BTS’ V Becomes 1st Artist To Surpass 5M Spotify Followers & Monthly Listeners Before Album Release

It’s been a month since the publication of ‘Christmas Tree,’ yet the buzz hasn’t died down. Even before making his official solo debut, Kim Taehyung, alias V, continues to reach new heights as a Korean soloist.

Taehyung’s Spotify page has topped 5 million monthly listeners with only three unpromoted OSTs to his name. He became the first artist to cross 5 million Spotify followers and monthly listeners at the same time before releasing an album or mixtape, after surpassing 5 million Spotify followers a month earlier.

V’s ‘Christmas Tree,’ meanwhile, has become the first Korean OST and solo single by a Korean male act to hit #1 on Spotify’s Top 200 South Korea Daily Chart.

‘Christmas Tree’ outperforms other Korean male soloists’ promoted solo releases by becoming the first to reach 20 days on the Spotify Global chart. It was also the chart’s highest gainer, rising 41 ranks to #155 for the 26th of January.

Congratulations, Kim Taehyung!
