BLACKPINK has reportedly made 11 songs, including solo tracks, chart in HOT 100.
According to the release of the U.S Billboard Chart on September 26th (local time), “Shut Down” – the title track of BLACKPINK’s 2nd full album “BORN PINK” entered the Main Single Chart ‘HOT 100’ (dated October 1st) at No.25. The song was also reported to top Billboard 200 on the previous day. Billboard Chart said, “This is the highest ranking for a debut in the Weekly Chart this time”.
HOT 100 and Billboard 200 are called the two main charts of Billboard. It adds up physical and digital sales volume of singles, streaming figures, radio broadcast figures, and YouTube views. Since a single can only rise in this chart if it is played a lot in the U.S, it is considered the most difficult one to enter among Billboard charts. Among Korean singers, only BTS holds the record of ranking #1 on both Billboard 200 and HOT 100 at the same time. Other artists who topped the Billboard 200, such as Super M (2019) and Stray Kids (2022), have yet to enter the HOT 100.
Although BLACKPINK has not reached the TOP 10, the girl group has recorded the 3rd highest record among K-pop singers, following BTS (No.1) and Psy (No.2).
Including “How You Like That” (No.33), “Sour Candy” with Lady Gaga (No.33), “Kill this Love” (No.41), “DDU-DU DDU-DU” (No.55), “Lovesick Girls” (No.59), and “Kiss and Make Up” with Dua Lipa (No.93), a total of 9 songs have been ranked on HOT 100 under the name of BLACKPINK. Adding the members’ solo songs, which are Rosé’s “On The Ground” (No.70) and Lisa’s “LALISA” (No.84), BLACKPINK has entered the HOT 100 for 11 times.
As a result, BLACKPINK has continued to break the record as the K-pop girl group with the highest-ranking song (No.55 with “DDU-DU DDU-DU”) and the most entries on HOT 100.
