Following his recent Guinness World Record as the Fastest Korean Solo Artist to reach 1 Billion streams on Spotify, Jimin has now set two additional significant records on the platform, further highlighting his popularity and demand.

First Korean Solo Artist to Reach 1 Billion Streams in a Single Calendar Year

On June 14, Jimin became the first and only Korean solo artist to accumulate 1 Billion streams on Spotify within a single calendar year. What’s astonishing is that he accomplished this feat in just 164 days, or approximately 5 months and 13 days. It’s important to note that he achieved this record halfway through the year, implying that his final count for this record will be even more substantial. As of June 14, Jimin’s Spotify profile has surpassed 1.2 Billion streams, securing another record as the Fastest Korean Solo Artist to reach 1.2 Billion Streams on the platform. He achieved this in just 415 days, surpassing fellow BTS member Jungkook’s previous record by 72 days.

Unprecedented Success in a Short Time

Out of the 1.2 Billion streams Jimin has accumulated over 415 days, a staggering 1 billion of them are from this year alone, which is a remarkable achievement considering it is only halfway through the year. It took him 393 days to reach 1 Billion streams across all credits, but he accomplished the same feat in just 164 days this year. These records highlight the rapid progression of Jimin’s solo career and the tremendous success he has achieved. They also raise anticipation for his future projects and further solidify his position as one of the most successful Korean soloists in history.

Surpassing 2.1 Billion Streams

When combining all his solo songs released under his own name and those included in BTS’ discography before his official solo debut, Jimin has now surpassed a staggering 2.1 Billion streams. This outstanding milestone showcases the immense impact and popularity he has garnered both domestically and internationally.

Jimin’s solo debut has undeniably been the most successful among all Korean soloists in history, as evident from the multitude of records he has set domestically and internationally. His achievements demonstrate his rapid growth as a soloist and raise excitement for his future endeavors.
