BLACKPINK Achieves This First-Time Feat on Streaming Songs Chart With ‘Pink Venom’

The song hits the top 10, after the group first reached the region with "Ice Cream" alongside Selena Gomez.

For the first time, BLACKPINK boasts a top 10 on its own on Billboard‘s Streaming Songs chart.

The group’s new single, “Pink Venom,” launches at No. 9 on the list dated Sept. 3. In the Aug. 19-25 tracking week, the song, released Aug. 19, earned 14.3 million official U.S. streams, according to Luminate.

BLACKPINK now sports a pair of Streaming Songs top 10s. “Ice Cream,” with co-lead Selena Gomez, debuted and peaked at No. 8 in September 2020.

The South Korean quartet – Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa and Rosé – has now logged seven Streaming Songs appearances, starting with “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” in June 2018.

“Pink Venom” also begins at No. 3 on the Digital Song Sales chart with 11,000 downloads sold. It drew 359,000 in radio airplay audience in its first week.


Concurrently, “Pink Venom” starts at No. 22 on the multi-metric Billboard Hot 100, marking BLACKPINK’s second-highest charting hit, after “Ice Cream” (No. 13 debut and peak). The act banks its fourth top 40 Hot 100 entry, a total rounded out by two No. 33-reaching songs in 2020: “How You Like That” and its Lady Gaga team-up “Sour Candy.”

As previously reported, “Venom” soars in atop both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts with the biggest worldwide streaming week in over a year. It drew 212.1 million streams (and sold 36,000 downloads) worldwide in the Aug. 19-25 tracking week, marking the second-biggest weekly global streaming sum since the charts began in September 2020, trailing only the 289.5 million that BTS‘ “Butter” drew in its first week, as reflected on the June 5, 2021, Global 200.
