Jimin makes history as the First Artist in the World to have 3 songs achieve #1 on iTunes in at least 118 countries

Jimin has been dubbed the 'King of iTunes' for his numerous impressive records on the globally popular music-buying platform, records which he started to achieve even before he officially made his solo debut. In effect, he has positioned himself as a force to be reckoned with.

For example, he holds the record for the fastest song to hit #1 on iTunes in 100 countries with 'With You', only considering songs bought in real-time upon release with no prior pre-orders. In fact, in this aspect, he holds the top 3 positions for the fastest songs on this ranking, second song being 'Set Me Free Pt.2' and third one 'Like Crazy'. 

Additionally, Jimin is currently the only artist in the world who has managed to achieve #1 on the iTunes all-genre song chart in all the 119 countries that are available on the iTunes platform, not with just one but two songs ('With You' and 'Like Crazy'). 

He is also the Korean solo artist with the most songs reaching #1 on iTunes in the USA, UK, and France, as well the Korean soloist with the most songs reaching #1 on iTunes in over 100 countries (6 songs).

'Filter,' his hit solo performance track from BTS' 'MOTS:7' album, already held the record as the B-side track with the most #1s in iTunes history (117) even before Jimin officially debuted as a soloist, and the song has extended this record with a recent achievement. 

On topping Germany iTunes all-genre song chart on Oct. 15, it became the song's 118th country to achieve this feat and Jimin extended this record as the B-side track with the most #1s on iTunes in history.

He also extends his record as the first and only artist in the world with 3 songs reaching #1 on iTunes in at least 118 countries. Only one country remains for him to have a third iTunes all-kill, again another 'first in the world' record!

Congratulations Jimin!
