The song also debuted at the 55th spot on Billboard’s Hot 100. Moreover, it made a striking feat as it placed first on Gaon’s digital, download, streaming, and mobile chart.

Meanwhile, the femme fatale artists’ latest title track “Kill This Love” continues to soar high in the worldwide music scene. Recently, their newest song has made another history as it became the fastest K-Pop music video to smash 300 million views.
