Seoul — BTS’ Suga, also known as Agust D, recently celebrated his upcoming birthday with a wonderful gift that only the BTS Army (fans of BTS) can give. BTS Army put Daechwita, the lead track from Suga’s 2020 mixtape, atop the US iTunes’ song sales chart. Fans of the K-pop idol decided to mark his upcoming birthday, March 9, with a “buying party” and succeeded in placing the single at the top of the chart in only six hours.

The Star reported that on Monday (March 1), music video views for Daechwita surpassed 200 million, doubling the number from July 2020. Suga became the first solo K-pop artiste to enter both the Billboard 200 and Hot 100, the main albums and singles charts respectively, with his second solo mixtape D-2.

The project also took the seventh spot on Britain’s Official Albums Chart Top 100, the highest position for a solo K-pop musician.
