NewJeans Becomes 2nd Highest-Ranking K-Pop Girl Group In Billboard Hot 100 History As “OMG” Hits New Peak
NewJeans is now the second highest-ranking K-pop girl group in Billboard Hot 100 history!
Earlier this year, NewJeans became the fastest K-pop group in history to land multiple entries on Billboard’s Hot 100 (its weekly ranking of the most popular songs in the United States) when their latest title track “OMG” joined “Ditto” on the chart. In the weeks since, “OMG” has been rising consistently on the chart, reaching a new peak every single week since its debut at No. 91 last month.
On February 14 local time, Billboard revealed that “OMG” had climbed to No. 74 in its fourth consecutive week on the Hot 100, marking NewJeans’ highest ranking yet on the chart.
With this new achievement, NewJeans has overtaken Wonder Girls to become the second highest-ranking K-pop girl group in Hot 100 history, bested only by BLACKPINK.
Meanwhile, “Ditto” also rose to its own peak on the Hot 100 this week: in its fifth consecutive week on the chart, the hit pre-release single jumped to No. 82.
Outside of the Hot 100, “OMG” climbed back up to No. 4 on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart and No. 9 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart this week, in addition to ranking No. 12 on the Global 200.
“Ditto” also stayed strong in its eighth week on all three charts, coming in at No. 9 on the World Digital Song Sales chart, No. 11 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart, and No. 14 on the Global 200.
Finally, NewJeans spent their second week on Billboard’s Artist 100 at No. 99.
Congratulations to NewJeans!
