“Jungkook participated in the official soundtrack and will be part of the opening ceremony of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022,” BTS said on November 12 via their official Twitter account. On the opening ceremony stage, he is anticipated to dazzle. On November 20 at 7:30 PM IST, the opening ceremony will be place at Qatar Al Beit Stadium. On November 21, 2022, the FIFA World Cup in Qatar will get underway.
Previous activities of Jungkook:
We are eager to hear his vocals in the distinctive track that has been a fan favourite for years and we hope he brings his aura to the music video as well as the song. He was previously spotted in Qatar filming a video, and many fans assumed it was for the music video of the FIFA 2022 soundtrack.
Right and Left:
The song “Left and Right,” a collaboration between Jungkook and American singer-songwriter and pop star Charlie Puth, has made it to both the Billboard Global 200 and the Billboard Global 200, according to the most recent chart (as of November 12) published by Billboard. The entry of the potent audio source into nine specific Billboard charts—Billboard Global (other than the US), Adult Pop Airplay, Adult Contemporary, Canadian Hot 100, Canadian Hot AC, Canadian CHR/Top 40, Philippine Song, and Malaysian Song—was demonstrated.
Within 33 days of its release on the international music platform iTunes, “Left and Right” topped the iTunes Top Song Charts in 106 different countries (regions) and held the top spot on the Worldwide iTunes Song Chart for four consecutive days. In particular, Jungkook demonstrated his status as a global artist by appearing on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Left and Right” for “17 weeks straight”—a record for a K-pop idol.
