As a member of BTS, Jung Kook sets records for fun. The K-pop star is doing it solo, too.
Until now, PSY had the record with two top 10s — “Gangnam Style” (peaking at No. 1 in 2012) and “Gentleman” (No. 10 in 2013).
It’s Jung Kook’s third top tier effort, after “Seven” featuring Latto (peaking at No. 3) and Jack Harlow collab “3D” (peaking at No. 5), both from 2023.
Released ahead of Jung Kook’s debut solo album Golden, due out Nov. 3, “Too Much” is LAROI’s third and Central Cee’s seventh U.K. top 10, including his 10-week reign with “Sprinter.”
As a member of BTS, Jung Kook has secured four top 10 singles: “Life Goes On” (peaking at No. 10); and “Dynamite,” “Butter” and Coldplay team-up “My Universe,” all peaking at No. 3. On the national albums survey, BTS has collected five top 10s, including two No. 1s (Map of the Soul – Persona and Map of the Soul – 7).
At the top of the pile is Kenya Grace’s “Strangers” (via FFRR), which wins a tight race for its third week at No. 1.
“Strangers” narrowly led by midweek chart, ahead of Cassö, RAYE and D-Block Europe’s “Prada” (Ministry of Sound). And that’s how the chart week ended, with the bouncy dance track “Prada” unchanged at No. 2.
The top three is closed out by a resurgent “Cruel Summer” (EMI) by Taylor Swift, up 14-3 in its 20th week on the chart. “Cruel Summer” heats up thanks to a new live cut, released to coincide with box-office blockbuster The Eras Tour Film.
Finally, Troye Sivan has another reason to smile as ”One of Your Girls” (Polydor) lifts 17-11. Lifted from his third and latest album, Something to Give Each Other, ”One of Your Girls” becomes the Australian pop artist’s highest-peaking U.K. single as a solo artist.
