IU Scores Her 2nd Certified All-Kill Of The Year With “Blueming”
“Blueming” achieved a certified all-kill at 2:30 p.m. on November 19. “Blueming” is the title track of her new album “Love Poem,” which was released on November 18 at 6 p.m. KST. The song topped all major realtime music charts just three hours after its release.
A certified all-kill is given to songs that score No. 1 on the daily and realtime charts of Melon, Genie, Bugs, and Soribada; and the realtime charts of FLO and iChart. If IU’s “Blueming” also tops the iChart weekly chart, the song will also score a perfect all-kill. In 2019, five songs have achieved a perfect all-kill so far, and they are BTS’s “Boy with Luv,” BOL4’s “Workaholic,” AKMU’s “How Can I Love the Heartbreak, You’re The One I Love,” MC Mong’s “Fame,” and her own pre-release track “Love Poem.”
All-kills in general have become harder to attain this year, which is largely attributed to how some charts calculate their rankings, along with the addition of the FLO chart in March. In October, Naver Music and Mnet were taken off of iChart as their services came to an end, with Mnet combining with Genie Music.
Congratulations to IU on another success!
