GOT7's youngest member, Yugyeom, tops the world iTunes chart with his pre-release song "I Want U Around," featuring female soloist DeVita. The song is also one of the songs on his upcoming first solo album, "Point of View: U."


"I Want U Around" skyrocketed to number 1 in 35 countries worldwide, including Thailand, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Kenya, Brazil, Estonia, Poland, India, Chile, Paraguay, Israel, Trinidad and Tobago, Costa Rica, and Oman.

In addition, "I Want U Around" also took the number 1 spot on the charts of South Korean digital music service Genie when it was released and remained at the top until the "chart freeze" (the time between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. local time when real-time charts were not available).

About The Song "I Want You Around"

The music video garnered 250,000 views on YouTube, barely one hour after it was released, and 900,000 views within 19 hours. To say Yugyeom's solo debut received an overwhelming response from his fans all over the world would be an understatement. The single is one of the tracks from his debut EP that is scheduled for June 17.
