‘Slow Dancing’ has been warmly received, staying on Billboard’s ‘Global Chart (excluding the US)’ and ‘Global 200 Chart’ for ten weeks. V has also demonstrated his strong presence as a soloist by charting on Spotify’s ‘Global Artist Chart’ for 100 days, a feat only achieved by two other K-pop solo artists before him.

Additionally, V sparked anticipation among fans by teasing a snippet of a new song on his social media on November 21, aligning with the winter mood and adding to his growing acclaim.
