BTS stars Jimin and Jungkook are contiunuing to smash chart records in their solo careers during their scheduled break as a band.
All seven members of the K-pop group are still active in the industry, although it’s Jimin and Jungkook who have most recently entered the record books.
Over on alternative streaming service SoundCloud, Jimin has broken two records for his 2018 single “Promise”.
On 17 June 2023, “Promise” became the most streamed track on SoundCloud with 330 million plays.
It was the first single released by Jimin, and upon its release back in December 2018, it went on to become the most streamed track on SoundCloud in 24 hours.
It was only back in May when Jimin set his last record for becoming the fastest solo K-pop artist to reach 1 billion streams on Spotify (male).
Fellow bandmate Jungkook set this record just two months previous, but it took him 16 days longer.
As part of the band BTS, their music has been streamed a massive 31,960,000,000 times as of 3 March, making them the most streamed male group on Spotify.
In 2023, they were also awarded the following:
- Most followers on Instagram for a music group
- Most followers on Twitter for a music group
- Most followers on TikTok for a music group
They already held records for the most viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours, most streamed track on Spotify in the first 24 hours and becoming the first K-pop act to reach No.1 on the US albums chart.
