“Standing Next to You” is not just any song; it’s the spotlight track from Jungkook’s solo album, “Golden,” which dropped in November last year. This isn’t the first time Jungkook has left his mark – it’s actually his fifth solo song to join the elite 400 million streams club. The previous hits include “Seven (feat. Latto),” “3D (feat. Jack Harlow),” the Charlie Puth collaboration “Left and Right,” and the ethereal “Euphoria.”

But that’s not all – Jungkook’s solo success extends to the global stage. “Standing Next to You” made a jaw-dropping debut on Billboard’s Hot 100, claiming the No. 5 spot. And guess what? It’s been camping out on the chart for a solid 15 weeks, matching the impressive streak set by “Seven.” The recent chart update on Feb. 24 saw the song jump 20 spots to claim No. 61. Talk about staying power!

Jungkook’s album, “Golden,” is also holding its ground on the Billboard 200, securing the No. 137 spot for an astounding 15th consecutive week. That’s not a typo – this album debuted at No. 2 and refuses to budge. Clearly, Jungkook’s music is not just a flash in the pan; it’s a sensation that’s here to stay.
