The new K-pop girl group "FIFTY FIFTY" has made an impressive debut on the British-American single chart and set a new record for K-pop girl groups on the US Billboard main single chart "Hot 100."
According to Billboard on the 8th (local time), "Cupid," the title track of "FIFTY FIFTY's" first single "The Beginning: Cupid" released on February 24, ranked 19th on Billboard's "Hot 100" on the 13th. This is a significant improvement from last week's ranking, rising by 22 steps.
After entering the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 100, "FIFTY FIFTY" stayed on the chart for seven consecutive weeks, ranking from 94th to 41st. In particular, "FIFTY FIFTY" set a new record among K-pop girl groups for the longest entry period on the chart, reaching the second spot alone.
Previously, "Cupid" of "FIFTY FIFTY" was tied with "Pink Venom" by "Black Pink" and "OMG" by "Newjeans" for six weeks of staying on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Currently, "Ice Cream" by "BLACKPINK" and American pop star Selena Gomez holds the record for the longest stay on the Billboard Hot 100 for a K-pop girl group, ranking for a total of eight weeks and peaking at 13th place.
Furthermore, "Cupid" of "FIFTY FIFTY" entered the top 20 of "Hot 100," making them the second K-pop girl group to achieve this feat after "BLACKPINK" with their collaboration with Lady Gaga, "Sour Candy," which peaked at 17th place.
It is worth noting that "Cupid" is a solo song by "FIFTY FIFTY" and not a collaboration with a pop star, making their achievement all the more impressive. Additionally, "Cupid" has also set a new record for K-pop girl groups on the UK's official single chart, ranking ninth in the top 100 singles (5-11 days).
