Monsta X Is Back With Yet Another Pop Radio Hit In America

In addition to being one of the most popular boy groups in the South Korean music industry, Monsta X has consistently proved themselves to be hitmakers on at least one chart in America. Before this week, they already stood out as one of the most successful acts from the Asian nation on an incredibly competitive Billboard ranking in the U.S. Now, they’ve collected one more win, showing once again that they have the fan base and institutional support to continually bring their signature blend of East and West to the largest music market in the world.

Monsta X’s new single “One Day” debuts at No. 38 on the latest edition of the Pop Airplay chart, Billboard’s list of the tracks that reach the largest audience at pop radio stations in the U.S. The South Korean band is no stranger to this ranking, and their latest smash helps them further their lead ahead of almost every other name from that country.

“One Day” is Monsta X’s third song to place on the Pop Airplay chart, and that fact instantly makes it a massive win for the South Korean act. Only one other name from the K-pop capital has appeared on the tally more than once. So far, BTS have collected eight appearances on the roster, upping that sum once again less than a month ago when their latest single, “My Universe” with Coldplay, debuted.

Several other beloved figures hailing from South Korea have also managed to score a pop radio hit in America by appearing on the Pop Airplay chart, but none of them have done so more than once. Acts like Blackpink, Loona, Psy and Tomorrow X Together have all collected just one win, at least so far.

“One Day” is already Monsta X’s second-highest-charting hit on the Pop Airplay chart, which shows the future may be bright for the tune, which is just getting started in terms of promotion in the U.S. The band peaked at No. 26 with “Who Do U Love?,” which rose to that high in 2019. That tune benefited from the inclusion of hip-hop musician French Montana. Last year, the group returned to the list with their own “You Can’t Hold My Heart,” which only managed a single frame at No. 40, in last place.

Five songs debut on this week’s Pop Airplay chart, with “One Day” ranking as the lowest of the bunch. The roundup of new tunes includes the latest from musical acts like Willow (“Meet Me At Our Spot” with Tyler Cole, No. 33), Farruko (“Pepas,” No. 34), Nessa Barrett (“I Hope Ur Miserable Until Ur Dead,” No. 36) and Giveon (“For Tonight,” No. 37), with the last title landing just one space ahead of Monsta X.
