BTS Jungkook lit up his popularity in the United States with a new record

The World Music Awards (WMA) recently announced through the official account that ‘Left and Right’, a collaboration between Jungkook and Charlie Puth, sold 100,000 units in the United States.

In addition, Jungkook is a Korean solo singer who sold 100,000 copies in the shortest period of time in the United States and delivered a great achievement in writing a new K-pop record.

‘Left and Right’ was found to have sold more than 100,000 units in the United States in 9 days, realizing the popularity of BTS’ “golden maknae”. 

Previously, in April 2020, Jungkook’s solo song My Time sold more than 100,000 units in the United States in 57 days of release, the shortest period among K-pop idol solo songs.

Also, in March 2021, Jungkook’s solo song ‘Euphoria’ was the ‘first’ among K-pop male idol solo songs in the United States to sell 500,000 copies, boasting the status of a global vocalist.

In addition, Jungkook achieved a new record of selling 100,000 copies of his solo song ‘Stay Alive’ in the US as the ‘first’ and ‘only’ for a Korean solo OST.

In particular, “The Time Difference”, “Euphoria” and “Stay Alive” have shown Jungkook’s strong global influence and power in that they are Korean songs without any promotional activities.  

Jungkook’s solo songs also rocked the Billboard’s main single chart HOT 100 as ‘Time Difference’ took 84th place, his collaboration song ‘Waste It On Me’ took 89th place, ‘Savage Love’ took 1st place, and ‘Stay’ was ranked at the 22nd place. 

In addition, Jungkook’s “Stay Alive,” which was released in February, was the first Korean webtoon OST “The First” and entered the Billboard “Hot 100” at No. 95.
