BTS and Coldplay’s ‘My Universe’ collaboration is one of its kind with standing tall for weeks on the UK’s Official Singles Chart. Meanwhile, BLACKPINK’s Lisa is on an unstoppable quest to become one of the top artists across the globe with her solo debut album ‘LALISA.’ It is no wonder these two K-pop artists are shaking the world on their beat as they deserve every bit of recognition they get.
UK Official Singles Chart works on behalf of the British record industry, as it is tasked with listing the top-selling singles in the United Kingdom. This ranking and listing are done based upon physical sales, paid-for downloads and streaming. It is a version of the Billboard Charts in the United States. Turns out both BTS x Coldplay’s ‘My Universe’ and Lisa’s ‘MONEY’ are tracks that are going strong in the United Kingdom.
Since a month to its release, the joint single ‘My Universe‘ still continues to perform well on the United Kingdom’s Official Charts. After debuting at No. 3 on the Official Singles Chart last month, ‘My Universe’ is now at its sixth consecutive week in the top 20 of the chart. For the week of November 5 to 11, ‘My Universe’ has ranked down to No. 13.
In meantime, Lisa is the historic artist on the chart. The singer continues to make Official Chart history with her B-side track ‘MONEY.’ The song had ranked No. 54 in its fifth consecutive week on the Official Singles Chart. Adding to her own record, Lisa is now the first female K-pop soloist to ever chart a song for five weeks on the Singles Chart. The only other in the K-pop history to do the same (spend 19 weeks on the chart) was PSY with the track ‘Gentleman.’
