BLACKPINK, (G)I-DLE, and More Included in Genius Korea's Top Girl Groups of 2020

Now that 2020 is over and 2021 is here, it is time to look back at all the amazing artists who shined last year. With that, Genius Korea has unveiled the results of their Year-End Korea Chart. Let's take a look at who made it to their top girl groups of 2020 list.

The list is compiled by Genius Korea community moderators. All the girl groups mentioned in their top girl groups chart were active in 2020. Another factor they look into to determine the top girl groups of the year are the total page views of an artist and their concurrent page views via lyric searches on the platform, Genius.

BLACKPINK, who is currently known as the biggest girl group in the world, sits at number one on Genius Korea's year-end chart. This year has been the busiest in BLACKPINK's career. On April 22, 2020, BLACKPINK collaborated with Lady Gaga for the song "Sour Candy", which was released on the former's studio album "Chromatica". In June, BLACKPINK made their first debut in a year and two months with "How You Like That", a pre-release single to their first full-length album.

The same month of the album's release, Netflix released their BLACKPINK documentary, "BLACKPINK: Light Up The Sky", which covers the four years since their group's debut in 2016.

The group that sits at number two is the CUBE Entertainment girl group, (G)I-DLE. In April, the group released their third extended play, "I Trust", with the lead single "Oh my god". In conjunction with their release, the girl group signed with Republic Records to promote in the Western market.
