Has it really only been one year? In the case of Blackpink, it's almost mind blowing given how much the K-pop girl group has already accomplished on the charts so far. To celebrate the one-year mark from their show-stopping debut on Aug. 7, 2016 with the double singles "Bumbaya" and "Whistle" to today, let's break down the remarkable first year of achievements from Jennie, Jisoo, Rosé and Lisa.
Blackpink's Bubbling Moment: Perhaps one of Blackpink's most impressive accomplishments and a major indicator of their promise stateside is their most recent performance of "As If It's Your Last." Not only was it their third single to debut at No. 1 on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart (more on that later), but it became their first song to crack the Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart. For the chart dated July 15, 2017, "As If It's Your Last" sold more than 5,000 downloads to debut at No. 13 on Billboard's Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart, which acts as an extension of the 25 songs that have yet to enter on the definitive Hot 100 singles chart and are just below the top 100 slots. Like the main Hot 100 chart, rankings are based on sales, radio airplay and streaming data.
