11 tracks that didn’t appear on last week’s edition of the World Digital Song Sales chart find their way to the ranking this frame, with seven new releases debuting somewhere on the tally while a handful of beloved tunes sell well enough to return to the roster. Not included below are compositions by artists such as Takanashi Kiara, BM, Rammstein, BTS, Halsey, Yoasobi and even Tom Hiddleston.
Here are five tracks whose moves are worth noting on this week’s World Digital Song Sales chart.
No. 1 – BTS – “Euphoria”
Almost a year and a half into its time on the World Digital Song Sales chart, BTS’s “Euphoria” has finally made its way to the summit. By doing so, the track has become the septet’s thirtieth No. 1 on the ranking, and they extend their lead over all acts when it comes to the most leaders. This frame, the tune vaults from No. 7 to the peak position, bringing the act back to the throne for the sixth time this year.
No. 7 – Taeyeon – “Weekend”
In the years since Girls’ Generation broke up, the members have all remained busy, and Taeyeon stands out as one of the most popular of the bunch to this day…a fact which is clearly evidenced by the immediate adoption of the singer’s latest release “Weekend.” The tune opens at No. 7 on the World Digital Song Sales chart, and it earns the loftiest debut of the week. Taeyeon has now broken into the top 10 on the tally with at least 11 tracks as a solo star.
No. 8 – Kingdom – “Karma”
Seven-member boy group Kingdom is just getting started, and now they’ve shown just how popular they already are in the U.S. by collecting what appears to be their first top 10 hit on the World Digital Song Sales chart. The band, which launched earlier this year, starts their new single “Karma” at No. 8 on the list, earning the second-loftiest debut of the frame.
No. 9 – Drippin – “Free Pass”
A third brand new tune debuts inside the top 10, with a streak of just-released cuts landing coveted placements on the World Digital Song Sales chart continuing unbroken. South Korean boy group Drippin see their single “Free Pass” enter the race at No. 9. That’s an impressive placement for the act, as they aren’t already tried-and-true hitmakers on the tally.
No. 11 – Blackpink – “Lovesick Girls”
Two spots below Drippin’s new top 10, Blackpink don’t just see one of their biggest hits return, they occupy a pair of rungs, one right after the other. First up from one of the world’s biggest girl groups is “Lovesick Girls,” the third and final single from their 2020 debut full-length The Album. The former World Digital Song Sales chart leader reappears at No. 11, coming in just ahead of their own “How You Like That.” The latter title keeps at No. 12 after celebrating a full year on the roster last frame.
