“The Astronaut” by Jin of BTS Ranks On “Steady Sellers of The Week” Section on The US Weverse Shop Months After Release

The Astronaut, a solo album by Jin, earned massive success both nationally and internationally. Recently, the Secretary General of KMCA described Jin as the “perfect idol,” who is popular with the people and successful in streams and charts. The best-selling K-pop soloist of the ten-year period will soon be Jin, who has just a few thousand more sales to make. He sold a million or more albums (excluding the USA and Europe). Jin holds both the RIA certificate in Japan and a gold certificate on the Circle (Gaon) chart (after selling over 104k albums).

Jin released “The Astronaut” on October 28, 2022, as his debut solo single. The song was co-written by: Jin; British rock band Coldplay, who previously collaborated with BTS on “My Universe”; Norwegian DJ Kygo, who produced the track with Bill Rahko; and Chris Martin’s son Moses Martin. The song is about Jin’s love for and connection to his followers. Through the use of a repeating cosmic motif, which the band and vocalist both like using in their songs, it addresses themes of connection and love.

“The Astronaut” is still placing second and third in the “Steady sales of the week” on Weverse Shop in the USA, 3.5 months after its debut. The album’s second edition is completely sold out. This is massive considering the “album” has only one song.

Fans are still griping to Hybe about the absence of information on Jin’s actual sales in the USA and Europe in the meanwhile. The only thing we are aware of is that Jin has become the best-selling K-pop soloist in digital sales in the USA. The first week of sales for “The Astronaut” in the USA in 2022 ranked sixth best (with just digital sales). Many admirers contact Hybe their grievances using trending hashtags. The corporation, however, has not released any statements.
