The music industry has always been a battleground for artists and fans alike, with chart rankings and album sales often seen as markers of success. However, the recent turn of events involving Jimin, a member of the globally popular K-pop group BTS, and his song “Like crazy” on the Billboard charts has left fans outraged and planning legal action.
Jimin’s solo song “Like crazy” initially debuted at the top spot on the Billboard HOT 100 chart, a prestigious accomplishment for any artist. Fans, known as the BTS Army, celebrated the achievement and expressed their pride and support for Jimin’s solo work. However, their joy was short-lived as the song plummeted to the 45th position in the following week, marking the steepest fall in the history of the music industry.
Adding to the controversy, Jimin’s album “Face,” which had debuted at #2 on the Billboard World Albums chart, also experienced a sharp drop, falling to the 16th position. This sudden and drastic decline in chart rankings has left fans bewildered and questioning the integrity of the Billboard charts.
In response to these events, the BTS Army has taken to social media with the hashtag #BillboardIsOverParty, expressing their disappointment and frustration. Many fans have accused Billboard of manipulating the charts and called for a fair and transparent system that accurately reflects the popularity of artists’ music.
