BTS member Jimin continues to receive love and support from his devoted followers, especially those in the United States. On Tuesday, the idol’s track called “Filter” made it to the U.S. iTunes Chart.

The tally listed numerous BTS tracks such as “Dynamite,” “Life Goes On,” “Dope” and “Butter,” which currently holds the No. 1 spot. As of this writing, Jimin’s “Filter” is the only solo song from the K-pop group to enter the latest U.S. iTunes Chart.

Currently, “Filter” is listed at No. 30. The said track previously nabbed the top spot of the said music chart on July 13, 2020.

Not only that, “Filter” is also dominating Amazon Music as it remains one of the top ranking songs on the Best-selling Song list for 2021. It also maintained its position as the highest-ranking K-pop solo song on Amazon’s Best Seller-International and Best Seller Songs categories.

In an interview with Spotify, Jimin revealed that he was the one who conceptualized the “Filter” song.

“Filters can be the things within a camera application, or social media, but it can also mean people’s perspective or prejudice. I took these various meanings and expressed it into the song of how I want to present myself to the world in many different ways,” the BTS member revealed.

“I think I’ll be able to show a new side of me that’s very different from my previous tracks, ‘Serendipity’ and ‘Lie,’” Jimin further said.

Meanwhile, BTS member Jimin shared with Rolling Stone how he adjusted to all the changes brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I still have a series of negative thoughts about the situation. You know, ‘Why are we in this situation?’ You know, ‘What are we doing?’ And I didn’t want to acknowledge or admit or face the fact that we can’t see our friends and can’t do the things that we had been doing,” the “Butter” singer stated.

Jimin also talked about whether or not he would still like to be part of BTS when he is 40 years old. The South Korean songwriter-dancer shared he could not imagine what he would do without his co-members – Jin, Jungkook, J-Hope, RM, V, and Suga.

“Even before we debuted my goal was to continue to work with these people, to continue to sing with these people. I think when I become older, and I grow my own beard, I would like to think that at the end, when I’m too old to dance, I would just like to sit on stage with the other members and sing and engage with the fans. And communicate with the fans,” BTS member Jimin told Rolling Stone. “I think that would be great, too. So I’d like to keep this going as long as I possibly can.”
