BTS’s Jin keeps making fans happy with new releases. In a span of one month, he has dropped two smash hits that are polar opposites of each other.
One of them is his first OST, a beautiful ballad “Yours,” and another is a laid-back trot song about fishing titled “Super Tuna.” Both songs demonstrated great worldwide success.
With the release of “Yours,” Jin proved himself as a very popular artist in Japan. He set multiple records in just the first day of release doing things no one ever managed to achieve before. It’s still charting #2 on Viral Top50 on Spotify Japan.
Yours by Jin has now charted at #2 on Japan’s Spotify Viral Top 50 Weekly Chart for 2 consecutive weeks now. 🔥

The same success is happening with “Super Tuna” in Japan.
Jin is now the first K-pop soloist to debut on Billboard Japan Top User Generated Songs Chart. Moreover, he already has two entries – “Yours” and “Super Tuna.” The chart demonstrates the love of the public, and Jin is only the third Korean male act in history to debut on the chart after BTS and TXT.
