V of boy band BTS topped music charts around the world with his latest single "Fri(end)s."

V's new single, released while he is still completing his military service, topped the iTunes Top Song charts in 87 regions around the world on Saturday morning, a day after the song's release on Friday.

The song had already topped the Worldwide iTunes Song and European iTunes Song charts on Friday, just hours after its release.

"Fri(end)s" also landed at No. 2 on Japanese music chart Oricon's Daily Digital Single Ranking on Sunday.

"Fri(end)s" is a "sweet love serenade fit for the rosy vibe of spring," according to V's agency BigHit Music. The pop R&B track is based on the idea of wanting to end a friendship and develop a romantic one, playing on the word "friend" and "end."

The singer is currently in the Korean Army completing his mandatory military service, which he is expected to complete in June 2025.
