BTS Jungkook made waves on Billboard's Hot 100 this week, securing an impressive milestone. He now shares a historic achievement by matching BLACKPINK's record, establishing himself as the K-Pop act with the third-highest cumulative weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, alongside the renowned girl group.
In July, Jungkook etched his name in history with the debut of his solo hit Seven (featuring Latto) at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100, Global 200, and Global Excl. U.S. charts. This groundbreaking achievement marked him as the first Korean soloist to simultaneously claim the top spot on all three charts.
The journey for Seven has been remarkable, maintaining its presence on the Hot 100 for a solid 10 consecutive weeks, currently residing at No. 53. Jungkook's solo venture has now equaled BLACKPINK’s record for the third-highest cumulative weeks on the Hot 100 among K-pop artists, surpassed only by his own group BTS and PSY. Excluding BTS group releases, both Jungkook and BLACKPINK have accumulated a notable 28 weeks each on the Hot 100 across all their songs.
Prior to Seven, Jungkook's chart presence included a week in 2022 with his 7 Fates: CHAKHO OST track Stay Alive (produced by Suga), followed by a substantial 17 weeks with his collaboration with Charlie Puth, Left and Right.
Seven continues its global impact by securing the No. 2 position on both Billboard’s Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. charts this week. Additionally, the track maintains a strong standing at No. 18 on Billboard’s Pop Airplay chart, reflecting consistent plays on mainstream Top 40 radio stations across the United States.
