“Sweet Night,” had previously ranked at No. 1 on iTunes in 88 countries including France, the Philippines, Argentina, Botswana, Cyprus, Egypt, and the Netherlands.

The phenomenal feat created history after beating PSY’s record of holding the No. 1 position in 86 countries for 8 years with his whimsical number, “Gangnam Style.”

On June 21, the track from the Itaewon Class OST topped on Namibia’s iTunes Top Songs chart which made V the youngest and only K-pop solo artist to have achieved this feat. Besides, this also makes it one of BTS’ top 3 songs with the most No.1’s on iTunes after “Black Swan,” in 97 countries and “ON,” in 91 countries.

“Sweet Night” first gained popularity soon after its release and made V the only BTS member to win a record streak with the track  being ranked at No. 1 in the UK and US iTunes Top Song chart at the same time.
