Blackpink’s Lisa Scores The Fourth-Longest-Charting Song In U.K. History By A Female K-Pop Act

After several weeks in a row of climbing up the U.K. singles chart, “Money” by Lisa backtracks, perhaps beginning what could be a slow decline down the ranking of the most-consumed songs in the nation. This frame, the cut steps down from No. 46 to No. 54, but by finding space on the tally once again, the cut becomes one of the longest-charting tracks in U.K. history by a woman in the K-pop space.

“Money” has now been present on the U.K. singles chart for five weeks, an impressive run for any tune by a K-pop musician (Lisa was born in Thailand, but the bulk of her musical output could be labeled K-pop). In fact, when looking solely at music created by women in that field, “Money” now stands out as one of the most successful tunes yet.

With a fifth week spent on the U.K. singles chart, “Money” instantly ties with two other tracks as the fourth-longest-charting song by a female K-pop act. Amazingly, all other releases that fit into this bit of history are by the South Korean girl group Blackpink, which counts Lisa as one of the four members. Thus far, the band is the only K-pop musical act featuring women to land long-lasting hits in the nation.

At the moment, “Money” is on the same level as Blackpink’s singles “How You Like That” and “Sour Candy,” a collaboration with Lady Gaga that was featured on her latest album Chromatica. All three songs have thus far earned five stays on the tally, but Lisa’s solo smash could easily up that count in a few days.

The longest-charting song in U.K. history that credits a female K-pop act of any kind is a tune titled “Kiss and Make Up,” which is fronted by Dua Lipa and which features Blackpink. Back in 2018, it first reached the list, and it went on to rack up a dozen frames on the roster. It remains the only cut powered by women in K-pop to live on the ranking for double-digit frames.

Coming in behind that collaborative Blackpink hit is another, as their single “Ice Cream” with Selena Gomez racked up eight weeks on the U.K. singles chart. Just one other cut, Blackpink’s own “Kill This Love,” lived on the list for longer than Lisa’s “Money.” “Kill This Love” currently stands as the third-longest-charting song by a female K-pop musical act, as it managed half a dozen frames on the tally.

“Money” will likely earn at least another week (or perhaps several) on the U.K. singles chart, and in just a few days, it will probably move up on this all-time ranking. With six turns on the roster, Lisa’s solo win will match “Kill This Love,” and it could soon pass that hit as well.
