These Are The Only 19 K-Pop Songs To Reach The Top Three On Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales Chart In 2022

It’s not all BTS!

Billboard‘s World Digital Song Sales chart is a weekly chart that ranks the 15 most popular international songs at the time of its weekly update. It used to be a 25-song chart and thus easier for K-Pop songs to rank on it, and while many K-Pop artists do still rank on the chart frequently, it’s not quite as common as it used to be. It’s also fairly hard for songs to make it into the top 3 on the chart at any given time, let alone the #1 position! Here are the only 19 K-Pop songs that have reached the top 3 on the World Digital Song Sales chart in 2022.
