Jennie from BLACKPINK made history as the highest-ranking K-pop female solo artist on the prestigious US Billboard Hot 100 chart.
According to the latest Billboard Hot 100 chart released on January 9th, the OST One of the Girls from the HBO series The Idol, featuring Jennie, has secured the 69th spot on the chart.
The song initially entered the chart at 100th place but got pushed out due to the year-end carol. However, it made a comeback and re-entered the chart. Jennie got to collaborate with The Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp on this song.
Jennie’s ranking of 69th on Billboard’s ‘Hot 100’ is a groundbreaking achievement for a K-pop solo female singer. Previously, the highest score was 70th place, which was held by BLACKPINK Rosé’s On the Ground.
Another BLACKPINK member Lisa secured 84th place with LALISA and 90th place with Money at 90th place.
Jennie, who has been making waves as a solo artist on Billboard’s Hot 100 has recently launched her own independent label called ODD ATELIER (OA). This is a big step for her as she prepares for her full-fledged solo career.
