FIFTY FIFTY has accomplished a major milestone by securing the top spot on Billboard’s Global Excl. U.S. chart for the first time ever. On May 22, Billboard revealed the top 10 entries on the latest Global Excl. U.S. and Global 200 charts, dated May 27.
FIFTY FIFTY’s viral hit “Cupid” has risen steadily on both charts and has now reached No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart and No.2 on Billboard Global 200 Chart. This achievement marks a significant milestone for the group, as they become the first K-pop group and the first all-female group from any genre to debut at No. 1 on Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart.
The Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. charts, launched in September 2020, rank songs based on streaming and sales data from over 200 territories worldwide. While the Global 200 includes global data, the Global Excl. U.S. chart focuses on data from territories excluding the United States.
Despite a slight decrease in streams and sales, with 65.1 million streams (down 2 percent) and 2,000 sales (down 9 percent) outside the United States during the week of May 12 to 18, FIFTY FIFTY managed to climb from No. 2 to No. 1. This remarkable accomplishment places them in the company of only two other K-pop groups, BTS and BLACKPINK, who have also reached No. 1 on this chart.
“Cupid” has reached a new peak on Billboard’s Global 200 chart, climbing from No. 3 to No. 2 with 81.7 million streams and 4,000 sales worldwide, reaching No.1 on the Global 200 Chart will be surely be the next goal for the girls and their fans!
