Further, ‘That That’ has now also debuted at number 2 on Billboard’s Global Excl. U.S. chart, and at number 5 on the Global 200 chart. Not only are these PSY’s first-ever entries on these two charts, but they also mark the highest peaks on these charts for any BTS member’s solo projects.
For the Global Excl. US entry, this is the peak for any BTS member’s solo work, as fellow member Jungkook’s ‘Stay Alive (Prod. SUGA of BTS)’ debuted at number 8 in February. Meanwhile, the Global 200 entry with ‘That That’ is also the highest-charting solo entry by a BTS member, as well as the first solo top 10 entry, (following ‘Stay Alive’ debuting at number 13 in February).
Congratulations to PSY and BTS’ SUGA!
