Excitement is an understatement when it comes to how the BTS ARMY, aka the fanbase for the K-Pop group, BTS, feels right about now!
Jimin from BTS dropped his first solo song, “Promise” and the song was a HIT, receiving an incredible amount of recognition worldwide!
After SIX YEARS of waiting, the pop-star finally got his BIG solo break! His 3-minute, 21-second track, broke a HUGE record on Soundcloud, that was once held by hip-hop artist, Drake!
According to Forbes, Soundcloud confirmed that Jimin’s first solo track “Promise,” was streamed 8.5 million times in just 24 hours! It broke the record for the best first-day debut ever on Soundcloud!
The Canadian hip-hop artist held the record for his track “Duppy Freestyle,” that gained a lot of recognition and hype for being a diss-track towards Pusha T. It however, only got 4.9 million streams in the first 24 hours.
The Korean artist didn’t just surpass Drake’s record, he blew it out of the water, AND there was NO PROMOTION!
Guess K-Pop is really out here making noise in the music industry worldwide!
