Spotify and Jung Kook paint the world ‘GOLDEN’ to celebrate the singer’s first solo album

The global popstar, Jung Kook, has set the world ablaze with the drop of his first solo album, GOLDEN. To celebrate and further fuel excitement around the highly anticipated release, Spotify is bringing fans closer to the global superstar and his music in new ways, from exclusive bonus content to viral takeovers.


There’s no denying Jung Kook’s Midas touch. After his single “Seven (feat. Latto)” became the fastest song to reach 1 billion streams in Spotify history, Jung Kook has again struck gold and reached yet another incredible milestone with GOLDEN. As of November 5, ten of the album’s 11 tracks are charting on Spotify’s Global Daily Top Songs, with “Seven (feat. Latto)” still topping the list at #1, and title track “Standing Next to You” following at #2. Amassing over 6.4 million streams on the day of its release, “Standing Next to You” became the highest new entry on the chart – a testament to his popstar power in captivating listeners worldwide.


To kick things off, Spotify and Jung Kook painted one of New York’s most renowned icons golden – almost literally. As published on X (previously Twitter), a silky CGI gold banner was seen unfurling from the top of the Empire State Building to reveal the album title GOLDEN. The activation was met with an outpouring of love for Jung Kook, igniting global conversations around the pop singer. Watch the full video here.

Meanwhile, fans worldwide were in for a treat as GOLDEN took over prominent billboards across major cities in motion and in 3D including New York City, Seoul, Tokyo, Jakarta, and Bangkok. PH ARMYs will be able to spot it in Manila soon, lighting the streets of EDSA Guadalupe on November 10-12.

“The popularity of K-Pop has grown by leaps and bounds, crossing borders and transcending language and cultural differences to unite fans from all walks of life,” said Jungjoo Park, Spotify’s Head of Music, South Korea. “With every release, fans have shown Jung Kook tremendous love on Spotify. We’re proud to be able to join them in celebrating the widely loved Jung Kook for his first solo album, helping him further expand his global presence as an artist.”


For more of the multi-hyphenate, Spotify has also rolled out K-Pop ON! bonus content to let fans discover more about Jung Kook and his GOLDEN moments. Watch Jung Kook rest and relax in a GOLDEN room made just for him, discover his personal ramyeon porridge recipe, and laugh along as the energetic bunny takes on the Payback Challenge.

“My solo album is officially coming out. It’s time for me to show all the things that I created while growing together with BTS. I worked really hard on (the album), and you can look forward to it. It’ll be good, and I hope you enjoy it on Spotify,” shared Jung Kook on the set of Spotify’s K-Pop ON!. And in a special message to ARMY, he said, “Thanks for being by my side. I’ll always cheer ARMY on too.”

Spotify’s continued efforts to connect Jung Kook with listeners across the globe have led to passionate response from fans, both old and new. In addition to spotlighting his previous releases in playlists such as Today’s Top Hits and K-Pop ON!, the This is Jung Kook playlist lets fans discover and enjoy the collective discography of his solo music. For his solo debut with the release of “Seven (feat. Latto),” fans have also been treated to bonus content on Spotify’s K-Pop ON! video podcast and YouTube channels.

3 things to look for to at OVERPASS: Kpop Concert on June 11

As seemingly infinite flow of Korean acts continue to fill big venues in the Philippines, OVERPASS: K-Pop Music Concerts offers a night of stellar performances with today’s best of K-Pop – EXO’s Baekhyun, Jeon Somi, and B.I!

Happening on June 11 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, OVERPASS brings together EXO-Ls, Sommungchis, and I.Ds for the ultimate fan gathering celebrating the excellence of K-Pop music in R&B, Pop, Soul, and Hip-Hop genres.

Baekhyun’s much-awaited return

After being officially discharged from his two-year military service last February, Phixos surely missed seeing the one-and-only Byun Baekhyun! Picking up from the release of his album “Bambi” in March 2021, the main vocalist of EXO is now unstoppable as he has been appearing in festivals around the globe immediately since his return.

Just imagine singing along to “Betcha” and “Candy” as Filo EXO-Ls finally reunite with their beloved Kyoong!

A multi-talented artist, Baekhyun is one of the busiest artists in K-Pop. Apart from EXO and its sub-units, he has also ventured in other acts such as joining the supergroup SuperM, debuting as an actor in “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo,” and finding massive success as a soloist. In fact, Baekhyun is the first artist since 2001 to achieve a million sales for his EP “Delight” and he then went on to receive his second million-seller with “Bambi.” Baekhyun also achieved the most “Best Male Artist” trophies after winning 3 years in a row at Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) history, a prestigious music awards show in South Korea.

Jeon Somi’s first visit to the Philippines

Best known for her viral tracks “DUMB DUMB” and “Birthday,” hitmaker Jeon Somi will finally come to the Philippines! OVERPASS marks the soloist’s very first visit to the country and Filo Sommungchis are in for a treat as their yearning to hear Somi live will finally come true.

Recently, her hit songs “What You Waiting For,” “XOXO,” and “DUMB DUMB” were featured in the new romcom series Netflix’s “XO, Kitty” which is currently one of the top streamed shows at the streaming giant.

B.I endless love and appreciation for PH I.Ds

Kim Hanbin (stage name: B.I) is indeed in love with his Filo I.Ds. In just a year, the rapper-producer has paid a visit to the Philippines twice – one for a fanmeeting last August 2022 and one for a solo concert last March 2023. OVERPASS will be the artist’s third solo visit in the Philippines.

The solo hip-hop act will be having his comeback this June 1 with the release of his second studio album “To Die For.” B.I has been performing the title track “Dare to Love” at various festivals prior to its official drop, and who knows, maybe the lucky audience of OVERPASS will be one of the first to hear the new tracks live!

Tickets for the OVERPASS: K-Pop Music Concert are available for purchase at TicketNet outlets nationwide and online at www.ticketnet.com.ph.

Ticket holders from each section will receive fan benefits ranging from souvenir cards, posters, lanyards, and even a chance to get a free album of the artists!

Gear up and get ready to ride the K-pop wave at OVERPASS! Hope to see you there, chingus!
