The siren now takes the crown for the most Top 5 entries among all K-pop female soloists.
Sunmi's is one step closer to her Billboard chart dreams with a new single securing her as a leader among her fellow K-divas.
Sunmi's latest single "Lalalay" debuts at No. 4 on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart. The blaring and bold anthem sold 1,000 copies in the week ending Aug. 29, according to Nielsen Music. The track is the best-selling K-pop song in America this week and also marks the highest new entry on the chart.
Overall, "Lalalay" bowing at No. 4 marks Sunmi's fifth Top 5 entry on World Digital Songs in less than two year's time. The 27-year-old's first hit the Top 5 with "Gashina" (which hit No. 3 in 2017), and followed up with two more hits the following year ("Heroine" peaked at No. 3 as well in February 2018 with "Siren" hitting No. 5 in September). This year, Sunmi also bowed with "Noir" (which peaked at No. 3 in March) followed by her latest. The only Sunmi song to not go Top 5 was her early 2014 single "Full Moon," released under her former label home of JYP Entertainment, that peaked at No. 13 on the chart.
