K-pop Chart Roundup: Success For SISTAR19, BoA, Ailee, and Nine Muses
Posted by Newson 02/07/2013 at 3:33 AM
SISTAR19 blast onto the official GAON singles chart this week with their latest hit, “Gone Not Around Any Longer.” The song debuts at No. 3, and is a surefire lock for the top spot next week after bagging an “all-kill” with some seriously explosive digital sales.
As expected, LeeSsang’s “Tears” bags the No. 1 position this week, knocking Bae Chi Gi’s “Shower of Tears” featuring Ailee down a spot to No. 2. Speaking of Ailee, the pop diva also debuts at No. 8 with her power ballad, “Ice Flower,” from the Queen of Ambition soundtrack, giving her two songs in this week’s top ten.
BoA’s new single, “Disturbance,” which we reported was selling strongly on the digital charts shortly after its release, debuts at a solid No. 5. Considering that she hasn’t promoted the tune outside of dropping a music video for it, it’s a great result.
And last but not least is the Nine Muses. Their jazzy new single, “Dolls,” rises 18 places to No. 17, giving the group their biggest single to date. We predicted this would happen in last week’s chart roundup, but definitely weren’t expecting their chart jump to be this high. “Dolls” is the Muses fifth single overall and first top twenty entry, so they’ll certainly be happy this week to officially ditch their former flop status once and for all.
Check out the key hits on this week’s GAON chart, below.
No. 1 – LeeSsang feat. The SeeYa’s Yoojin – Tears
No. 3 – SISTAR19 – Gone Not Around Any Longer
