In just 108 days,  BTS’ Jungkook’s Seven feat. Latto broke the record for the fastest song to reach one billion streams on Spotify. It has stood out among other songs by the BTS to become the second most-streamed K-pop song of all time.

This follows the singer’s December 15 release of the Standing Next To You performance video, which he co-wrote with Usher. The youngest member of the seven-piece K-pop boy band, Jungkook, is still influencing the international music charts despite taking a brief break for military service.

His song broke the previous 112-day record set by Miley Cyrus’s Flowers in August when it was released on July 14, 2023. Now that Seven has proven its worth, it has gained entry into the Spotify Billions club and been included in the official playlist.

It now stands alongside Taylor Swift’s Style, Harry Styles’ As It Was, Starboy by Daft Punk and The Weeknd, and Yellow by Coldplay.

With 36,648,305 monthly listeners, Jungkook’s solo listener count on Spotify has recently eclipsed that of his group, BTS.

Jungkook has overtaken his own band’s monthly listener count by 588,147, despite K-pop superstars BTS commanding 30,762,158 monthly listeners.

What Does this Achievement Mean for the BTS Crew?

Spotify has affirmed that the two most streamed songs of Summer 2023 are Seven by BTS’s Jungkook and Cupid (Twin ver.) by FIFTY FIFTY. 

This is a huge win for Jungkook and the entire crew as well. Globally, both songs have become incredibly successful. Since their release, the tracks have been deemed a commercial success. The music streaming service Spotify has issued a variety of lists featuring the songs that have been most popular this summer.

Meanwhile, On December 12, Jungkook and Jimin started their mandatory military service. This is after RM and V had already left. All of the BTS members are now completing their national duty as the last members to join; they are anticipated to come back together as a group in 2025.

It is predicted that Jin and J-Hope will finish their mission and return in 2024.
