The nickname “monster rookie” isn’t enough to describe them.
BLACKPINK swept the no.1 spot of eight music streaming websites, signaling the start of a mega-rookie.
In the afternoon of August 21, BLACKPINK’s “WHISTLE” took the no.1 spot on the charts of Korea’s eight music streaming websites—Melon, Monkey3, Olleh, Naver Music, Bugs, Mnet, Soribada, and Genie. By doing so, it has become the biggest hit song of this summer.
After its debut, BLACKPINK has dominated all the realtime, daily, and weekly online charts and took the no.1 spot on the iTunes charts of 14 countries. The group has also ranked first and second on Billboard’s World Digital Songs chart and QQ Music’s weekly chart. It is an unprecedented record for a rookie.
Meanwhile, BLACKPINK became a candidate for the no.1 spot of a national TV music show in the shortest amount of time for a girl group. Check out whether the group will be able to take the no.1 spot in only a week after its first debut stage.
