With The Release Of The Astronaut, Jin Of BTS Has Tied This Record With PSY. Since his official solo debut with the single album The Astronaut, Jin has been lavishing the globe with his otherworldly presence.
Fans of BTS all over the world have responded positively to the song since its October 28 release, praising his “above par” voice and “sparkling” visuals.
The Astronaut Records
Jin’s first solo album debuted in several top spots on the UK’s Official Charts, most notably at No. 61 on the Official Singles Chart. He also climbed to number two on both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Billboard Hot 100 Digital Song Sales charts.
He is not the first member of BTS to achieve success on the Official Singles chart, but the fact that his debut solo effort is among the top ten makes his accomplishment all the more impressive.
Meanwhile, the group’s youngest member, Jungkook, surprised everyone by debuting at number 41 with the song “Left and Right,” a collaboration with Charlie Puth. Rosé of BLACKPINK’s On The Ground debuted at No. 43, making The Astronaut the third-highest song on the chart by any Korean artist.
Record With PSY
PSY, a veteran of the industry, shares the top slot with The Astronaut; his singles Gangnam Style, Gentleman, and That That all debuted at No. 61. BTS’ SUGA produced the most recent single and appeared on one of its lyrics.
The BTS member just got back from Argentina, where he and Coldplay performed The Astronaut as part of the Music of the Spheres tour stop in Buenos Aires.
