She's done it AGAIN. For the third time in a month, IU has broken her own record on the Gaon Digital Chart. This week, the K-pop princess earns her sixteenth No. 1 single (thirteenth as a lead artist) with her G-Dragon collaboration, “Palette.”
With this latest achievement, IU continues to shatter her own record for the artist with the most No. 1 singles and the most weeks at No. 1 on the Gaon chart, which was launched in early 2010.
The 23-year-old is such a chart force that she dethroned herself this week, with Oh Hyuk duet “Can't Love You Anymore” slipping one spot to No. 2. Overall, she has seven of the top ten songs this week, all from her new album Palette.
Zico’s “She's a Baby” remains at No. 4 for another week, while WINNER’s “Really Really” moves to No. 5.
Further down, Apink’s special fan single “Always” arrives at No. 32, while Minzy’s first solo single “NiNaNo” comes in at No. 44. Minzy joins her former 2NE1 bandmates who have all had Gaon chart hits of their own before. Park Bom has three number one hits, while CL and Dara have both reached the top five before.
The other notable new entry this week belongs to DIA, who come in at No. 78 with their latest single, “Will You Go Out With Me?”.
And while we're on the topic of Produce 101 groups, PRISTIN have something to celebrate this week. Their first single “WeeWoo” has officially surpassed DIA’s “On The Road” to become the highest-selling single from a Produce 101 girl group outside of I.O.I!
Over on the official album chart, girl group LABOUM earn their first No. 1 with their new EP, Miss This Kiss. Meanwhile, Minzy was able to make the top ten with her first EP, Minzy Work Uno 01, at No. 10.
