BTS’ Jimin has achieved a remarkable milestone in his solo career. His exceptional singing talents and versatile dance performances have made him a standout artist in the music industry. In 2023, Jimin embarked on his solo journey, releasing multiple music videos that have all surpassed the 100 million views mark on YouTube in the same calendar year.

The BTS member’s incredible achievement sets him apart as the first and only Korean soloist to have all of his recent music video releases in a single calendar year reach the coveted milestone of 100 million views on YouTube. This remarkable feat underscores his immense popularity and artistry as a solo artist.

The Trio of Music Videos

The three music videos that contributed to this milestone are “Like Crazy,” “Set Me Free Pt.2,” and the collaborative single “Vibe” with BIGBANG’s Taeyang. Jimin’s solo journey commenced with his collaboration with Taeyang, resulting in the music video for “Vibe” crossing the 100 million views mark on YouTube.

Following this successful collaboration, Jimin released his debut solo studio album titled “Face,” featuring a total of six tracks. Two of these tracks, “Like Crazy” and “Set Me Free Pt.2,” each had their own accompanying music videos, and both achieved the remarkable milestone of 100 million views on YouTube.

What makes this achievement even more exceptional is that all three music videos were released within the same calendar year, solidifying Jimin’s status as the only artist to accomplish such a feat.
