JISOO Claims First-Ever Solo BLACKPINK U.K. Top 40 Single With “FLOWER”
She’s the first member of the K-pop juggernaut to achieve the feat.
Jisoo makes Official Charts history today as she becomes the first member of BLACKPINK to score a Top 40 single with debut release FLOWER.
The South Korean singer, born Kim Ji-Soo, sees her first solo record land at Number 38 on this week’s Official Singles Chart; a feat yet to be achieved by bandmates Rosé, Lisa and Jennie.
Previously, Rosé narrowly missed out on a Top 40 track with 2021 debut single On the Ground (42).
Last year, BLACKPINK made history as they became the first female K-pop group to claim an Official Number 1 album with their second LP BORN PINK. Prior to that, the band had reached Number 2 with their debut The Album.
To date, BLACKPINK have scored eight UK Top 40 singles: 2018 Dua Lipa team-up Kiss and Make Up (36), 2019 release Kill This Love, 2020’s How You Like That, Selena Gomez collab Ice Cream (39), Lovesick Girls (40) and Lady Gaga collaboration Sour Candy (17), plus 2022 singles Pink Venom (22) and Shut Down (24).
