Amid the social media debate that Jungkook has become bigger than BTS with his solo career, the K-pop icon recently bagged a record-breaking feat as his single, Seven, overtook Miley Cyrus‘ Flowers to reach the fastest one billion streams on Spotify. Did you also know that JK could overthrow Taylor Swift’s dominance on Billboard, with the success his debut mini album, Golden? Learn more by scrolling down!
Jungkook, a member of BTS, has been breaking records ever since his debut. Recently, appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s chat show, the ‘Standing Next To You’ crooner, who has been thrashing records ‘Left & Right’ revealed that though he did expect a warm welcome to his inaugural single, he didn’t know it would grow up to become a chart-buster, bagging the top spot at the Billboard Hot 100. Now, with the release of Golden last week, Jungkook stands another chance to take over the streaming chart, and with ARMYs by his side, nothing is impossible for BTS‘ maknae.
Taylor Swift has had a huge impact on the culture of pop music. She has dominated every music chart. The singer who just released her album 1989 (Taylor’s Version), broke the record of the most Song of the Year Grammy Nominations this year. She received seven nominations. This woman’s power is unmatched!
What if we told that the biggest Kpop icon, Jungkook and Miss Americana Taylor Swift could have an unintentional clash on the Billboard chart? Yes, that’s right! Golden and 1989 (Taylor’s Version), two of the biggest pop names, have been competing in sales. This is a true fan battle we didn’t even know we had in our 2023 bingo card, as we’re as much an ARMY member as we are a swiftie.
Taylor Swift’s 1989 (Taylor’s Version) album, which sold 240,279 copies, topped the Billboard 200 chart last week and this week. While many assume that Miss Swift will continue to dominate the Billboard 200 chart, Jungkook’s Golden is making a strong play to take the top spot. With 202 344 units sold, he is slowly trying to break even more records. This could mean a more competitive battle with Swift’s colossal albums.
Currently, Jungkook is neck-to-neck with Taylor Swift, and JK is only 1 spot behind by 37,935 units, making him the crown prince. Although this may seem significant, the tables could turn at any time considering both albums have sold 200,000 copies. The final figures will be revealed on November 18.
