“King things!” — BTS’s V Makes History with ‘FRI(END)S’ as First Song Surpassing 100 Million Spotify Streams in 2024

Even amid his military service hiatus, BTS’s V, also known as Kim Taehyung, continues to make waves in the music world.

His song ‘FRI(END)S‘ has become the first track released by a K-pop artist in 2024 to achieve 100 million streams on Spotify. This marks Taehyung‘s 7th solo song to reach this milestone.

Not only has ‘FRI(END)S‘ seen success in streaming, but it has also sold over 100,000 units in the US within three weeks of its release, making it his 8th song to achieve this feat.

As of April 2024, ‘FRI(END)S‘ holds the record for the biggest debut in both first-day and first-week streams among Korean soloists and K-pop acts in 2024.

The song itself, a pop soul R&B track, delves into the theme of elevating a friendship to a deeper level, cleverly hinted at by its wordplay in the title.
