9 years after the Wonder Girls ranked on Billboard Hot 100 at no. 76, another K-pop girl group was able to penetrate the prestigious chart–BLACKPINK!
With BTS making waves in the US music scene, BLACKPINK seems to be the K-pop act to benefit the most with the rising popularity of the Bangtan Boys. On the charts ending June 30, the female quartet makes history as their latest single “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” hit No. 55 on Billboard Hot 100.
