Jungkook reigns again, Seventeen arrive in Top 10 [Global K-pop chart]
Jungkook yet again reigned strong on Circle Chart’s Global K-pop Chart, as two of his solo tracks remained No. 1 and No. 2 for four weeks in a row.
Circle Chart’s Global K-pop weekly rankings for the fourth week of October (Oct. 22 — 28), featured “3D (feat. Jack Harlow)” from Jungkook’s second official digital single “3D” in the top slot, followed by “Seven (feat. Latto) — Explicit Ver.” in second place. The clean version of the song also came close at No. 6, one step down from last week’s result. “3D” also appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the same week, at No. 93.
The Global K-pop Chart combines K-pop streaming data from platforms around the world, including local steaming services Melon, Genie, Flo, Bugs and Vibe, and international streaming services Apple Music, Spotify and YouTube.
Seventeen’s “God of Music,” the lead track from the boy band’s latest EP, “Seventeenth Heaven,” landed at No. 8 on the Global K-pop Chart, becoming only new song on the Top 10 list.
All six B-side tracks, excluding the instrumental track, “God of Music,” also entered the weekly global chart, signifying Seventeen’s strong digital presence worldwide. “SOS (Prod. Marshmello)” entered the chart at No. 32, “Monster” at No. 39, “Diamond Days” at No. 45, “Yawn” at No. 49, “Back 2 Back” at No. 57 and “Headliner” at No. 61. “God of Music (Inst.),” too, joined the chart at No. 160.
“Seventeenth Heaven” is doing even better on the physical albums market. The album sold more than 5.09 million copies in the first week of its release, making it the album that has sold the most copies in Korea ever in its first week of release.
Also joining the Global K-pop Chart was Le Sserafim’s latest digital single, “Perfect Night,” which was released Oct. 27 in collaboration with Blizzard Entertainment’s online multiplayer shooter game Overwatch 2. The song landed at No. 43 on the Global Chart, with just two days of streaming taken into account.
“Baddie,” one of the three lead tracks from IVE's latest album, “I’ve Mine,” climbed the charts to No. 3 — three positions up from last week — showcasing the track’s global popularity. NewJeans' “Super Shy” stayed at No. 4, while “You & Me” by Jennie of Blackpink landed two steps down at No. 5.
