South Korean girl group NewJeans, known for their recent surge in popularity, continues to make waves on the US Billboard 200 chart with their second mini-album, ‘Get Up.’ Despite a slight drop in rankings this week, ‘Get Up’ maintained its position in the top 50 for the 9th consecutive week. The album’s remarkable debut on the chart solidified NewJeans as the second K-pop girl group ever to achieve this feat.
‘Get Up’ has been rewriting K-pop girl group records on the Billboard 200. Just two weeks ago, it became the first K-pop girl group album to secure a top 30 spot for seven continuous weeks. Now, with its ninth week on the chart, it has set a new record for the longest-running 4th-generation K-pop girl group album in Billboard history.
BLACKPINK’s 1st full-length album ‘THE ALBUM’ holds the title for the K-pop girl group album with the most weeks on the Billboard 200, having stayed on the chart for a total of 26 weeks. NewJeans’ ‘Get Up’ proudly claims the fourth spot on this list, cementing its place as a noteworthy contender in the world of K-pop girl groups. The album’s success isn’t limited to the Billboard 200; it has also made impressive strides on several other Billboard album charts, including the World Albums chart and various sales charts. With the ongoing popularity of ‘Get Up,’ NewJeans is undoubtedly proving their status as a rising star in the K-pop industry.
