Girl group Aespa have joined the list of K-pop musicians who have placed hits on the Billboard charts as their latest single “Savage” debuted at No. 20 on the Billboard 200.

This could be the year of K-pop acts, as more and more South Korean musicians are successfully entering the international scene with certified Billboard hits.

Aespa’s latest single, “Savage,” debuted at No. 20 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, which features the weekly chart of the most popular albums in the United States.

“Debut on this week’s # Billboard200 (1/2): # 2 @DonToliver Life of a DON # 19, @codyjohnson Human: The Double Album # 20 @aespa_official Savage (EP) # 27, @OldDominion Time, Tequila & Therapy # 41, @aaliyah Ultimate Aaliyah # 71, @TriviumOfficial In The Court of the Dragon, “the Billboard tweet read.

Billboard also announced the best-selling albums this week with Don Toliver at No. 1 for “Life Of A Don” followed by Aespa’s “Savage”. Third came “Love For Sale” by Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, followed by “Sour” by Olivia Rodrigo and heavy metal band Trivium for “In The Court Of The Dragon”.

“Savage” is the first physical album released by the female quartet after their debut in November 2020.

The album “Savage” contains six tracks, including the title track “Savage,” a trap genre (a subgenre of hip-hop music) led by aggressive drum beats and notable basslines, according to Soompi. The track is currently # 6 in the Best Music Videos list on YouTube since its premiere on October 5.

The song is composed by Kirsten Collins, Jia Lih, Yoo Young Jin and Hautboi Rich, with Korean lyrics written by Yoo Young Jin.

Aespa is operated by one of the leading K-pop entertainment companies, SM Entertainment. The all-female group is made up of Karina, Giselle, Winter and Ningning, who is the only Chinese member of the group.

Meanwhile, heated discussions between loyal Blackpink supporters and Aespa culminated on Monday as fans continue to compare one girl group against the other.

Users of the online fan community Pann said the rivalry was born because Blackpink fans, known as Blinks, accused Aespa of “copying” Blackpink. Not to be outdone, fans of Aespa, known as My, called out Blinks for his “sensitivity”.

“The point is, Blackpink is already at the top of the most popular girl group. They sweep ads as ambassadors. The atmosphere of Aespa [sic] is really good right now because they are sweeping the music charts and winning # 1s. They are really on the rise as a bunch of rookies. There is absolutely no reason for the two fandoms to be angry or sensitive, ”posted a user on Pann in an attempt to calm the conflict between the two fandoms.
