Already ahead of Little Mix, with their 17 million equivalent album sales Blackpink are comfortably the biggest female group on the planet right now.

With one fourth of the quartet, Lisa, releasing her first single album next week, expect to keep hearing about the group. In spite of their healthy sales, it feels like they are just getting started.

huuuu

can you do one with TWICE?

A.B.

I just have noticed in the table “blackpink song sales” – it shows that Ice Cream had 0 physical sales, but Ice Cram was released as a single and they were selling cd’s so why physical sales of it are not shown ?

It never came out on CD from what I’ve seen. Do you have any source for this claim?

matt

It was only released for downloading and streaming (?)

noct1

Ice cream never had a cd release, only how you like that did

Find me

How can you count twice for colaboration song it will double count …like ice cream BP colab selena gomez and many other colab song …you must count with devide with ratio part of each singer

alex!

Is this worldwide or just in korea?

Al

Hi alex!
All numbers here are global

ludaluda

Also may I ask why Whistle – DDU-DU DDU-DU download figures are so low? They have five songs that surpassed more than 2,500,000 digital downloads in Korea (Whistle, Playing With Fire, AIIYL, D4, Forever Young).. Are they not included? or maybe discounted?

ludaluda

Oh… Thanks for the clarification! Keep up the good work <3

amare135

What does real downloads mean?
Also I think you should include MelOn since groups like Blackpink don’t have many bots in South Korea, they’re more relevant to boygroups. Is there not a way to remove bot streams with unique listeners somehow?

What they mean with “real downloads” is paid downloads. The post-end of 2017 dls are not fully paid, but gotten unlimitedly for free with a subscription.

Nevertheless, MelOn still includes millions of bot streams. You guys just want inflated CSPC results

amare135

theres bot streams on every streaming service, you sound mad.

Drewwwwww

Thank you MJD! I was trying to say why it’s better to use Genie because it filters bot streams much better. I don’t trust MelOn anymore, only sometimes.

ludaluda

Hi! You can use both MelOn and Genie streaming figures, MelOn (South Korea’s biggest online music provider) started disclosing song streaming figures starting from December last year.

MelOn and Genie streams vary so much, and I think it may be a nice addition to the criteria 🙂 This is BLACKPINK’s overall and individual stream figures on MelOn: https://xn--o39an51b2re.com/melon/artiststream/995169

If you want to see other artists as well, try this website: guyso.me (its in Korean so you may need to turn on google translate)

matt

MelOn doesn’t filter streams at all, a lot of old songs have bot generated plays which leads into extremely high numbers (700M+ streams for a song), that’s why they don’t use it.

Tony

Thank you ❤️
will you do the Pussycat Dolls analysis?

zinedine

are these figures reliable?

Drewwwwww

They are reliable.

Daniel Castro

You’re so smart

matt

How You Like That has over 50 million views on QQMusic, while As If It’s Your Last has 23 million for example.

Why did you multiply one for 5 and the other for 50? How are you able to tell if it’s available for audio stream or not? all of the songs simply say available for vip users in my app.

matt

Thank you so much!!!
