Top 30 female idols with the highest number of Unique Listeners on Melon in history: BLACKPINK almost makes it to the Top 10, MAMAMOO leads all girl groups

Meanwhile, no representative of the 4th generation has reached the same level as their seniors to enter this digital ranking. 

K-pop fans must be no longer unfamiliar with the concept of Unique Listeners (ULs for short) on the Melon chart. Unlike the number of streams that can be counted multiple times for the same account, with Unique Listeners, no matter how much an account listens to a certain song over and over, it will still only be counted as one ULs unit. For this reason, while streaming volume reflects fandom power, Unique Listeners are considered the most accurate measure of the public popularity of any artist or song.

Top 30 female idols with the highest number of Unique Listeners on Melon in history

Recently, Korean netizens have compiled and shared a ranking of 30 female idols (both girl groups and female soloists) with the highest number of Unique Listeners on Melon in Kpop history. This ranking also includes some other factors such as cumulative streaming, most streamed songs and songs with the most Unique Listeners by each artist. However, the key factor determining the rankings is the total number of Unique Listeners they have earned in their careers, thereby showing which female artists have the highest public recognition on Melon, Korea’s biggest music streaming platform.
