The American business magazine “Forbes” focused on BTS V’s achievement.
Recently, Forbes reported on its official website, “V ruled over the Digital Song Sales chart with his single ‘Christmas Tree’.” V released “Christmas Tree” on December 24th last year. As the fifth OST of SBS-TV’s “Our Beloved Summer“, it is an attractive song with soft acoustic guitar melody.
According to MRC Data, “Christmas Tree” debuted atop the Digital Song Sales chart with just over 23,500 copies sold. Forbes pointed out the meaning. They explained, “V beat the runner-up bestselling tune, Gayle’s ‘ABCDEFU’ (11,000 units), more than twice over.”
He also set an unrivaled record in the holiday season song rankings. “Christmas Tree” topped the “Holiday Digital Song Sales” chart, which ranks the bestselling tunes in America that Billboard labels as “holiday”. Moreover, it was listed on Billboard’s main chart. “Christmas Tree” debuted at #79 on the “Hot 100”. This is the first time a Korean drama’s OST has entered this chart.
“Christmas Tree” drew attention from listeners around the world even before its official release. It set many records including No.1 on the Billboard Hot Trending chart. It also received favorable reviews for properly stimulating winter emotions. Meanwhile, BTS is currently on an official vacation. After taking a break, they will prepare for the Seoul concert to be held in March.
