BTS member Jimin continues to break records on this popular music-buying platform, reaffirming his dominance in the music industry. His latest achievement makes him the first artist worldwide, with three songs reaching No.1 on iTunes.

Jimin’s track “With You” has made history by becoming the fastest song to reach No.1 on iTunes in 100 countries. This achievement is particularly remarkable as it includes real-time purchases upon release without prior pre-orders. What’s more, Jimin holds the top three positions for the fastest songs to achieve this milestone, with “Set Me Free Pt.2” and “Like Crazy” securing the second and third spots.

The Global Record

Jimin’s global reach extends further, making him the only artist worldwide to achieve the coveted No.1 spot on the iTunes all-genre song chart in all 119 available countries on the platform. Impressively, he accomplished this feat not once but twice with “With You” and “Like Crazy.” Furthermore, Jimin holds the record for a Korean solo artist with the most songs reaching No.1 on iTunes in major markets, including the USA, UK, and France, totaling six songs achieving this extraordinary feat.

Jimin’s Record with “Filter”

Jimin’s solo performance track “Filter” from BTS’ “MOTS:7” album continues to make history on iTunes. Even before his official solo debut, “Filter” held the record as the B-side track with the most No.1s in iTunes history, boasting 117 countries. On October 15, “Filter” achieved another milestone by topping the Germany iTunes all-genre song chart, marking its 118th country to reach No.1. This accomplishment further extends Jimin’s record as the B-side track with the most No.1s on iTunes in history. Jimin is the first and only artist globally with three songs reaching No.1 on iTunes in at least 118 countries: “My You,” “Like Crazy,” and the latest addition, “Filter.”
