The South Korean star released ‘Promise’ on December 31, which reportedly attracted a staggering 8.5 million plays within 24 hours.
It’s a strong take-down of the previous record, which was achieved by the 4.9 million streams that Drake attracted with Duppy Freestyle last May. His effort was a diss track which acted as a direct response to a song from Pusha T.
After being released, Jimin’s debut track reportedly held on to the top spot on SoundCloud’s Top 50 and Hot & New charts for 48 hours.
So far, it has more than 15 million plays – with the top percentage of them coming from South Korea, the US, Vietnam, Indonesia and Japan.
Meanwhile, BTS saw in 2019 with a performance of ‘Mic Drop (Remix)’ in Korea.
Kitted out in red and black clothing, the ‘Love Yourself: Answer’ boyband unleashed highly-choreographed moves as they sang the hit. At the end of the performance, Suga swapped a mic drop move for a scroll that read ‘BTS – Happy new year ARMY’ in the Korean alphabet, Hangul.
