“Shut Down” bows with 13 million official U.S. streams in the Sept. 16-22 tracking week, according to Luminate.
It’s the group’s third top 10 on Streaming Songs and second completely solo. After first reaching the top 10 with the No. 8-peaking “Ice Cream,” a co-lead with Selena Gomez, in 2020, BLACKPINK hit No. 9 in September with “Pink Venom” (the latter concurrently ranks at No. 38 with 7.7 million streams, after a first-week count of 14.3 million).
No other K-pop girl group has reached the chart’s top 10, and no other girl group has earned more than one top 10 since the ranking began in 2013.
In terms of Korean acts, BLACKPINK ties PSY for the second-most top 10s in the survey’s history. PSY reigned twice with “Gangnam Style” (six weeks at No. 1, 2013) and “Gentleman” (two weeks, 2013), while the Snoop Dogg-featuring “Hangover” reached No. 4 in 2014.
BTS leads all South Korea-based acts with five top 10s, starting with “Fake Love” (No. 7, 2018) and followed by “Boy With Luv, featuring Halsey (No. 5, 2019), “Dynamite” (No. 3, 2020), “Butter” (No. 4, 2021) and “Permission to Dance” (No. 8, 2021).
“Shut Down” does allow BLACKPINK to achieve a new feat for South Korean acts; new album Born Pink becomes the first non-compilation or anthology release to yield two or more top 10s on the chart.
Concurrently, “Shut Down” debuts at No. 25 on the multi-metric Billboard Hot 100. In addition to its streams, the song earned 4,000 downloads in the latest tracking week.
As previously reported, Born Pink also crowns the Billboard 200 with 102,000 equivalent album units earned, the first ruler by an all-woman group since 2008.
