Blackpink is the first all-female group to debut at No. 1 in over a decade

Blackpink made history on the charts this week with their second set Born Pink, the first album by an all-female group to hit No. 1 since Danity Kane’s Welcome to the Dollhouse in 2008.

According to Luminate via Billboard, “Born Pink” moved the equivalent of 102,000 album units in its first week of release in the US in the week ended September 22. The feat also marks the quartet’s first No. 1 on the Billboard 200, though the full-length 2020 debut “The Album” came close with a narrow No. 2 high.

The eight-track set also debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart, selling 75,500 copies. Most of these sales come from collectible CD packs and digital album sales.

There’s no denying that K-pop artists dominated the charts this week. Joining “Born Pink” at the top is NCT 127’s “2 Baddies”, which debuted at #3 with 58,500 album units earned. The group’s fourth studio album is the third top 10 on the albums chart.

And on the Hot 100: Harry Styles takes gold for England with “As It Was”, which logs 15 weeks at No. 1 – the longest streak for a song by a British artist or act with no other featured artists. Styles also leads the box office with Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling, which grossed a whopping $19 million in its opening week.

At #2 on the Hot 100 is Steve Lacy’s “Bad Habit,” which spends a fourth week at #2 with a 10% increase in airplay. Post Malone’s “I Like You (A Happier Song)” Featuring Doja Cat Jumps From No. 5 To No. 2; Nicky Youre and Dazy’s “Sunroof” remains at No. 4; and Nicki Minaj’s “Super Freaky Girl” slips 3-5. OneRepublic’s “I Ain’t Worried” climbs a spot to #7.

Meanwhile, two country music heavyweights fill the Hot 100: Morgan Wallen’s “You Proof” at No. 6 and Luke Combs’ second Top 10 hit “The Kind of Love We Make” climbs to No. 8. Combs’ “Forvever After All” peaked at #2, the all-time highest ranking for a male solo country singer.)

Bottoming the charts is Lizzo’s “About Damn Time” at No. 9 and Future’s “Wait for U” featuring Drake and Tems, which stays at No. 10 for another week.

The remainder of the Billboard 200 Top 10 features usual players, with the exception of newcomer EST Gee, who enters at No. 8 with his second Top 10 effort “I Never Felt Nun” with 30,000 album units earned.

Bad Bunny’s “Un Verano Sin Ti” slips from #1 to #2 (93,000 album units), after 11 non-consecutive weeks at the top of the chart; Wallen’s “Dangerous: The Double Album” remains at No. 4 (48,000 units) and records an 88th non-consecutive week in the top 10; and the Weeknd compilation album The Highlights” returns to the top 10, up 32-5 (39,000 units). Also, Beyoncé’s “Renaissance” is up 8-6 (36,000 units) and Style’s “Harry’s House” is still at #7 (35,000 units).

Rounding out the top 10 are Rod Wave’s “Beautiful Mind” at #9 (29,000 units) and YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s “Realer 2” down 6-10 (27,000 units). Blackpink is the first all-female group to debut at No. 1 in over a decade
