BLACKPINK’s ‘Pink Venom’ Blasts in at No. 1

BLACKPINK‘s “Pink Venom” bounds onto both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts at No. 1, boasting the second-biggest worldwide weekly streaming

The song is the South Korean pop superstars’ first No. 1 on the Global 200, besting the No. 2-peaking “Lovesick Girls,” and their second leader on Global Excl. U.S., after “Lovesick Girls”.

Meanwhile, with the coronation of “Pink Venom,” BLACKPINK becomes the first act to top the Global 200 and include a member that has led the list solo

the quartet’s Rosé reigned in March 2021 with the No. 1 debut of her single “On the Ground.”

The two charts rank songs based on streaming and sales activity culled from more than 200 territories around the world, as compiled by Luminate.

The Billboard Global 200 is inclusive of worldwide data and the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart comprises data from territories excluding the U.S.

Chart ranks are based on a weighted formula incorporating official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of audio and video music services

as well as download sales, the latter of which reflect purchases from full-service digital music retailers from around the world

with sales from direct-to-consumer (D2C) sites excluded from the charts’ calculations.
