Jeon Jungkook has been on a roll this year. The BTS Vocalist has been breaking records left, right, and center and has emerged as the most successful solo Korean artist of 2022. The singer has been part of three songs as a solo artist this year – Stay Alive, Left and Right, and Dreamers.
“Stay Alive” is a song recorded by the artist as the original music for Hybe and Naver Webtoon’s joint webtoon 7Fates: Chakho. Jungkook also collaborated with American artist Charlie Puth on the song “Left & Right.” More recently, the Korean singer contributed to the FIFA World Cup 2022 soundtrack and released the accompanying single “Dreamers.” All of these songs broke records as the highest-debuting songs by a Korean soloist on the Spotify Global chart.
Jungkook also became the most streamed K-Pop soloist of the year as a result of the immense success and popularity of all three of these songs.
And now one of his old releases, Euphoria, has earned him another significant title. With Euphoria, Jungkook now has the Korean Solo Song with the highest number of streams on the biggest music streaming platform, Spotify. The record was previously held for 4 years by Jennie of BLACKPINK, who made her solo debut with her single titled SOLO in 2018.
Jungkook is also (so far) the most-followed K-Pop soloist on Spotify this year. And according to information provided by Visual Capitalist, the 25-year-old singer is also the fastest-growing artist on the music streaming platform.
In addition to the three solo songs that Jungkook was part of this year, he has also released three solo tracks as part of BTS discography: “Begin” in 2016, “Euphoria” in 2018, and “My Time” in 2020, all of which have charted on South Korea’s Gaon Digital Chart.
