Hugh McIntyre of Forbes praises the BTS member by noting that a couple of weeks ago, Jin showed the world how beloved he is by his fans with an unexpected chart hit in the US. But now BTS's Jin is back with another hit, and he has gone on to double his wins on a specific Billboard ranking.

Due to this, Forbes noted BTS's Jin as the most successful male artist 'from his field.'

Although a relatively new chart, BTS's Jin has already been reaching milestones on the Billboard Hot Trending Songs chart, the chart was first introduced in October of 2021, and Jin has already made history as he is now so far the K-Pop male artist with the most hits on the chart.

"Jin's song 'Super Tuna' debuts on this week's Hot Trending Songs chart, Billboard's ranking of the most-talked-about tunes on Twitter in the previous tracking frame. The cut opens at No. 12, arriving as the third-highest start out of half a dozen debuts," Forbes further added regarding BTS Jin's prowess.

As of writing this article, male K-pop stars such as EXO's Kai, GOT7's Mark Tuan, BTS's Jungkook, and ASTRO's MJ have all gone on to debut on the Billboard Hot Trending Songs chart with their solos. But BTS Jin is still the only one who has two songs on the chart at once.

This is a historic event as BTS Jin's "Super Tuna" was only a special release as a birthday gift from himself to BTS's fandom, the ARMYs.
