BTS's Jimin continued his remarkable success on major Billboard charts for 24 consecutive weeks, achieving unprecedented popularity on American music streaming platforms.

Jimin broke records on the American music streaming service Pandora with over 51 million streams, making him the Korean solo artist with the most streams on the platform, second only to Psy.

Furthermore, Jimin consistently set new records for monthly listeners, surpassing 872,000 on September 9th, establishing a new record for the highest monthly listeners by a K-pop solo artist in history. This achievement is truly outstanding, almost double the previous record held by the group BTS, with 453,000 listeners. Pandora, one of the top three music streaming platforms in the United States along with Spotify and Apple Music, is only available in the U.S., and Jimin's remarkable success on this platform solidifies his overwhelming popularity and influence in the local market.

In addition, Jimin's solo track "Like Crazy," which surpassed 30 million streams on Pandora on September 13th, has maintained its long-term success by staying on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 24 consecutive weeks, achieving the remarkable feat of becoming the first Korean solo artist to reach number one and remaining in the top ranks for six months since its debut.

According to the latest Billboard charts as of September 16th, "Like Crazy" has achieved historical sales figures among Korean solo artists, securing the 68th spot on the "Global 200" chart and the 41st spot on the "Global (excluding the U.S.)" chart, successfully maintaining its presence on both charts for 24 consecutive weeks.
