On Friday, November 3, Jung Kook unleashed his debut solo album, "Golden," and it's poised to make a significant impact on the Billboard charts. The album's success is attributed to the two highly popular singles released prior to its launch, and the artist is now setting his sights on a third hit from the project.\r\n\r\nSimultaneously with the release of "Golden," Jung Kook introduced "Standing Next to You" as the album's third official single. This move was destined for greatness given the singer's immense popularity and his track record with the previous two singles. But Jung Kook isn't leaving anything to chance.\r\nJung Kook's Debut Solo Album\r\nOn Monday, November 6, he pleasantly surprised fans by unveiling an EP centered around "Standing Next to You." This EP contains a collection of remixes, each offering a fresh perspective on the upcoming hit. The compilation includes the original version, an instrumental rendition, a full band recording, and remixes with various labels such as Slow Jam, PBR&B, Latin Trap, Holiday, and Future Funk.\r\n\r\nThe objective of this EP is to encourage fans to stream and purchase these new versions of "Standing Next to You" while still enjoying the original track and its music video. For charting purposes, all consumption activities related to the song, regardless of the version, are consolidated, significantly boosting the track's performance upon its chart debut. This practice is commonplace among major music industry figures, and both Jung Kook and BTS have employed it in the past.\r\n\r\nWhen Citigroup CEO Jane Fraser Announces Corporate Overhaul, Concerns Arise\r\n\r\nWhile it's almost certain that "Standing Next to You" will make a strong entry on the Hot 100 chart in a few days, the exact position it will secure upon its debut remains uncertain. Jung Kook embarked on his solo career with the song "Seven" in collaboration with rapper Latto in mid-2023, which remarkably debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100. Following that, he teamed up with Jack Harlow for "3D," which also reached the top five.
