BTS, the ‘military period’ is not over yet… Billboard is still hot
The group BTS showed off its irreplaceable influence by hitting the global charts with new songs and previous works.

According to the latest chart (as of July 13) released by Billboard, an American music media outlet, on the 9th (local time), Jimin's pre-released song 'Smeraldo Garden Marching Band (feat. Loco)' ranked 88th on the main song chart 'Hot 100'. His incredible popularity can be felt in the fact that he broke through the 'Hot 100' based on the number of music videos and music video views without any official activities after the release of the music source. This song also achieved good results on various detailed charts, including ‘World Digital Song Sales’ and ‘Digital Song Sales’.

The title song 'Like Crazy' of Jimin's first solo album 'FACE', released in April last year, rose significantly in the rankings. This song ranked 60th in 'Global (excluding the United States)', up 71 places compared to the previous week, and settled at 108th in 'Global 200', up 58 places.

Jungkook is showing steady popularity on the Billboard charts. The solo single 'Seven (feat. Latto)' released in July of last year and the title song 'Standing Next to You' from the solo album 'GOLDEN' released in November 2023 are still in the 'Global 200'. In 'Global (excluding the U.S.)', the digital single 'Never Let Go' released in June this year ranked on the list, following 'Seven' (41st) and 'Standing Next to You'.

Meanwhile, Jimin will simultaneously release all songs from his 2nd solo album 'MUSE' and the music video for the title song 'Who' worldwide at 1 PM on the 19th.
