    Twice will never be a threat to BP western reign. Simply because, they do the bare minimun and still there on top.

    Rosé's OTG did not have any remixes and yet it ranked #70.

    Lisa's Lalisa did not have remixes, only instrumentals, and yet it ranked #84.

    Those two songs also did not have radio spins and only pure sales and streams.

    BP also entered BBH100 with Korean songs.

    I'm not invalidating Twice's success in BBH100 but the fact that they entered with a full English song with many remixes and discount prices, its something to think about. Onces have been degrading BP for ranking high in BBH100 with Ice Cream for seeking "Western validation" and yet never thinking that they did it with D4 before. Onces are just eating their words now.

    Anyway, Twice surely have fans in the West just like the rest of the Kpop groups. But BP is and will still be bigger in the West.

    I love how simple and comfy Jisoo looked but the baggy pants doesn't suit her. It made her look shorter. I love the leather jacket though.

    Lisa's outfit was meh. A blazer paired with baggy pants is not my style. Adding to that is her hair which basically ruined her look for me.

    Jennie was too comfy and seems to have lost touch at that time.

    Rosé's definitely the best airport style. Her color combination was perfect. Her hair was styled pretty simple but very fitting for her outfit. The blazer for the classy style. And her white sneakers for the simplicity of the outfit. It was just the perfect combination of simple, comfy and yet classy which is perfect for the event they are going to. It fitted her so well as YSL GA.

    IU was so captured by Rosé during the debut days even calling her as charming. If their collab happens, Kcharts would surely be exploding. Two well-loved vocalists in SK collabing is a dream.

    She was HEAVILY promoted there since the release day. Not only in Korea but in US too. She's new YG favorite.

    Even without the promotions yet, OTG and Gone entered #3 and #5 respectively in Melon in just 8 hours. Plus, she didn't even had heavy promotions in SK except her music show performances. She only had what two variety appearances(Ugly Duckling and Knowing Brothers with Hyeri). She's just well-loved in SK.

    And she only had 1 US show performance and that's in Jimmy Fallon. Those interviews she had happened a week after her solo was released.

    Rosé did extremely well for a solo debut with two English songs. People seem to have forgotten that OTG and Gone both peaked at #3 and #5 respectively in Melon and were at 1 or 2 in other sites. It entered the Kcharts even without the promo yet and OTG stayed in Melon Top 100 for 6 months.

    If not for IU and BG, she would have had gone higher. But despite that, she was on #3. For a solo debut facing those two, she did extremely well. I just hope that she'll release Korean songs next time because Knetz just love her voice so much.

    I don't think mistreatment is the word. Its more of mismanaged. BP is a group with four member with huge individual popularity, relevance and following and yet YG wasn't able to manage each member well.

    The girls could have been promoted to the areas they are popular for.

    Jennie and Jisoo could have had variety shows.

    Rosé could have had music shows.

    Lisa has mentorship show in China.

    Each girl has their areas of strength and YG wasn't able to take advantage of that.

    As of the moment, Jennie has no guestings. Shs only have magazines. Thankfully, she is now having campaigns with Chanel.

    Rosé just had her solo debut so her promotions were expected. But beyond that, she doesn't have anything except Global ambassadorships with YSL and T & Co. If not for these two brands, she won't have anything. There were collab and guesting offers for her and YG declined them.

    Jisoo has Snowdrop coming. She has Dior Beauty.

    Lisa just had her solo debut but she was in two seasons of YWY in China as a mentor. She has magazine covers like almost every month.

    YG is just so stupid.

    What competition? She should have gotten top30 at least if US blinks supported her and she got all those US shows like Rose did. If you are gonna say Kanye or Drake well they don’t have 80 singles on the chart, that excuse by blinks is making me cringe, it like an excuse to not support.

    Technically yes..does it matter tho? They both landed on Billboard 100 with their solo debut and both are successful

    Not really. The release of both songs are on a different time. And Rosé landing on #70 will still be remembered compared to landing on #84. Points do not really matter compared to positions. But yes. Both solos are successful. Rosé just did better internationally.

    Honestly though, Rosé is step by step conquering the fashion world. Her presence at Met Gala is just the start.

    I am always for Rosé as an artist but modelsé is becoming bigger and bigger. One of these days, she'll just become a giant in the world of fashion.

    Rosé just happen to be so blessed to have formed a very close relationship with YSL. She really charmed Anthony and the whole YSL. I bet she even charmed T & Co. and Mr. Arnault. She is just that charming and embodied the two brands perfectly.

    Will the song chart better or do better if Rosé or Jennie released Lalisa? For sure, yes.

    Jennie is SK's IT girl so whatever she releases will for sure be a hit.

    Rosé released two different genre of songs in English which is a foreign language for Koreans and yet both songs charted so high and did well. And I'll give it to her popularity in SK. Her vocals are well-loved by Knetz proven by how her covers in Sea of Hope were always trending. She is known as Korea's Golden Voice so just like Jennie, whatever she puts out will surely be a hit whether in Korean or English.

    Will Rosé or Jennie released a song like Lalisa?

    They might. But among the two, Rosé went her way out to release songs that are far from the songs Blackpink released so I believe, Rosé will not release a song like Lalisa. Its not in her artistry.

    Lalisa as a song is a song BP can release. If BP released the song, it will for sure be a hit. HYLT and D4 are proofs of it. And that's because of BP brand.

    So, I believe that Lalisa is not doing well in SK is not because of the song but because it was Lisa who released it. No offense to Lisa but she is the least popular in SK. I don't want to make it xenophobia but Knetz just maybe weren't as familiar with Lisa as they are with Rosé and Jennie. Maybe if she had promotions in SK then she might have gained relevance to the GP.

    Yeah not charting...

    OTG was #72 with 56 points....

    Really is just bad timing.....

    Was it #72? I think it was predicted to chart at 75 or something then did 70. But yes, OTG charted with 56 points.

    Her streams are stable but did lower compared to Rosé's. The song also haven't cracked #1 in US Itunes. Also, there seems to be a problem with sales. And definitely stronger competitors this time.

    Luck might not be on her side this time. If her fan base is able to do at least 6-7k then she might have the chance to chart.
