BTS’ Jungkook is on a remarkable journey of setting new records and conquering charts. With a series of back-to-back digital singles, he’s solidifying his status as a Billboard Singer, and his latest release, “TOO MUCH,” is yet another testament to his success.

“TOO MUCH” on Billboard Hot 100

The news broke on October 31 that Jungkook’s newly released single, “TOO MUCH,” featuring The Kid Laroi and Central Cee, has soared to the top 50 of the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. This achievement follows the earlier news of Jungkook securing three songs in the top 10 hits on the UK charts, marking a historic milestone for Korean solo artists in the UK.

Jungkook’s Three UK Chart-Toppers

The three songs that propelled Jungkook into the UK Official Singles Chart’s top 10 are worth celebrating. His debut solo single, “Seven,” featuring American rapper Latto, clinched the number-one spot. His second digital single, “3D,” featuring American rapper, singer, and actor Jack Harlow, secured the number 5 position. Surprisingly, “TOO MUCH,” featuring The Kid Laroi and Central Cee, made a stunning entry into the top 10 list on October 28, 2023.

A Milestone Echoing Psy’s Success

Notably, more than a decade ago, Psy made history as the first Korean soloist to chart in the UK with his global sensation, “Gangnam Style,” debuting at number one. He continued his success with “Gentleman,” another top-10 hit. Jungkook’s achievements in the UK charts are a proud moment for K-pop and Korean artists, following in Psy’s groundbreaking footsteps.

“Standing Next To You” from the “GOLDEN” Album

The excitement doesn’t stop there. Fans can look forward to the release of “Standing Next To You,” one of the title tracks from Jungkook’s upcoming album, “GOLDEN.” The album is set to drop on November 3, 2023. “GOLDEN” will include a diverse array of tracks, such as “Closer to You” (feat. Major Lazer), “Yes or No,” “Please Don’t Change” (feat. DJ Snake), “Hate You,” “Somebody,” “Too Sad to Dance,” and “Shot Glass of Tears.”

Additionally, both explicit and clean versions of “Seven” (feat. Latto) and “3D” (feat. Jack Harlow) are part of this highly anticipated release.

Jungkook’s musical journey continues to impress, with his “TOO MUCH” success and the eagerly awaited “GOLDEN” album adding to his list of remarkable accomplishments.
