Jung Kook‘s Golden tops this week’s new music poll.

Music fans voted in a poll published Friday (Nov. 3) on Billboard, choosing the pop icon’s re-recorded album as their favorite new music release of the past week.

Golden brought in 88% of the vote, beating out new music releases from Olivia Rodrigo, The Beatles and more.

Jung Kook is the final member of BTS to release a full-length solo album. Golden, featuring the singles “Seven” (with Latto) and “3D” (with Jack Harlow) among its tracklist, arrived on Friday.

In a new interview with British GQ, the K-pop star spoke about recording without his bandmates by his side: “While working on the album by myself, and performing on stage alone, [I noticed] things about myself that I was unaware of — the good points and the areas I’m lacking in,” Jung Kook said. “In terms of music, I found myself realizing, ‘Oh I can do these kinds of things as well, huh?’ or ‘Ah, this is something I can work on.’ I found myself missing the members [of BTS] quite a bit.”

He noted that ARMY will likely love the song “Standing Next to You.” While recording the track, he says, “it was so tiring that I did feel my soul almost leaving my body, but the process itself was extremely fun.”


Trailing behind Golden on the poll is Rodrigo’s “Can’t Catch Me Now” off of The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes original motion picture soundtrack, with 6% of the vote.
