Jin's 'Super Tuna,' which could only be listened to on 'SoundCloud' and 'YouTube' initially, was officially released on all streaming platforms last October, along with Jin's other solo songs 'Abyss' and 'Tonight.' Upon release, it immediately dominated iTunes charts worldwide.
Right after the release, it topped the iTunes charts in numerous countries starting from Lithuania, Finland, Malaysia, Vietnam, Turkey, Brazil, and more, achieving No.1 in 39 countries.
