With The Solo OST ‘Christmas Tree,’ BTS’ V Makes History On The Billboard Charts

The Billboard rankings have been updated this week and BTS’ V’s song ‘Christmas Tree’ has officially debuted at No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart.

The song, which was released as part of the soundtrack for actor Choi Woo Shik and actress Kim Dami’s drama ‘Our Beloved Summer,’ was the best-selling single in the United States for the week.

V has become the first Korean solo artist to have a solo song debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Digital Song Sales chart.

BTS’ SUGA, with ‘Girl Of My Dreams,’ a collaboration with Juice WRLD, is the only other Korean solo artist to debut at No. 1 on the chart
