Jimin from pop mega-group BTS has become the fastest solo K-pop artist to reach 1 billion streams on Spotify (male) in just 393 days.
His bandmate Jungkook set this record just two months ago, but it took him 16 days longer.
Jimin’s six-track EP FACE was uploaded to Spotify on 24 March and was the catalyst for his surge in popularity, with support from the singles “With You” (feat. Ha Sung-woon), “VIBE” (TAEYANG feat. Jimin), “Set Me Free Pt. 2” and “Angel Pt. 1” (feat. Kodak Black, NLE Choppa, JVKE & Muni Long).
He also had a five-track EP titled Like Crazy and even released singles “Promise” (2018) and “Christmas Love” (2020) exclusively on Soundcloud.
As aforementioned, Jungkook set the record two months before with just three songs released to the public.
