FIFTY FIFTY Ties Record For Longest-Charting K-Pop Girl Group Song On Billboard’s Hot 100 As “Cupid” Rises To New Peak
FIFTY FIFTY is breaking records left and right on Billboard’s Hot 100!
Back in March, FIFTY FIFTY made history by becoming the fastest K-pop group ever to enter Billboard’s Hot 100 (its weekly ranking of the most popular songs in the United States), with their viral hit “Cupid” charting at No. 100 just over four months after their debut.
In the two months since, “Cupid” has maintained a perfect streak of rising to a new peak with each passing week—and this week was no exception. In its eighth consecutive week on the Hot 100, “Cupid” climbed to No. 17, marking its highest ranking yet on the chart.
“Cupid” has now broken its own record (it ranked No. 19 last week) for the highest-ranking K-pop girl group song that isn’t a collaboration. Only one other K-pop girl group song has ever broken the top 20 of the Hot 100: BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez’s collab single “Ice Cream,” which peaked at No. 13 in 2020.
“Cupid” is also now tied with “Ice Cream” for the longest-charting K-pop girl group song in Hot 100 history, with both songs having spent eight consecutive weeks on the chart.
Outside of the Hot 100, FIFTY FIFTY rose to No. 58 in their second week on Billboard’s Artist 100, making them only the sixth K-pop girl group ever to break the top 60 (after BLACKPINK, TWICE, ITZY, aespa, and LE SSERAFIM).
Additionally, “Cupid” held steady at No. 2 on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart and climbed to No. 10 in its second week on the main Digital Song Sales chart, while rising to new peaks of No. 2 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart and No. 3 on the Global 200.
Congratulations to FIFTY FIFTY on their amazing achievements!
