BLACKPINK, which is coming out with their first full album in South Korea on Oct. 2, also made history together with BTS on the two new global charts that Billboard has introduced. They are the only K-pop groups to debut in the Top 10 of the Billboard Global 200 chart and the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart.
“Both charts are based on sales and streaming data from more than 200 territories, and the rankings are determined by a weighted formula that combines official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of leading digital platforms with downloads from major online music retailers around the world.”
BTS’s “Dynamite” placed second on both charts, while BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez’s collaboration “Ice Cream” is No. 8 on the Global 200 and No. 6 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart.
