Since its release, fans and netizens couldn't stop raving about Jungkook’s genius production of the ballad and his soothing vocals, and how much they want it on paid platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music. One netizen posted "Why Jungkook's Still With You isn't on Apple Music *crying emoji*" (translated from Malay). Another one said "Women don’t want men. Women want Still With You by JK on Spotify and Apple Music" (hey, where's the lie?)
'Euphoria' also achieved new milestone as it recently surpassed 175 millions streams on Spotify, being the first solo song by a male K-pop Idol and by a BTS member to cross the mark. It also surpassed 20 millions streams on Genie, Korea’s second-largest streaming platform. Jungkook is the first and only BTS member who has reached over 20 millions streams for a BTS solo song on the platform, also is the only member to surpass more than 1 million unique listeners (ULs).
Currently, Jungkook is the only BTS member who has 2 of his solo songs in the Top 10 ‘BTS Popular’ songs on Spotify ie. Euphoria and My Time. The OST ‘Your Eyes Tell’ which he composed and wrote as well as 'Savage Love Remix' in which he participated as a vocalist are also on the list.
