SB19’s Bazinga returns to the top spot on Billboard’s weekly Hot Trending Songs chart on the survey dated December 25.
About nine weeks ago, Billboard launched its latest ranking chart, Hot Trending Songs charts, powered by Twitter and sponsored by Capital One. It tracks global music-related trends and conversations in real-time across Twitter, viewable over either the last 24 hours or the past seven days. The chart mainly highlights what songs people are talking about, not necessarily what they’re listening to.
With BTS leading in many respects, K-pop acts have predominantly ruled the Hot Trending Songs chart since its launch, except for one Filipino group—SB19.
The P-pop sensation has so far proved its immense social popularity over and over, with three of their songs ranked No. 1, with one of them returning to the top spot, which is a rare sight on the tally.
With Bazinga claiming the top spot again, it now stands alone as the second-longest-running No. 1 hit in the very-short history of the Hot Trending Songs chart.
This week’s top debut in the Hot Trending Songs Chart is ATEEZ’s The Real at No. 6, while two MONSTA X songs bow on the chart following the December 10 release of their latest album, The Dreaming: the title track at No. 12 and You Problem at No. 19.
On the other hand, Girl of My Dreams, a collaboration between the late Juice WRLD and BTS member SUGA, from the former’s December 10 release Fighting Demons debuted on the charts at No. 18. It also ranked No. 1 on Digital Song Sales and No. 29 on the streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Billboard Hot 100. Fighting Demons launches at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
