With ‘Sweet Night’, BTS’s V Scores The Second-Bestselling Song In The U.S
BTS member V's new single “Sweet Night” has sold over 11,000 copies in its first tracking frame.
After a few weeks ruling the Digital Song Sales chart in the United States with tracks featured on their new album Map of The Soul: 7, BTS is back with a new tune. But this week, it is BTS’s V who has bagged the second position in the most popular digital songs in the US.
According to a report in Forbes, BTS member V’s new single “Sweet Night” has sold over 11,000 copies in its first tracking frame. This feat marks BTS’s V’s first top 10 on the list on his own. BTS member V’s ‘Sweet Night’ was defeated by none other than The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights,” whose 16,000 copies were sold taking its total sales count to almost 177,000.
Notably, V’s ‘Sweet Night’ — which has managed to beat two of the biggest names in the American market — is one of three new singles that will start off their time inside the top 10 on the Digital Song Sales chart.
BTS member V has now entered in the top 10 on the Digital Song Sales chart nine times as of now this year. That’s a huge accumulation of wins on the sales tally, especially considering the fact it is still the third month of the year.
V’s latest single “Sweet Night” was released as an OST for the drama “Itaewon Class,” which stars V’s good friend Park Seo Joon, whom he met in 2016 when they acted together in the drama “Hwarang.”
The program started airing at the beginning of 2020 and the full album dropped this past Friday, alongside “Sweet Night.”
