Jungkook seems to break every social media platform. His posts on Twitter and Weverse caused both apps to crash.
Jungkook also just broke a Billboard record.
Back in 2014, a K-pop artist named Taeyang released a single, “Eyes, Nose, Lips.” The song charted on the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart for 21 weeks. The song also won Song of the Year at the 2014 Mnet Asian Music Awards.
Jungkook’s solo song “Euphoria” came out in 2018. It is one of BTS’s most popular songs and showcases Jungkook’s vocal ability. On Aug. 13, 2019, the song re-entered the chart at. No. 20.
This gave the song a total of 22 weeks on the Billboard World Digital Song Sales charts making Jungkook the longest-charting solo male K-Pop idol on the chart. This broke Taeyang’s record and cemented Jungkook as one of the most popular K-pop idols in the world.
On his birthday, Jungkook thanked his fans for their support on Weverse. In his post, he hinted that he would release something later that day.
“And I always put up cover songs on my birthday. Unfortunately, I couldn’t do it today. I want to give you something else as a thank you. I’ll upload it a bit later. Haha,” he wrote in the post.
A few hours later, Jungkook posted a selfie thanking fans and then uploaded a video clip. The video is short and is only one minute and 19 seconds long. The image in the video is a black screen, but fans can clearly hear a keyboard and Jungkook’s voice. The song lyrics are entirely in English and showcases Jungkook’s lower register.
