South Korean pop band BLACKPINK has added another feather to their cap with its latest pre-release song “Pink Venom.” The girl group is now the first to top both the Global 200 and the Global Excl. U.S. charts. The “BOOMBAYAH” singers also recorded the second-highest streaming numbers in a week globally since the debut of the two charts in 2020.

In October 2020, the quartet garnered massive success with “Lovesick Girls,” which gained the number 2 position on Global 200.

The Global 200 is calculated with the help of sales and streaming data acquired from more than 200 regions. Meanwhile, Global Excl. U.S. is based on the results of all countries, excluding the United States.
