FIFTY FIFTY Breaks Record For Longest-Charting K-Pop Girl Group Song That Isn’t A Collab On UK’s Official Singles Chart
FIFTY FIFTY has set a new record on the United Kingdom’s Official Singles Chart!
After making history as the first K-pop girl group ever to break the top 10 of the Official Singles chart (as well as the fastest to enter the chart), FIFTY FIFTY continues to hold steady with their viral hit “Cupid.”
On May 19 local time, the United Kingdom’s Official Charts (typically regarded as the U.K. equivalent to Billboard’s U.S. charts) revealed that “Cupid” was now spending its eighth consecutive week on the Official Singles Chart at No. 11.
Notably, “Cupid” is the first song sung solely by a K-pop girl group to chart for eight weeks on the Official Singles Chart—meaning that it has broken the record set by BLACKPINK’s “Pink Venom” for the longest-charting non-collab K-pop girl group song. (“Pink Venom” charted for seven weeks after its release last year.)
Including collaborations, Dua Lipa and BLACKPINK’s track “Kiss and Make Up” holds the record for longest-charting K-pop girl group song, having spent 12 weeks on the Official Singles Chart after its release in October 2018.
Congratulations to FIFTY FIFTY on their impressive achievement!
