History maker and BTS’ favorite V has smashed yet another record. The singer has broken an eight-year-old record held by PSY to become the only Korean Soloist with No.1 song charts in 88 countries.
PSY became the only Korean soloist to ever hold this record with the most No.1s on its charts. His mega-hit “Gangnam Style”, ranked No.1 in a total of 86 countries.
On May 24, V made headlines when he matched PSY’s record with “Sweet Night”, a solo song for the Itaewon Class OST. “Sweet Night” broke PSY’s record in merely two months without prior promotions from the singer or his team.
BTS’ V aka Kim Taehyung sung ‘Sweet Night’ wholly in English. This is the only song by V that is completely sung in English. The song has been trending on social media since its release.
The Korean heartthrob now holds the record for the only Korean soloist with the most No.1 on iTunes in 88 countries.
The BTS Army has been rejoicing since the news came in. From congratulatory messages to tweets lauding the singer for always breaking records, the celebrations haven’t stopped. ARMY also trended #HistoryMakerV on Twitter to celebrate all that he has achieved in such a short time.
Throwback 5 years ago when Psy gave the mic to Taehyung and tae sang shyly….. isn't it looks like the mic symbolizing as the record and Psy officially passing the throne to taehyung ?? #HistoryMakerV#SweetNightToTheWorld@bts_twtpic.twitter.com/QmkpsFR0Se
