According to The Independent News, the K-pop artist was able to achieve the milestone even with an "unprompted b-side." So, it is truly an impressive feat for BTS, especially the Jungkook.
The single titled, Euphoria, is the track of focus in these reports. It was also revealed that it is now the "third most-streamed" piece on Spotify under the "Korean soloist" category.

As noted by All Kpop, BTS' Jungkook, along with his new solo, has been able to obtain over 1 million "unique listeners" on Genie, which is a South Korean streaming platform. Not to mention, HBO's series material titled, Euphoria featured the titular track on its finale.

BTS comes in second to the Sorry singer since they only totaled to 150 weeks as opposed to Justin Bieber's 163 weeks. Even so, it is still a huge accomplishment for the group, given that they have been able to surpass Taylor Swift and Rihanna as the artists only summed to 28 and 21 weeks, respectively.
