BTS V’s OST ‘Christmas Tree‘ has been taking the top spot for a long time on the global music platform Shazam Japan chart, continuing its strongest music power.
Released on Christmas Eve last year, when the world was covered in waves of carol songs, ‘Christmas Tree’ surprisingly ranked on the Billboard ‘Hot 100’ chart for the first time in Korean OST history. It is despite fierce competition with the legendary carol songs.
In Japan, the world’s second-largest music market, ‘Christmas Tree’ debuted at No. 1 on various music platforms in Japan, creating a sensation based on BTS V’s unrivaled popularity.
On the Shazam Japan ‘Top 200’ chart, ‘Christmas Tree’ maintained its top spot 22 days after its release. So, it is demonstrating its digital song power. Also, as a solo artist after Psy, BTS V added a new record of recording more than 300,000 Shazam in 23 days, the shortest period.
The OST ‘Christmas Tree,’ released in Japan on January 13, topped the iTunes charts about two hours after its release. It holds the number one spot for the longest time among K-pop songs.
‘Christmas Tree’ was the first K-pop solo song to rank first in all Amazon Japan’s Best Seller Song, Hot New Release, and Movers & Shakers categories.
The OST topped the Oricon Music Store daily chart, as well as ‘Mora’ for the second consecutive day. Also, it topped the ‘mu-mo’ download daily chart for the first time. So, it continues to break records from the first day of its release.
‘Christmas Tree’ ranked the highest in addition to Japanese songs on Amazon Music Japan’s trending list. It is the hottest latest music list in Japan, where music of various genres is popular as much as the vast music market. Also, it ranked on Spotify Japan’s chart, proving BTS V’s presence as the most popular solo artist.
