"The fact that we reached No. 7 on the World Digital Song Sales chart really proves that music transcends language," the singer tells Billboard.
After a long and winding road to finally make her debut on the K-pop scene, AleXa can boast a successful start on the Billboard charts.
The 22-year-old singer sees debut single "Bomb" land at No. 7 on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart this week. Even in a competitive week that boasted new releases from Korean-pop powerhouses like BTS, Super Junior and Tomorrow X Together, AleXa was still able to hold her own as only one of two new K-pop songs to break into the Top 10.
With her solid start, AleXa now claims a place among a small group of female K-pop stars able to land their debut solo single on the Billboard charts. The last K-diva to chart higher with her first single was Somi when her first single "Birthday" bowed at No. 5 on World Digital Song Sales in June.
