BLACKPINK Rosé's "On The Ground" Debuts on Top of Two Billboard Charts

On Tuesday, March 23, Billboard has revealed the rankings of all of its charts for the week ending on March 27, including the Global 200 and Global Excl. US.

These two Billboard charts are similar in a way that they rank the top songs based on digital sales and streaming activity from more than 200 countries. The only difference is that Global 200 includes the songs' performances in the United States, while the other one does not, as seen from its title.

Billboard took to Twitter to unveil the Top 10 rankings for the Global 200 and Global Excl. US, and there, it can be seen that BLACKPINK Rosé has taken the No. 1 spot of the two charts at the same time with her debut song "On the Ground."

This is one of the biggest and rarest debuts on Billboard a female Korean solo artist can make.

Rosé has just become the very first female K-pop soloist to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 chart. Her debut song "On the Ground" has also become the first-ever song by a Korean solo act to simultaneously rank first on both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. US charts.

In addition, Rosé is now the third Korean act after BTS and BLACKPINK to enter the Top 10 of the said two Billboard charts. She has even become the first artist to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Global Excl. US chart as both a soloist and with a group - "On The Ground" and "Lovesick Girls."
