BTS Jimin Sets New iTunes Record with ‘Smeraldo Garden Marching Band’

BTS member Jimin has rewritten iTunes history.

Jimin’s track “Smeraldo Garden Marching Band” reached number one on the iTunes Top Songs Chart in 110 countries and regions within just 13 hours of its release, setting a new 2024 record for the fastest time to achieve this milestone.

The pre-release track from Jimin’s second solo album ‘MUSE’, which was unveiled on June 28 at 1 PM KST, achieved number one in 100 countries within 4 hours and 50 minutes. By June 29, it had topped the charts in 110 countries, breaking the 2024 record for the fastest time to reach this milestone, and eventually reached number one in 111 countries, including the Bahamas.

Particularly notable is the song’s success in the US and UK, where it became the fastest 2024 release to reach number one, showcasing Jimin’s unparalleled popularity in these key markets. The song achieved an “all-kill” by topping the iTunes charts in all eight major music markets globally, marking the peak of his iTunes domination. It maintained its number one position on the Worldwide and European iTunes Top Songs charts for three consecutive days.

This achievement adds to Jimin’s impressive record of having six solo tracks that have topped iTunes in over 110 countries: “Like Crazy” (119 countries), “With You”, “Closer Than This”, “Filter” (118 countries), “Set Me Free Pt.2” (113 countries), and now “Smeraldo Garden Marching Band” (111 countries). This makes him the first solo artist to have six tracks reach number one in more than 110 countries, solidifying his pride of place in K-pop.

Meanwhile, anticipation is high for Jimin’s second solo album ‘MUSE’, set to be released on July 19. Jimin has showcased his talent as a singer-songwriter by participating in the writing of six out of the seven tracks on the album and taking on the role of producer for two tracks, following his previous work on his first album ‘FACE’.
