Blackpink Singer Jennie Matches Jung Kook On The Hot 100

News Room

Blackpink singer Jennie was able to hold on and find space on the Hot 100 this week, which was no easy feat. The ranking of the most-consumed songs in the U.S. is flush with new tunes from Beyoncé’s latest album Cowboy Carter, and her invasion pushes many hits off the list. As Jennie’s smash continues to chart, she makes history and ties other beloved figures from her home country.

Jennie is credited as a featured artist on the single “One of the Girls,” which is fronted by The Weeknd and which also names Lily Rose Depp. The tune has now lived on the Hot 100 for 15 weeks, which is an incredibly long time for any release from a South Korean solo artist.

With a fifteenth turn on the Hot 100 to its credit, “One of the Girls” is now tied as the fourth-longest-charting hit in the ranking’s history among tracks by South Korean solo musicians. It matches two other cuts for this position, one which it might not hold for very long.

“One of the Girls” is now on the same level as Psy’s “Gentleman” and Jung Kook and Latto’s “Seven,” which both also managed 15 weeks on the Hot 100. Those two tunes were both top 10 smashes on the list, though so far, Jennie’s single has only risen as high as No. 51.

The record for the longest-charting title on the Hot 100 among tracks by South Korean solo artists is still owned by Psy. His breakout smash “Gangnam Style” racked up 31 stays on the tally before falling off for good more than a decade ago.

Jung Kook fills spots two and three on the list of the longest-running wins on the Hot 100 among South Korean solo artists. His single “Standing Next to You” earned 19 stays on the chart before vanishing from the roster very recently. His collaboration with Charlie Puth, “Left and Right,” managed 17 frames on the tally throughout its lifetime.

“One of the Girls” is declining on the Hot 100, and it doesn’t have very far to fall before it’s removed from the chart entirely. In the coming weeks, it could disappear instantly, or it might actually reverse course. The past two frames have seen the ranking inundated with tracks from two blockbuster albums from Metro Boomin and Future and now Beyoncé. Once those tunes come and go, there may be more room for older favorites to improve, including Jennie’s historic smash.
