K-pop is once again demonstrating its dominance on the most recent Billboard weekly music rankings. Girl groups have become quite the trend in 2022 as their impact grows with each new release. Additionally, during the past year or two, the number of new debuts has soared extraordinarily.
The pre-release song “Pink Venom” by BLACKPINK off their upcoming second full-length album “Born Pink” topped the Billboard Global 200 and the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts. The song has maintained its position from last week and will keep doing so from August 26 to September 1 in the tracking period. According to reports, the song has received 108.4 million plays and 7,000 downloads overall for the Global 200 chart, compared to 99.5 million streams and 5,000 downloads outside of the United States, which helped it reach high positions.
TWICE also scored their second Top 10 single with ‘Talk That Talk,’ which debuted at No.10 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart with 38.8 million streams and 5,000 downloads. With their debut English song, “The Feels,” the female group had already made their first Top 10 entry.
IVE, whose song “After LIKE” climbed 20 ranks from No. 29 to No. 9 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. list, saw the most gain. The female group, which made its debut last year and has witnessed a global preference for their work, has now achieved its professional high point. After its release, IVE’s most recent single, “LOVE DIVE,” climbed to No. 10 on the chart.
