BTS V ranks first among K-pop solo artists in the Spotify follower increase rankings in September

BTS V showed the strongest solo power by ranking first among K-pop solo artists in the Spotify follower increase rankings in September.

According to K-POP RADAR, V added 342,289 followers in September, ranking first in terms of the growth rate of solo artists.

V recorded an increase of 4.76 million followers in 2022 alone, ranking first in terms of the increase in Korean solo artists’ followers in the first half.

V’s Spotify official account was first created in 2016 when he sang the OST “Even If I Die, It’s You” of his debut drama “Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth”. Later, in March 2020, he released his self-composed song “Sweet Night” (OST of “Itaewon Class”) then surpassed 1 million followers in July of the same year.

V, who has surpassed 9.77 million followers as of Oct 2nd, is attracting listeners with a sudden rise on Spotify after the OST “Christmas Tree” released in December last year achieved explosive success both at home and abroad.

V, who firmly established his solo positioning as the “Trustworthy OST King”, quickly entered the top three in the solo rankings with only three OSTs without a solo album or mixtape, proving his strong music power.

As of Oct 3rd, 2022, there are only three K-pop solo artists who have surpassed 9.7 million Spotify followers, including BTS J-Hope, RM and V.

Since BTS began Chapter 2 by announcing the start of their solo activities, V has been active as an all-rounder artist through various channels.

On his personal Instagram account, which was the first step in his solo career, he set two new Guinness World Records and became the fastest person in the world to reach 50 million followers.

In June this year, he attended the Paris Fashion Week show of the global luxury brand Celine and received hot responses as “the show’s highlight”. In July, “In the Soop: Friendcation”, his healing travel entertainment show with Wooga Family, topped the Disney+ TV show rankings.

In September, he became the first cover model to be featured solo on six Vogue Korea covers and recorded the highest number of copies sold in K-pop history on global sales sites and group purchases in China. He made his debut as a special radio DJ through MBC’s radio show “Kim Eana’s Starry Night”. He also became an example by receiving a commendation from Goyang-si for “conscientious taxpayer”. Fans around the world are paying keen attention to V’s trending moves.
