Despite the host of newly-released singles, BLACKPINK has succeeded in maintaining the no.1 spot on the charts for three weeks in a row.
As of 2 PM on August 29, “WHISTLE”, one of the title tracks of BLACKPINK’s debut album “SQUARE ONE”, is on the top of the charts of Monkey3 and Naver Music as well as no.2 on the Melon chart.
Upon debut, BLACKPINK swept all the major realtime, daily, and weekly charts of Korea and ranked high on Gaon charts.
The Gaon charts for the 34th week was announced on August 26, and BLACKPINK was no.1 on its digital chart, streaming chart, and mobile chart, demonstrating its huge popularity.
Although BLACKPINK is a mere rookie, the group is writing new history. BLACKPINK became no.1 on SBS’s Inkigayo in only 14 days after its debut, taking the shortest time for a girl group to become no.1 on a music show.
