NewJeans Becomes 1st K-Pop Girl Group In Billboard Hot 100 History To Chart 3 Songs For 5 Weeks

NewJeans is enjoying unprecedented success on Billboard’s Hot 100!

On August 15 local time, Billboard revealed that NewJeans’ hit single “Super Shy” had climbed back up to No. 66 on the Hot 100 (its weekly ranking of the most popular songs in the United States), marking its fifth consecutive week on the chart.

NewJeans has now become the first female K-pop artist—and only the second overall, following BTS—to chart three different songs for five weeks each on the Hot 100. Before “Super Shy,” both “Ditto” and “OMG” spent five weeks on the chart earlier this year.

Additionally, NewJeans’ latest mini album “Get Up” stayed strong at No. 12 in its third week on the Billboard 200—making it only the second K-pop girl group album in history to spend three consecutive weeks in the top 15. The only other K-pop girl group album to achieve the feat to date is BLACKPINK’s 2020 album “THE ALBUM.”

“Get Up” also rose to No. 1 on this week’s Tastemaker Albums chart, in addition to spending its third week in a row at No. 1 on the World Albums chart and sweeping the No. 2 spot on both the Top Album Sales chart and the Top Current Album Sales chart.

Meanwhile, numerous songs from “Get Up” held steady on both of Billboard’s global charts. On the Global Excl. U.S. chart, “Super Shy” ranked No. 5, followed by “ETA” at No. 8, “New Jeans” at No. 37, “Cool With You” at No. 54, and “ASAP” at No. 109. On the Global 200, “Super Shy” climbed back up to No. 7, with “ETA” at No. 18, “New Jeans” at No. 56, “Cool With You” at No. 78, and “ASAP” at No. 161. “ETA” also rose to No. 9 on this week’s World Digital Song Sales chart.

Finally, NewJeans maintained their position at No. 6 on Billboard’s Artist 100, marking their seventh non-consecutive week on the chart.

Congratulations to NewJeans on their amazing achievement!
