All tracks from Jimin's first solo album, 'FACE,' have sold over 100,000 units in the U.S., including the instrumental track 'Interlude: Dive.' 

This success further solidifies his massive popularity in the U.S., where he is affectionately known as 'Jimmerica' (Jimin+America). In June, the 'FACE' album reached 500,000 units in sales, earning a gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). This is a groundbreaking achievement as it is the first Korean solo album to do so, the first non-English album by an Asian solo artist, and the first EP by a Korean solo artist to reach this milestone.

The title track 'Like Crazy' from the 'FACE' album qualified for RIAA platinum certification in August 2023, although the certification was granted in December due to a delayed application by the agency. Other solo tracks from BTS albums, such as 'Filter' (700,000 units), 'Serendipity Full Length' (800,000 units), and 'Lie' (820,000 units), have also qualified for RIAA gold certification.

The pre-release track from 'FACE,' 'Set Me Free Pt.2,' and the 'Fast & Furious 10' OST 'Angel Pt.1' are nearing 500,000 units in sales. Additionally, 'Vibe' has reached 275,000 units, while 'Promise' and 'With You' have each reached 100,000 units, and 'Closer Than This' has reached 125,000 units in sales. In total, 13 tracks have surpassed 100,000 units sold in the U.S., showcasing Jimin's exceptional music power.
