Jung Kook’s ‘Never Let Go’ Is Here: Stream It Now

Jung Kook is back! The BTS superstar unveiled his latest single, “Never Let Go,” on Friday (June 7).

According to HYBE, the new track is dedicated to BTS’ beloved fans, affectionately called ARMY, and conveys “a sincere message to never let go of each other.” “Never Let Go” is Jung Kook’s first solo music since the release of his 2023 debut album, Golden, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

In 2023, Jung Kook broke a series of records thanks to his Latto collaboration, “Seven.” The song 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. Over on streaming, “Seven” was the fastest song to reach one billion streams in Spotify history.

Jung Kook and his fellow BTS members Jin, RM, SUGA, J-Hope, Jimin and V are currently serving in the South Korean military, which mandates an 18-month military enlistment for all able-bodied men by the time they turn 28. A few of the members have pursued various solo projects amid their service, and the full group is planning to reconvene for band activities in 2025.
