BLACKPINK - "How You Like That"

First, Forbes talked about BLACKPINK's recent hit song "How You Like That." This track continues to soar high as it nears a year on the Billboard chart. The magazine stated that the song's ranking this week is "best in some time" for the tune.

BLACKPINK's "How You Like That" has returned to the top 5, climbing from No. 12 to No.3. Forbes took note of this as "an impressive jump" for a song that has already spent months on the rankings since it was released last year.

Weeekly - "After School"

Weeekly is a new K-pop girl group that debuted last year under Play M Entertainment, becoming the second female act of the company in 10 years following Apink.

Forbes noted how Weeekly just debuted less than a year ago, but the rookie group is already creating a significant impression in the United States.

The band has landed their new song "After School" on the World Digital Song Sales chart, claiming the No. 21 spot. The US magazine sees this as a significant debut that shows the potential success of the new girl group in America.

BTS - "Boy With Luv" (featuring Halsey)

As the usual case, the global boy group BTS has occupied more spots on the Billboard chart than any other artist. In particular, one of their all-time hits re-entered the list. "Boy With Luv" managed to appear within the top 25, scoring the No. 23 position. Forbes stated that the BTS song has now spent 76 nonconsecutive weeks on the chart.

The magazine took note of how the boy group's single "God's Menu" returned to the rankings, particularly within the top 25 list. The song came in the last place, marking its 11 weeks on the chart.
