K-pop rookie girl group "FIFTY FIFTY" has set yet another new record on the U.S. Billboard global chart.
According to the Billboard chart released on the 22nd (local time), "FIFTY FIFTY" claimed the top spot on the "Billboard Global (Excl. U.S.)" chart with their title song "Cupid" from their debut single "The Beginning: Cupid," which was released on February 24.
"FIFTY FIFTY" is now the third K-pop group to reach the pinnacle of this chart, following in the footsteps of 'BTS' and 'Black Pink'. Moreover, "Cupid" marks the fourth K-pop song to achieve this feat, joining the ranks of BTS's "Dynamite" and "Life Goes On," as well as BLACKPINK's "Pink Venom."
Notably, "FIFTY FIFTY" is the first song to enter the chart since its inception in September 2020 and has become the world's first girl group to reach No. 1. Additionally, it secured the second position on the "Billboard Global 200" chart, which includes the U.S., moving up one spot from last week's third place.
"Billboard Global (Excl. U.S.)" and "Billboard Global 200" rankings are determined based on global streaming and music sales, excluding traditional broadcast scores. These charts hold significant influence in the global music industry.
Furthermore, all eyes are now on whether "FIFTY FIFTY's" "Cupid" will continue to make waves on the main Billboard single chart, the "Billboard HOT 100," which includes broadcast scores. "Cupid" reached the 17th position on last week's "Hot 100" chart dated the 20th, maintaining its presence on the chart for eight consecutive weeks.
This marks the longest-running solo song by a K-pop girl group, tying the record set by BLACKPINK with their collaboration "Ice Cream" featuring U.S. pop star Selena Gomez. As "Cupid" is set to enter the "Hot 100" chart on the 27th, it will have spent a remarkable nine consecutive weeks on the charts, surpassing the achievement of "Ice Cream." Fans eagerly await to see if it can surpass the 13th position on the "Hot 100" achieved by "Ice Cream."
