This is proof of their global dominance.

BTS and BLACKPINK have been making waves all around the world, but they now have a unique and impressive record to their name.

These two groups are the only two K-Pop acts on Billboard‘s World Digital Song Sales Chart! According to Billboard, BTS and BLACKPINK control more than two-thirds of the chart dated April 27.

While other K-Pop acts have been on the charts in the past–these include groups like MAMAMOOKARD, and (G)-IDLE, this is the first time where the charts have been dominated by only two K-Pop acts.
