BTS fans are celebrating a historic moment for Jimin, as the K-pop star has become the first Korean soloist to hit No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with his chart-topping hit, “Like Crazy.” The song, which is part of Jimin’s debut solo album FACE, has already amassed over 10 million streams and sold 254,000 downloads and CD singles. In its first week of release, it received 64,000 radio airplay audience impressions.
The success of “Like Crazy” is further amplified by the fact that it features two remixes and an instrumental version, alongside the original Korean and English versions. Jimin’s achievement is also noteworthy as he is the first member of BTS to score a No.1 single in the U.S. His pre-release track “Set Me Free Pt.2” charted at No.30 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the highest-charting solo single by any BTS member. Other BTS members, Jungkook and Suga, have both also entered the Top 30, but with collaborations.
The accomplishment has not stopped there for Jimin and “Like Crazy” as the song also landed at No.1 on the Digital Song Sales chart and No.35 on the Streaming Songs chart. To add to the excitement, Jimin’s album FACE debuted at No.2 on the Billboard 200, making it a double triumph for the K-pop sensation.
Overall, Jimin’s achievement is a significant milestone for Korean soloists, and the entire BTS fandom is thrilled to see their beloved artist accomplish such a feat. With his unparalleled talent and drive, Jimin is poised to continue breaking boundaries and shattering records in the music industry.
