Chart Check [Hot 100]: BLACKPINK Scores First Top 40 Hit Ever Thanks to Lady Gaga’s ‘Sour Candy’

Published: Tuesday 9th Jun 2020 by Rashad

Ahead of the sweet reception of ‘Sour Candy’ – BLACKPINK‘s duet with Lady Gaga – the South Korean quartet were already penciled in Billboard history books for being the highest charting female K-Pop group ever thanks to the #41 peak of their tune, ‘Kill This Love.’

Now, as revealed by the refreshed Hot 100, they’ve upped the ante thanks to the ‘Chromatica’ tune’s official debut.

Details inside:

Premiering at #33 on this week’s tally, the arrival of the BloodPop-produced tune comes as a personal best for BLACKPINK (to date).  And, although its their first time occupying a slot in the top 40, ‘Sour’ shines as Gaga’s 25th career entry in that region of the Hot 100.

As congratulations is due to both parties, look below to see who joined them on this week’s TGJ Chart Check: Hot 100 edition.

    PERIODT! legend TINGZ some people reach number 33 with so much promotion and celebrities giving free promo and this is an ALBUM track. a top 40 hit ! would love if they pushed this as a single with a video after Rain On Me runs its course

    Sour candy is the worst song off the album. Fans demanded for solo version. We don’t need no stupid k pop stuff on this track.

    That’s awesome! Still want the girls to be more active and release their own material. Don’t want to see them locked in their dungeons all the time..

    Rain on Me already dropped off #1 all these number one debuts and no one can retain the top spot for more then 1 week ! Smh

    This song is the next hit from album. I feel like it will be huge and possibly even another number 1!

    This is what a good collab does. BLACKPINK helps Gaga to attract kpop audience and Gaga helps BLACKPINK to reach more mainstream audience. Chromatica is really serving ancient-city style!!!
