Seven makes history on UK official singles charts
In a remarkable achievement, back in July, Jungkook made history by achieving the highest-ranking debut of any song by a Korean soloist on the United Kingdom's Official Singles Chart (widely known as the United Kingdom’s equivalent of Billboard’s Hot 100 which is the streaming charts in the United States), entering at an impressive No. 3. Even months later, the song continues to maintain its strong position within the top 40. On September 22, it was officially announced by the Official Charts that Seven had spent its 10th consecutive week on the Official Singles Chart, holding the No. 34 spot.
This accomplishment marks a significant milestone as Seven becomes the first song by any Korean soloist to spend its first 10 weeks in the top 40 of the Official Singles Chart. Jungkook further solidified his status as only the second Korean soloist ever to chart a song for 10 weeks in the top 40, following in the footsteps of PSY.
Additionally, Seven maintained a strong presence at No. 74 in its 10th consecutive week on the Official Streaming Chart, underscoring its enduring popularity and success on the UK charts.
