Jungkook's GOLDEN reign continues to shatter records on Billboard

Since its debut, the first solo album from South Korea's Golden Voice has consistently dominated the upper ranks of the Billboard charts, even surpassing the weekly sales of pop queen Taylor Swift.

Fresh off the electrifying remix video for Standing Next To You with Usher, BTS' golden maknae, Jungkook, has etched his name in Billboard history. He became the first Korean solo artist to spend five consecutive weeks in the Top 40 of the Billboard 200, proving his solo power on the global stage. But that's not all! Breaking yet another record, Jungkook is the first K-pop soloist to hold the No. 16 spot on the Billboard Artist 100 for an amazing 17 weeks.
