In the latest week, “Left And Right” can still be found at 47th on the Billboard Hot 100, 4 positions higher than last week. However, haters are still inclined to dismiss the success of the song. 

In particular, under a Twitter post that stated the aforementioned achievement, a netizen commented “Puth carried”, implying that the song’s success was all due to Charlie Puth’s popularity, and that Jungkook’s appearance never helped the song.
