BLACKPINK’s “Kill This Love” Takes No. 1 On Many Major Realtime Charts
The group’s new mini album of the same name was released on April 5 at midnight around the world. Due to the rules of many of Korea’s major realtime charts following reform in 2017, tracks released at midnight only enter most charts after 1 p.m. KST that day.
By April 6 at 1:34 a.m. KST, BLACKPINK’s title track “Kill This Love” had reached No. 1 on the realtime charts of major charts Bugs, Mnet, Naver, and Soribada. It took No. 2 on Korea’s largest music site Melon as well as Genie and No. 3 on Flo.
Meanwhile, BLACKPINK’s “Kill This Love” became the first song by a K-pop girl group to reach No. 1 on the iTunes Top Songs chart in the United States, and it also reigned over charts in many other countries around the world.
Congratulations to BLACKPINK!
