Agust D, also known as Suga of BTS, received a birthday present only the band’s fans can give.
They have put Daechwita, the lead track from his 2020 mixtape, atop the US iTunes’ song sales chart.
His global fans decided to mark his upcoming birthday, March 8, with a “buying party", and succeeded in placing the song at the top of the chart in only six hours.
Music video views for the song surpassed 200 million on Monday (March 1) as well, doubling the number from July 2020.
With his second solo mixtape D-2, he became the first solo K-pop artiste to enter both the Billboard 200 and Hot 100, the main albums and singles charts, respectively.
The project also ranked No. 7 on Britain's Official Albums Chart Top 100, the highest position for a solo K-pop musician. – The Korea Herald/Asia News Network
