    BLACKPINK’s ‘Pink Venom’ Blasts in at No. 1 on Billboard Global Charts

    Blackpinks “Pink Venom,” just became the first title to debut at No. 1 on the weekly Hot Trending Songs chart (dated Aug. 27), ushers in BLACKPINK’s second LP, Born Pink, due Sept. 16.

    Bizarrap and Quevedo’s “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 52” drops to No. 2 following four weeks atop the Global 200; Harry Styles’ “As It Was” descends 2-3 after a record 13 weeks at No. 1; Bad Bunny and Chencho Corleone’s “Me Porto Bonito” falls 3-4 after reaching No. 2; and Bad Bunny’s own “Tití Me Preguntó” slips to No. 5 from its No. 4 high.

    According to Billboards, the song is the South Korean pop superstars’ first No.

    1 on the Global 200, besting the No. 2-peaking “Lovesick Girls,” and their second leader on Global Excl. U.S., after “Lovesick Girls” launched atop the list in October 2020.

    Meanwhile, with the coronation of “Pink Venom,” BLACKPINK becomes the first act to top the Global 200 and include a member that has led the list solo; the quartet’s Rosé reigned in March 2021 with the No. 1 debut of her single “On the Ground.” (That track also opened atop Global Excl. U.S., where BLACKPINK remains the only act to hit No. 1 and have a member do the same solo, thanks to “Lovesick Girls,” “On the Ground” and “Pink Venom.”)

    According to Luminate (formerly MRC Data), “Pink Venom” recorded 212.2 million streams and 36,000 download sales between August 19 and 25. During the same tracking week, the song racked up 198.1 million streams and 27,000 download sales in territories outside of the U.S.

    “Pink Venom” has also debuted at No. 22 on this week’s Hot 100, marking BLACKPINK’s eighth career entry and their fourth top 40 hit, after “Ice Cream” with Selena Gomez, “How You Like That,” and “Sour Candy” with Lady Gaga.
