“Like Crazy” by Jimin debuts at #1 on Billboard Hot 100 chart. It makes history by becoming the first song by a Korean soloist to achieve this! According to Billboard, after BTS became the first all-South Korean group to lead the Hot 100, with “Dynamite,” Jimin becomes the first South Korean soloist to hit No. 1. Previously among South Korean solo artists, PSY reached a No. 2 best with “Gangnam Style” for seven weeks in 2012. “Like Crazy” dethrones “Flowers” by Miley Cyrus which took 2nd place after eight weeks at #1 from January when it debuted.
“Like Crazy” is the 21st Hot 100 No. 1 with the word “like” in its title. “Walk Like a Man,” by The 4 Seasons, became the first, in 1963, while, until this week, “Girls Like You,” by Maroon 5 featuring Cardi B, was the most recent, in 2018.
