Jimin's Single 'Filter' Still Charting On Billboards And Other US Charts A Year Since It's Release
Jimin of BTS is wowing his fans and other K-pop bands after it was revealed that his solo song "Filter" is still being streamed after a year from its release.
According to reports from Naver.com, Jimin is becoming a force to reckon in both in Korea and globally for topping the US Billboard World Digital Song chart for over 49 weeks now.
"Filter" holds the longest-charting digital song for an artist. It is also in the top 10 of Billboard World Digital Song Sales for 39 weeks now, breaking the record for the longest Korean solo song in Billboard history.
Furthermore, Jimin's "Filter" ranks 1st in Amazon Music International Bestseller and 8th in all bestsellers in the digital music songs section, and its popularity has been unchanged since a year ago.
Upon the release of "Filter," it was quick to outsell many solo singles from K-pop idols and even from group bands. "Filter" has already exceeded 100 million streams in Spotify in the shortest time, breaking records as it surged even more in popularity.
Jimin's solo single also broke a record on iTunes 110, Apple's very own streaming music platform. "Filter" is the first solo song by BTS that ranked first on the streaming giant's charts. Currently, the song still charts on iTunes, much like in Amazon and the Billboards chart.
In other news, Jimin will be appearing on "MTV Unplugged" this coming February 23. He will join his bandmates as they perform several of their hit songs in a "stripped down" version.
There is a big possibility that Jimin will perform "Filter" during the special episode of "MTV Unplugged," gracing BTS fans around the globe with a brand new version of the hit single.
"MTV Unplugged" has released a promotional clip of the show featuring BTS's Jin. Fans are hoping to get more promotional clips of each of the band's members.
