BTS’s Jimin Claims The Bestselling Song In America For A Third Consecutive Week

Music by South Korean artists has been taking over the world for the past few years, and more and more musicians from that part of the world have been busy scoring huge chart wins in the U.S. While these wins might be more frequent than they used to be, it is still notable whenever a South Korean musician hits No. 1 on a Billboard tally. It is even more impressive when they reach the top of a competitive list and then refuse to move.

This week, Jimin, one of the seven members of BTS, rules the Digital Song Sales chart for the third consecutive frame. He doesn’t debut in first place, and he doesn’t climb to No. 1. Instead, he continues to control the throne with his hit single, “Like Crazy.”

The superstar’s “Like Crazy” has now held the top spot on the Digital Song Sales chart for two consecutive frames. According to information shared by Luminate, the track sold just
under 14,800 copies in its second week of availability. Although it sold far fewer copies than in its debut week, it is still enough to keep it at No. 1.

Last week, “Like Crazy” opened atop the Digital Song Sales chart with more than 241,000 copies sold. That still stands as the largest sales sum of 2023, and it likely will for some time. That sum was the biggest since Taylor Swift’s “Anti-Hero” managed tens of thousands more in late 2022.

Amazingly, the success of “Like Crazy” doesn’t even tell the full story of Jimin’s reign atop the Digital Song Sales chart. Before his current champion debuted, he still ruled the ranking. Two frames ago, Jimin’s other cut, “Set Me Free Pt. 2,” opened in first place. It was then quickly replaced by “Like Crazy.” This week, “Set Me Free Pt. 2” is down at No. 35 on the ranking, holding on for a third consecutive turn, selling another 1,800 copies.

Thanks to its massive debut sales frame, “Like Crazy” started at No. 1 on the Hot 100 last week–at the same time it arrived on the Digital Song Sales chart. In doing so, Jimin made history as the first South Korean solo act to control what is often considered the most important songs chart in America.
