Jungkook and Latto Celebrate Scoring First No. 1 on Hot 100 With ‘Seven’

The ‘Euphoria’ singer becomes the second BTS member to reign the Billboard Hot 100 chart following Jimin, as the ‘Big Energy’ raptress is ‘forever grateful’ for the collaboration.

AceShowbizJungkook has reached a new milestone in his solo career. The K-Pop idol’s new single “Seven” featuring Latto (formerly known as Mulatto) has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.

It marks the 25-year-old’s first time to rule the chart as a soloist. He is the second BTS (Bangtan Boys) member with a Hot 100 leader following his groupmate Jimin, who reigned the chart after his song “Like Crazy” launched at No. 1 back in April.

Jungkook’s previous high on the Billboard Hot 100 was when Charlie Puth‘s “Left and Right” featuring him hit No. 22 in July 2022. His own song “Stay Alive” also spent a week on the list No. 95 in February last year.

The “Euphoria” singer has posted six other Hot 100 leaders as part of BTS. The seven-piece group, consisting of RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook, reached the peak with “Dynamite” (2020), a remix of Jason Derulo‘s “Savage Love” (2020), “Life Goes On” (2020), “Butter” (2021), “Permission to Dance” (2021) and “My Universe” with Coldplay, which was also released in 2021.

“Seven”, meanwhile, also gives Latto her first Hot 100 No. 1 of her career. Her highest-charting song prior to this was “Big Energy”, the lead single from her second studio album “777”, which rose to No. 3 in April 2022.

Marking the feat, Jungkook expressed his gratitude via BTS’ official Twitter page. ” ‘Seven (feat. Latto)’ debuted #1 on the HOT 100! We’re always grateful for your love and support #BTSARMY,” the account posted on Monday, July 24.

BTS’ official Twitter account reacted to Jungkook’s first No. 1 on Hot 100.

Latto took to her Instagram Story to celebrate the Hot 100 leader, writing, “Oop am I a bora girl now? Forever grateful!! Thanks JK for trusting me! Amrypots up +10000.”

Latto celebrated the feat via her Instagram Story.

“Seven” also launches at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts (dated July 29). It blocks Jason Aldean‘s “Try That in a Small Town” on both the Hot 100 and the Billboard Global 200 charts. The country music star’s controversial song debuts No. 2 on both lists.
