In its second week, "Gotta Go" leaps to a new chart high for the solo star.

Chung Ha is starting her 2019 off on the right note with a new chart accomplishment.

The solo singer's latest single "Gotta Go" jumps to No. 6 this week on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart, up from its debut position of No. 11 last week, to give the singer her first solo top 10 on the tally. "Gotta Go" sold about 1,000 copies in the week ending Jan. 11, adding to the 1,000 copies sold in its debut week, according to Nielsen Music.

"Gotta Go" now marks Chung Ha's first time sending a track to the top 10 on her own. Previously, the 22-year-old hit No. 3 with her collaboration "Wow Thing," on which she was credited as lead artist alongside Red Velvet's Seulgi, GFriend's SinB and (G)I-DLE's Soyeon. Completely on her own, though, Chung Ha had peaked at No. 19 with 2018 single "Roller Coaster."

Previous to her debut as a solo artist, Chung Ha was a member of temporary girl group I.O.I, which scored two entries on World Digital Song Sales with 2016 singles "Whatta Man" (which peaked at No. 12) and "Very Very Very" (No. 4).

Among the groups and soloists who have released post-I.O.I, the only acts to land entries on World Digital Song Sales have been Pristin (which included Chung Ha's I.O.I bandmates Nayoung and Kyulkyung) with debut single "Wee Woo" (which peaked at No. 11), Pristin V (a five-member unit of Pristin also with Nayoung and Kyulkyung) with two songs "Get It" (No. 6) and "Spotlight" (No. 19), and Weki Meki (feat. I.O.I's Yoojung and Doyeon) with 2018 single "Crush" (No. 14).
