With their pre-release single “Pink Venom”, BLACKPINK became the first Kpop girl group to top the Billboard Global 200 Chart for 2 consecutive weeks.

“BLACKPINK’s ‘Pink Venom’ adds a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200, as the South Korean act’s first leader on the list drew 108.4 million streams (down 49%) and sold 7,000 downloads (down 81%) worldwide in the Aug. 26-Sept. 1 tracking week,” says Billboard.

BLACKPINK also took the top spot on the Billboard chart last week, rewriting the top ranking of Kpop girl groups. With this, they have broken a personal record, as their previous title, “Lovesick Girls”, which was released in October 2022, landed at No.2 on the Billboard Global 200 chart and No.22 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
