In the "Spotify Ball-terview," the "Golden Maknae" of BTS shared his creative songwriting process, his most memorable moments, and what he hopes listeners will remember when they listen to his newest solo digital single.

A little over three minutes into the interview, Jungkook was asked who the first person he shared "Seven" with was, and he replied, "Taehyung. I played it for him first after recording it."

Jungkook went on to share that even though he and Taehyung – more popularly known as V – have different tastes in music, they often send each other their songs when they finish creating them.

According to Jungkook, V likes calm music and cool songs.

The music video for Jungkook's solo digital single "Seven," featuring rapper and singer Latto, was released Friday and has since amassed over 59 million views. As of press time, the music video ranks No. 1 on YouTube's Trending for Music list.

Jungkook's summer song was also released on Spotify in two versions: the clean version and the explicit version.

According to Soompi, BTS' Jungkook became the first artist, aside from Taylor Swift, to surpass 15 million first-day streams for a song on Spotify.

On Wednesday, Jungkook departed Seoul, South Korea, via Incheon International Airport to perform at the "2023 Summer Concert Series" of "Good Morning America" at New York City's Central Park Friday.

There, the 25-year-old South Korean idol showcased the first live performance of "Seven" on the same day the digital single dropped on music platforms.
