BLACKPINK’s LISA Scores Another Global Hit, Joining Her Own Band in an Incredible Feat
Just one single that wasn’t present inside the top 10 last week enters the competitive tier, and by doing so, the musician behind the global smash makes history and matches a feat managed by very few acts from one part of the world.
Lisa’s “Money” vaults from No. 19 to No. 10 on this week’s Billboard Global 200, breaking into the top 10 on the chart for the first time. The track marks the Blackpink member’s second tune to find its way into the space, and that’s historically significant.
With her second top 10 hit on the Billboard Global 200, Lisa has become just the third K-pop musical act of any kind to enter the area more than once. She first placed between Nos. 1 and 10 just a few weeks ago with her debut solo single “Lalisa.” That cut opened in the runner-up space, missing out on becoming a worldwide leader by one rung. Now, she has doubled her total appearances inside the area in an instant.
Blackpink is one of the only other names in the K-pop space to see more than one of their singles lift into the top 10 on the Billboard Global 200. The South Korean girl group has thus far managed to accrue a pair of top 10 smashes.
In the year-plus since the Billboard Global 200 launched, the only other K-pop artist that’s managed to land a tune somewhere inside the top 10 is fellow Blackpink member Rosé, whose debut solo song “On the Ground” remains the only No. 1 by a solo star known for making K-pop music.
