"Lalisa" leads with a 45% vault to 1.5 million Twitter mentions in the July 22-28 tracking week.
BLACKPINK’s Thai rapper-singer Lisa soars 6-1 on the ranking for the week ending August 6 to become the first female artist to dominate Billboard’s Hot Trending Songs chart, fueled by Twitter.
According to Twitter, the song, which was released in September 2021, topped the charts with a 45 percent jump to 1.5 million Twitter mentions during the tracking week of July 22–28. The song’s success can be partly credited to its 2022 MTV Video Music Awards nomination for Best K-Pop, which was made public on July 26. In the same category as “Lalisa” are the songs “Yet to Come” by BTS, “Loco” by iTZY, “Hot” by SEVENTEEN, “Maniac” by Stray Kids, and “The Feels” by TWICE.
On the Hot Trending Songs chart, “Maniac” comes in at No. 20, while “Yet to Come” is ranked No. 8.
Since the ranking’s inception in October, “Lalisa” has topped the Hot Trending Songs chart eight times, following BTS’ “Permission to Dance,” “Butter,” and “Yet to Come,” SB19’s “Bazinga,” Ha Sung-Woon and Jimin’s “With You,” and J-“More” Hope’s and “Arson.”
Notably, “Lalisa” is the only song to have been on each Hot Trending Songs chart since the list’s inception, for a total of 41 weeks and counting. It rose to No. 2 four weeks ago from its initial position of No. 3 in the first ranking.
The only debut on the most recent Hot Trending Songs chart, at No. 19, belongs to TWICE with “Celebrate.” After “The Feels” (No. 4 peak) and “Scientist” (No. 3 peak), it is the group’s third entry (No. 11). The fourth Japanese-language studio album by the group, “Celebrate,” was released on July 27.
