SB19, the first Filipino idol group trained under a Korean entertainment company, climbed to no. 5 of Billboard Social 50 chart this week. It’s two notches up from their last peak at 7th place which the group has reached last month. For this ranking, SB19 bested K-pop groups such as EXO (#6), TXT (#7), NCT DREAM (#8) and ATEEZ (#9). Meanwhile, Italian Opera singer Andrea Bocelli debuted in the chart at no. 3 while Indonesian artist Fiersa Besari climbed to no. 10. It’s interesting to note that not a single American artist made it to the Top 10 this week. Does this mean the end of American domination in the global music industry?
Check out this week’s top 10 on Billboard Social 50 chart:
- BTS (175th week at no. 1)
- AndreaBocelli (debut)
- NCT 127
- TOMORROW X TOGETHER
- NCT DREAM
