Following the Oct. 2 release of BLACKPINK's The Album, all songs from the South Korean girl group's debut LP rank on Billboard's two new worldwide-based charts, the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S.
Thanks to to the already-charting “Ice Cream,” with Selena Gomez and “How You Like That,” and debuts from the rest of the eight-song set, The Album achieves full saturation in the top 100 of both tallies (dated Oct. 17). The set performs better on the Global Excl. U.S. chart, with all eight tracks in the top 50, five of which crack the top 20.
“Lovesick Girls,” the group’s strongest debut, launches atop Global Excl. U.S., and at No. 2 on the Global 200.
