KUALA LUMPUR: K-Pop sensation BlackPink's hit single Pink Venom has enjoyed its sixth consecutive week on US Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
According to Soompi, the tune stayed strong at No.87 for the week ending on Oct 8 on the chart that provides the weekly ranking of the most popular songs in the US.
This makes Pink Venom the first K-pop group song released in 2022 to spend six weeks on the chart.
BlackPink's other song, Shut Down, is also holding on the Hot 100 chart for a second consecutive week at the 67th spot after debuting at No.25.
Meanwhile, BlackPink had seven songs on Billboard's Global Excl. US chart this week, namely Shut Down at No.3, Pink Venom (No.6), Typa Girl (No.54), Hard To Love (No.106), The Happiest Girl (No.146), Tally (No.183) and Yeah Yeah Yeah (No.186).
