Last week, BTS member V effectively endorsed Alaina Castillo’s “just a boy” by playing the song during a stream. Thousands of fans – as well as Castillo herself – took note of the high-profile plug.
As of 4/25/20, both artists have songs on Spotify’s US and Global Viral 50 charts. “just a boy” is #25 on the US listing, benefiting from both the V shout-out and the release of her new “the voicenotes” EP. V’s recently released “Sweet Night” meanwhile grabs #50 on the US viral chart.
The two meanwhile hold adjacent positions on the Global Viral 50, with “Sweet Night” at #40 and “just a boy” at #41.
To date, “Sweet Night” boasts over 20 million global streams on the platform. “Just a Boy” has nearly 3 million.
