Global top girl group BLACKPINK has recaptured the No. 1 spot on the weekly fandom chart of ‘K-POP RADAR,’ a chart show dedicated to K-pop broadcast across the United States.

On this chart, Blackpink’s ‘Shut Down’ retook the top spot. However, it is even more meaningful in that it has maintained the top spot for three consecutive weeks until last month and has recaptured the throne by beating several idols’ new songs.
Blackpink’s “Shut Down” music video recorded 12.14 million views during the 3rd week of November (November 11, 2022 – November 17, 2022) of K-Pop Radar.
Blackpink’s Spotify followers also increased by 207,000 during the week. Considering that the number of Spotify followers of K-pop artists increased by an average of 2,100 during the same period, it is a surprising number.

Regarding this, K-Pop Radar said, “Even after two months have passed since its release, they still showed popularity and regained the No. 1 spot.”
In the TOP 10 of the Weekly Fandom Chart announced by ‘K-Pop Radar’ this week, group VERIVERY’s ‘Tap Tap’ entered the 6th place at the same time as the comeback, and group VICTON’s new song ‘Virus” climbed to number 7.
