It surpassed the entry record of BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez's "Ice Cream" for eight consecutive weeks. 

K-pop rookie girl group "Fifty Fifty" has made a breakthrough on the English-speaking singles chart by achieving the longest-running entry for a K-pop girl group on the prestigious Billboard Hot 100.

According to Billboard on the 23rd, Fifty Fifty's title track "Cupid" from their debut single "The Beginning: Cupid," released on February 24th, reached number 18 on the Hot 100 chart for the week of the 27th.

Although they dropped one spot from the previous week's 17th position, they still remain in the top tier. Notably, they have now spent nine consecutive weeks on the chart, surpassing the previous record set by K-pop powerhouse girl group Blackpink with their collaboration with American pop star Selena Gomez, "Ice Cream," which spent eight weeks on the Hot 100.

The attention now turns to how long Fifty Fifty can extend their record for the longest-running entry by a K-pop girl group on the Hot 100.

However, "Cupid" has yet to surpass Blackpink's highest ranking on the Hot 100, which was 13th place. This stands as the highest ranking achieved by a K-pop girl group. Nevertheless, for a K-pop girl group's standalone song, "Cupid" has achieved their highest position at number 17.

"Cupid" ranked 18th on "Hot 100" on the 27th...fall by one notch but remain at the top.

Separately, Fifty Fifty's "Cupid" has also achieved another milestone by topping the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart on the 27th, marking a new record for a K-pop girl group. Following global supergroups BTS and Blackpink, Fifty Fifty becomes the third K-pop group to reach the summit of the chart. Additionally, "Cupid" becomes the fourth K-pop song to reach number one on this chart, following BTS's "Dynamite" (5 weeks at number one), "Life Goes On" (1 week at number one), and Blackpink's "How You Like That" (3 weeks at number one).

In particular, Fifty Fifty becomes the first-ever girl group to enter the chart since its inception in September 2020 and achieve a number one position. Additionally, they have climbed one spot to number two on the Global 200 chart, which includes the United States, from their previous week's third position.

Billboard Global Excl. U.S. and Global 200 charts determine rankings based on global streaming and sales data, excluding traditional broadcast scores. They are regarded as a global measure of actual music chart rankings worldwide.
