YG-LIFE: 2NE1 TOPS MELON’S TOP 20 ALBUM-ARTIST CHART FOR 5 CONSECUTIVE WEEKS
[OSEN=권지영 기자] Girl group 2NE1 is exerting their potential by topping music-streaming website MelOn’s “ALBUM TOP20” chart for five consecutive weeks. 2NE1 has also been topping “ARTIST TOP20” chart for five weeks in a row, proving their high popularity.
2NE1’s second full-length album “CRUSH”, which was released at 0am on February 26 this year, first topped weekly “ALBUM TOP20” for the week from February 24 to March 2, and then has been in the No.1 place of the chart for five consecutive weeks until the week from March 24 to 30.
Plus, 2NE1 has been in the top place of “ARTIST TOP20” chart for five weeks in a row during the same period, too, which shows that 2NE1 was the most loved Korean singer during that time.
2NE1’s second full-length album swept the No.1 on music charts upon its release. “COME BACK HOME”, one of the double title tracks of the album, took the top place, while most of the other tracks enjoyed a big popularity, being placed in top 10 ranks on the chart of ten major music-streaming websites in Korea.
Furthermore, 2NE1 has made a success overseas, too, as they have achieved the record-high ranking on Billboard’s album chart for the first time for a Korean pop singer, with “CRUSH” entering “Billboard 200” chart at 61st place.
Meanwhile, 2NE1 has been actively performing their new songs since the release of the new album. They are to meet Chinese fans on the 11 this month, at Shanghai concert of their world tour.

Hitting the roof on one of Korea’s most popular music sites, MelOn, is no easy task, unless you’re 2NE1 and Sagging Snail!
2NE1 has hit the roof on MelOn’s real time charts multiple times since the release of their latest single, “I Love You“, displaying the immense popularity of the song as well as the group’s wide appeal.
What’s special about the latest real time chart is that not just one, but two groups have hit the roof simultaneously! This is something that hardly ever happens, especially at the same time. To determine real time chart positions, MelOn takes into account streaming (40%) and downloads (60%) every hour. Thus, not only does it depend on mass streaming, it also depends on how many are willing to purchase the song.
For MelOn’s real time chart at 8AM and 9AM KST, Yoo Jae Suk and Lee Juk (Sagging Snail) have claimed first place by hitting the roof alongside 2NE1 with their newest track, “Punk in the Corner“. Although Sagging Snail was currently in the lead at 8AM, 2NE1 has taken back the #1 spot at 9AM, leaving the competition neck and neck between one of the nation’s top girl groups and the nation’s favorite MC.
Congratulations to both!
As of 11:00AM KST, 2NE1 is holding on to their #1 spot because its their home sweet home.
To those who are curious, here is Sagging Snail by Yoo Jae Suk and Lee Juk:
THE DIGITAL QUEENS ARE BACK!!!
