BTS member Jungkook's solo tracks are enjoying immense popularity worldwide, leading to the K-pop star's hip-hop R&B song "My Time" securing the No. 1 spot on Amazon's international best seller chart as of Tuesday (KST). "My Time" is a track from BTS's fourth full-length album "MAP OF THE SOUL : 7," released last February.
Another of his solo releases "Euphoria" ranked second. The electronic dance music song is from BTS's repackaged album "LOVE YOURSELF 結 'ANSWER'" dropped in 2018.
Last December, "Euphoria" exceeded 190 million streams on the world's largest music streaming platform Spotify and is now the third most streamed Korean song by a solo artist on the platform. "My Time" has surpassed 95 million streams.
BTS debuted in 2013 with the album "2 COOL 4 SKOOL." The seven-piece group is the first Korean act to earn a Grammy nomination in the best pop duo/group performance category. The Grammy Awards, one of the most prestigious music awards ceremonies in the world, will take place March 14.
