BIGBANG's comeback begins on an explosive note as the K-pop phenoms occupy the top two slots on Billboard's World Digital Songs chart. The feat makes them the fourth K-pop act ever to top the list and gives them a feat that only PSY had previously accomplished.

BIGBANG also becomes the fourth K-pop act to top the ranking. Along with PSY, 2NE1 held the spot with "I Am the Best" (ruling for one week in November 2014 and another week in February 2015) as did BIGBANG's own members G-Dragon and Taeyang for their collaboration "Good Boy" (one week in December 2014) which was officially accredited to GD x TaeYang.

The chart-toppers list is also notable for only including acts from YG Entertainment, is one of South Korea's biggest record labels headed by Yang Hyun-Suk, who was one of Billboard's 2014 International Power Players. YG Entertainment is also home to Epik High, WINNER, Jinusean, Akdong Musician, Lee Hi and more.
