In a video posted to Spotify’s Instagram account on Monday (Dec. 18), Jung Kook finds his plate-shaped plaque honoring the milestone underneath a pile of his favorite foods — fittingly, seven of them. Among the BTS star’s picks are soy sauce eggs, banana milk, tuna kimbap, shrimp crackers, turtle chips, japchae and castella.

“Producer Bang Si-Hyuk sent a song to me to listen. It was so great. I thought, this is such an amazing song, what if I mess it up?” Jung Kook recalled of the song’s inception. “I wasn’t working on an album, but after listening to ‘Seven,’ I came out of a break. We rushed to record the music, shoot the music videos, and album photos. Since ARMY have been waiting for so long, we worked very fast.”

He continued, “Because I felt the song needed a rapper — Latto has a great voice and cool presence — so, we reached out to her and everything worked out.”

Latto even sent in a clip to thank Jung Kook for putting her on the song and allowing her to “make history” with him. “Seven” became the fastest song to reach 1 billion streams in Spotify history,  achieving the record in 108 days since it was first released.

It’s hardly the only record Jung Kook’s Latto collaboration has broken, as it landed upon its release at No. 3 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart, published July 21, for the highest-charting debut by a solo Korean act. Additionally, “Seven,” launched at No. 1 on both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts (dated July 29). The song marked the first leader on the lists for a member of BTS as a soloist, as well as Latto’s first No. 1.
