BTS’ Jungkook becomes the first male Asian to reach this Billboard milestone

On December 23rd, the latest update of the Billboard 200 chart ended, and BTSJungkook has remained inside the top for 6 consecutive weeks, becoming the first Asian male to reach this milestone, currently at the 41st position of the chart.

The album that secured this new record for Jungkook is titled ‘Golden’, it features a repertoire of 11 songs that have become very successful as is the case of ‘Please Don’t Change (feat. DJ Snake)‘ and ‘Closer to You (feat. Major Lazer)‘ that have also managed to stay for six consecutive weeks on the Billboard charts.

It was undoubtedly an excellent year for the idol’s solo career, as the success of his first personal album ‘Golden’ has led him to settle at the 14th position on the best-selling albums chart, not to mention that his song ‘Seven (feat. Latto)‘, is at the 19th position on the Global 200 chart.

Jungkook made sure to write a musical material that could keep him going during his absence, and it seems he succeeded, as his album continues to break records while he is doing his military service with his groupmate and friend Jimin in the ‘Companion Soldiers’ program.
