When a foreign artist “attacks” on the US market, their hardest hurdle is radio stations.
However, recently, Jungkook has reached the top 15 on both Hot AC and Top 40 charts of American Top 40 Radio.
American Top 40 (AT40) is a countdown radio show of independent, international collaborations hosted by Ryan Seacrest on the weekly radio show One Air with Ryan Seacrest. It is one of the most listened to weekly radio programs in the world because it is broadcast on nearly 500 stations in the US and several other countries.
The AT40 is distributed by Premiere Networks (a division of iHeartMedia), and can be listened to on iHeartRadio, Tuneln and the AT40 app.
The single Jungkook collaborated with Charlie Puth ” Left and Right ” is having 9 consecutive weeks on both the Top 40 and Hot AC charts.
The song currently holds the 14th spot on both charts, making Jungkook the first Korean and K-pop solo artist to break into the top 15 on both charts.
