BTS continues to soar with their latest release, “Stay Gold,”!
“Stay Gold,” the pre-release track of BTS’s fourth Japanese studio album “Map of the Soul: 7 ~ The Journey ~,” was released at 6 p.m. KST on June 19. As of 9 a.m. KST on June 20, the song has gone on to top the iTunes Top Songs charts in 82 regions including the U.S., U.K., Brazil, France, and India.
This is a new record for BTS members’ Japanese releases, almost doubling their previous record of 43 regions set by “Lights” last July. The song also entered real-time music streaming charts in Korea soon after its release, making this the first time that an original Japanese BTS song has entered Korean real-time music streaming charts.
BTS is set to release “Map of the Soul: 7 ~ The Journey” on July 15, and the album will feature a total of 13 tracks. It was also recently announced that BTS had topped Oricon’s album sales rankings for the first half of 2020, making them the first foreign artists in 36 years to top Oricon’s albums chart for the first half of the year.
Congratulations to BTS for the amazing achievement!
