Jimin using combined streams to reach #1 on Global Spotify

JIMIN of BTS recently released his solo debut “FACE” with title track “Like Crazy.” Though, very quickly after release, fans were quick to note that the track’s streams on Spotify were linked to the English version of the song. Usually for two tracks to become linked, they have to be the exact same song, based on IRSC code, but this wasn’t the case here. 

After a few days, the track went on to reach #1 on the Global Spotify Chart with 6 million streams, but the very day after reaching it’s peak, the streams of the Original version and the English version were unlinked, causing “Like Crazy” to fall 13 spots to #14.

Twitter users were quick to call out the artist and his label for using combined streams to manipulate the Spotify chart during his debut week. 

Fans of JIMIN, though, alleged sabotage from Spotify, saying they didn’t want him at the top anymore and putting the blame solely on unsubstantiated dating rumors being Spotify staff and another K-pop artist.

Breaking news!! Rose caught with Spotify CEO at Hotel together. We believe they are just friends spending private time together at the hotel. This action does not represent any payola that Blackpink received 😂😂😂

2 + 2 = fish. Instead of begging for attention on the internet by acting worse than a middle schooler, try to get a grip of yourself and be serious for oncee


All same song with different version is always count as one in billboard n spotify since long time ago. Like lil nas old time roads, he collabs with various artist with different genre in same song, or savage love by jason derulo, and BTS moc drop original and feat with steve ak, dynamite etc.. all versions is always count as one streams n download. But the version will write on chart is the version that got highest points among the versions.but so funny people acted this is the first time a two versions from same song count as one or they legit being ignorance

flop = bp


I just know stiffsoo solo will be mid, as always, it’s their concept after all. The only thing the go all out is the budget so they can mediaplay it out 😌

WhatsThe Point

Breaking news: jeremy eleich is in south korea hanging out with yd usa ceo


We know what that means. Jimin doesn’t need the ceo of spotify, unlike a certain girl in a certain group who can’t sing or dance. 


Inorganic achievement yikes

go to sleep suzy!


Blink twinks are so jobless that they cry about Jimin being successful on pannkpop LMAOOOO


The way people are threatened by this man is absolutely hysterical lol. Ya’ll are just mad that he beat your fave idols and is making history as we speak.

He’s literally doing what others are doing minus the radio support and payed playlisting, which a lot of other idol groups are doing BTW. Spotify merges songs automatically based on a few factors.

It’s not his fault that he is successful and making records everywhere while ya’ll and your faves stay as nobodies.


So he was the one sleeping with Jeremy, makes sense.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
