BTS’ V has made headlines again but for a completely different reason.

It so happened that Kim Taehyung was credited for a particular song on the popular streaming platform, Spotify. However, the catch here is that this song was not sung by the artist!

The BTS member who is currently fulfilling his military duties along with the rest of the members of the K-pop group was mistakenly credited for a song that belongs to a different artist.

The miscredit issue!

It was on May 27, 2024, when a few fans of V noticed that he was credited for a song titled ‘OK’ on Spotify. This raised curiosity among the BTS Army because there was no prior announcement from Kim Taehyung or BigHit Music regarding the release of any new single. It was only upon listening to the song they realized that the song actually belonged to some other artist. That is why several of them took to social media, tagged Spotify, and asked the platform to correct the mistake as soon as possible.

Other achievements for V

BTS member V has set the record straight with his debut solo album, ‘Layover.’ His track ‘Slow Dancing’ (Piano ver.) has already surpassed 100 million streams. Now, the latest that we know is that ‘Layover’ has become the first album by Kim Taehyung to have reached 100 million streams on Spotify.

Layover has also become the fastest album by any Asian artist to have reached excellent streaming numbers. As for V, he has accomplished this milestone in just 258 days! With this, Tae Bear has also broken an earlier record made by NewJeans with their album titled ‘Get Up.’ ‘Layover’ was released on September 8, 2023, and featured V’s beloved dog, Yeontan, in several covers of the same album and its music videos.
