Has it really only been one year? In the case of Blackpink, it’s almost mind blowing given how much the K-pop girl group has already accomplished on the charts so far. To celebrate the one-year mark from their show-stopping debut on Aug. 7, 2016 with the double singles “Bumbaya” and “Whistle” to today, let’s break down the remarkable first year of achievements from Jennie, Jisoo, Rosé and Lisa.
Blackpink’s Bubbling Moment: Perhaps one of Blackpink’s most impressive accomplishments and a major indicator of their promise stateside is their most recent performance of “As If It’s Your Last.” Not only was it their third single to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart (more on that later), but it became their first song to crack the Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart. For the chart dated July 15, 2017, “As If It’s Your Last” sold more than 5,000 downloads to debut at No. 13 on Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart, which acts as an extension of the 25 songs that have yet to enter on the definitive Hot 100 singles chart and are just below the top 100 slots. Like the main Hot 100 chart, rankings are based on sales, radio airplay and streaming data.

Blackpink is less than a month old, but the new girl group is already making major moves on the Billboard charts with their debut.
The multinational quartet — consisting of South Korea’s Jennie and Jisoo, Australia’s Rosé and Thailand’s Lisa — made their official debut on the K-pop scene with two singles, “Boombayah” and “Whistle.” The tracks both debut atop Billboard’s World Digital Songs at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, with about 6,000 downloads sold each. “Boombayah” sold slightly more than “Whistle.”
Blackpink is only the seventh K-pop act to hit No. 1 on World Digital Songs. The group now joins the company of PSY (who has four No. 1s on the chart), BIGBANG (with three) plus 2NE1, EXO, CL, BTS, plus G-Dragon and Taeyang (all with one). Nevertheless, Blackpink is the fastest act to hit No. 1 on the chart, and only the third to hold the top two positions after PSY and BIGBANG.
The new girl group under YG Entertainment (home to PSY, BIGBANG and 2NE1), Blackpink embrace the hip-hop sensibilities and club-ready sounds with which their seniors gained an international following. “Boombayah” has the ladies rapping and belting over booming, exotic beats while “Whistle” brings together impassioned crooning and their youthful hip-hop delivery with minimal drum ‘n’ bass and an undeniable whistle hook. The tracks were unveiled alongside their accompanying music videos that introduced the group as fashion-forward young women where Jennie and Lisa handle most of the rapping, with Rosé and Jisoo delivering vocals amid physically-demanding choreography.
