While PSY’s “Gangnam Style,” still hold the rank of highest No. 1s in 86 countries, V’s “Sweet Night,” succeeded PSY’s “Gentleman” and is placed at No. 2, making him the youngest and second Korean soloist to accomplish the record.

“Sweet Night” not only swept the first place in the iTunes chart in 82 countries, it also placed at No. 1 on the Top Songs in Europe, No. 10 in the UK’s Single Top 100 Official Chart, No. 37 in UK’s The Official Big Top 40′ chart.

“Sweet Night,” is a soft ballad like track which sounds as sublime as a soothing lullaby. The track encapsulates V’s deep vocals that harmonize beautifully with the track’s warm melody and the prominent acoustic guitar riffs.

The lyrics are simple but sincere and evoke a sense of melancholia which makes the track heart rending and heartwarming all at once!
