Lady Gaga & BLACKPINK’s “Sour Candy” makes a predictably big splash on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The song, which appears on Gaga’s new “Chromatica” album, debuts at #33 on this week’s edition of the listing. The placement counts for the song’s first full week of sales and streams (as well as radio activity, although that factor was nominal in the case of “Sour Candy”).
“Sour Candy” becomes BLACKPINK’s fourth Hot 100 hit — and its highest-charting entry yet. The group’s previous peak of #41 came courtesy of recent single “Kill This Love.”
With Billboard already confirming the debuts of “Sour Candy” and “Alice” (#84), we know Gaga has at least earned her 33rd and 34th Hot 100 entries.
