“Like Crazy” contrasts lively melodies with Jimin’s mournful tone, expressing empty emotions against a backdrop of intense synth and drum sounds.

“Like Crazy” is the first by a Korean solo artist to debut atop the Billboard “Hot 100” since the chart’s inception in 1958. Additionally, “FACE” broke sales records on its opening day, selling over 1 million copies, and in its first week, surpassing 1.45 million sales, making Jimin the first solo artist in Hanteo Chart history to do so.

“Like Crazy” secured the 3rd spot in the “Global Top K-Pop Songs of the Year” category in Spotify’s “2023 Wrapped year-end summary” campaign announced on Nov 30th. On the latest Billboard charts (week of Dec 2nd), it secured the 59th position on the “Global Excl. US” chart and the 109th position on the “Global 200” chart. This marked its 35th consecutive week in the rankings.
