BTS's Jeon Jung Kook, known mononymously as Jungkook, is the baby of the boy group. However, that does not mean that the BTS maknae is any less talented. As one of the main vocalists of the group, Jungkook has made an impact of his own.
Not only was he the most searched K-Pop male idol in 2019 and 2020, but Jungkook was also ranked first among top K-pop stars for three consecutive years on Tumblr. Jungkook's solo live broadcast on V Live earlier this year set a new record for the most real-time viewers.
Jungkook's songs are a testament to the fact that the singer is more than just his BTS fame. The following are some of his solo songs that show why Jungkook stands out.
Jungkook's best solo music
#1 - Begin
While writing the lyrics for the track 'Begin' from the album 'Wings,' RM, aka Namjoon, was looking to present Jungkook's perspective. RM said in an interview that the only time he saw Jungkook look stressed was when the rest of BTS themselves were going through a rough time. RM used that incident to capture Jungkook's spirit.
#2 - Still With You
"Still With You" is Jungkook's first official solo song outside BTS's discography, which was released during the Festa 2020 Party last year. The jazz-inspired ballad features gentle acoustic tones and drum beats, and Jungkook sings about wanting to reclaim a lost love. Produced by Jungkook and Pdogg, who regularly collaborates with BTS, the song conveys Jungkook's feelings toward ARMY, the BTS fanbase.
#3 - Euphoria
In another song from "Wings," Jungkook's Euphoria captures the essence of the group before they became a global phenomenon. With an innovative music video and lyrics penned by a team including RM, Euphoria became one of the best-selling songs at its release. Euphoria also resonated with fans since its chorus was easy to sing along with.
#4 - My Time
"In My Time" Jungkook croons about his feelings and emotions of going from a trainee to an adult and not having the time to enjoy things that most people of his age do. Co-written by RM and Jungkook, "My Time" was the ninth track of "Map of the Soul: 7" and saw Jungkook maturing beyond his maknae label.
#5 - Decalcomania
In "Decalcomania," Jungkook sings entirely in English. Jungkook composed the song with help from Namjoon and released the track on Twitter on his 22nd birthday. The track features his mellow vocals. However, it is only available in its demo version. Hopefully, Jungkook will release a full version of the track soon.
