Jimin's "With You" sets new records on Melon

Jimin and Sungwoon's 'With You' set numerous records on its debut day, such as achieving the fastest 100 #1s on iTunes worldwide (breaking the record previously held by BTS' Dynamite), accumulating the highest number of #1s for any song in the first 24 hours in the history of iTunes, being the fastest Korean OST to reach #1 on Japan and UK iTunes, being the longest-charting Korean OST at #1 on UK iTunes, being the fastest OST by an Asian soloist to achieve an iTunes all-kill on all 8 of the largest music markets and being the highest-peaking song by a Korean soloist on the all-genre Genius chart, among other impressive records [read more here]. 

On Spotify, it was the biggest and highest debut by a K-drama OST on Spotify Global at #5 (with only 10 hours of tracking), where it stayed for two days, thereby setting yet another record for the longest-charting K-drama OST in the top 5 of Spotify Global charts. This record extended to becoming the biggest debut by a K-drama OST on Spotify Weekly Global chart as well.

On Apple Music, the song charted in 42 countries and regions, becoming the first and only song to chart in these many regions on the platform's charts, and it broke the record for the highest debut for a Korean OST on Worldwide Apple Music Song chart, despite having only 10 hours of tracking.

'With You' did not only set new records on international music platforms on its first day of release, but it also posted outstanding record-breaking results on the domestic charts in South Korea as well. 

Despite having been released at 11 PM, the song still managed to achieve the highest top 100 debuts on Melon (ranking 7th on this chart) among all songs sung by BTS members, the only other song by BTS with a higher debut being the group song 'My Universe.' 'With You' also debuted at #93 on the Melon Daily chart with just one hour of tracking, which is wildly impressive!

'With You' also amassed the most number of unique listeners (over 26.5k) and the most number of likes in the first hour (over 19.1k) among all other songs by the members of BTS.

Prior to the release, various words were occupying 4 of the top 5 trending searches on Melon, with all words being related to Jimin, the OST, and the drama. This shows how much the release of the song was being anticipated.

With You also debuted on Top 100 songs on VIBE and peaked at #1 on BUGS real-time chart.

On YouTube, the music video quickly rose to the #1 trending video on YouTube worldwide, being the #1 trending video in 21 countries simultaneously, and it stayed at #1 for two full days following its release.

Without any promotions and with such a short tracking period of less than a day, 'With You' still managed to be heavily impactful on all the major music streaming and buying platforms, speaking to the impact of Jimin as an individual artist. The song is still continuing to record impressive records as the days go by. Stay tuned for more updates!
