Jung Kook has broken records and made history with his brand new chart-topping single “Seven.” The track, marketed as his debut solo single, earned an explosive entrance by debuting at No. 1 on the Hot 100. By doing so, the tune made Jung Kook one of only two South Korean soloists to achieve the momentous feat.
“Seven” owes its immediate success to massive sales, impressive streaming figures, and noticeable support from pop radio stations across the United States. While the track’s triumphant debut on the Hot 100 was celebrated, its appearance on the Pop Airplay chart further solidified Jung Kook’s position as one of the most powerful among his countrymen.
This is not the first time Jung Kook’s music has resonated with pop radio listeners. “Seven” marks the talented singer’s third entry on the Pop Airplay chart, following the success of his previous collaborations.
In July of last year, Jung Kook collaborated with Charlie Puth on the track “Left and Right,” which notched a peak of No. 11, narrowly missing out on a historic top 10 placement. Later in the year, Jung Kook returned with his own single “Dreamers,” which peaked at No. 39 on the 40-spot tally.
By scoring his third hit on the Pop Airplay chart, Jung Kook has reached a milestone that puts him in the same league as Monsta X, one of the biggest groups to emerge from South Korea. With three placements on the competitive list, Jung Kook now counts the second-most appearances on the Pop Airplay chart among all South Korean stars, matching the success of Monsta X. Only BTS, the globally acclaimed band to which Jung Kook belongs, surpasses both Jung Kook and Monsta X by an impressive margin, tripling the number of placements achieved by the runners-up.
Monsta X’s journey on the Pop Airplay chart began in 2019, and they maintained a consistent presence with one single per year until 2021. Hits like “Who Do U Love?” featuring French Montana, “You Can’t Hold My Heart,” and “One Day” all found their way onto the chart, showcasing the group’s popularity and appeal in the American market.
With a third Pop Airplay hit now in his discography, Jung Kook has passed South Korean girl group Blackpink, who have previously landed two placements on the tally. For a while, they were tied, but now the BTS star has pulled ahead, at least for the time being.
