On the Global Excl. U.S. chart and the Global 200, “Left and Right” ranked No. 2 and No. 5, respectively. This ties BTS’s record for highest-charting solo record on both charts, and marks the highest ranking for a BTS member in a lead role.

Their No. 2 debut on the Global Excl. U.S. chart marks Charlie Puth’s first top 10 on this chart and Jungkook’s second – making him the first BTS member with multiple top 10 chartings. This ranking also ties Suga and PSY’s “That That,” which peaked at No. 2 in May, for highest-charting solo Global Excl. U.S. entry for a BTS member.

With 72.6 million streams worldwide, “Left and Right” lands at No. 5 on the Global 200, recording the first top 10 ranking for both Jungkook and Charlie Puth. The only other entry this high on the Global 200 by a BTS member is Suga and PSY’s “That That,” which also ranked in No. 5 this past May.

Right after its release, “Left and Right” swept iTunes charts around the globe, and earlier this week, the song made its debut on several of the United Kingdom’s Official Charts.

Congratulations to Jungkook and Charlie Puth!
