he released in November 2022 as part of the FIFA Qatar World Cup soundtrack. The song was an uplifting anthem that encouraged people to pursue their dreams and celebrate their diversity. The song was well-received by fans and critics alike, who praised Jungkook’s vocal performance and his ability to blend in with different genres and languages.
Jungkook’s Solo Debut Is Coming Soon

According to sources, he is working with some of the best producers and writers in the industry. Jungkook is already confirmed to be making his solo debut with his first studio album this year.
