Wonho, Ateez, Blackpink’s Lisa And LeeHi: Hits Making Moves On The World Songs Chart
The World Digital Song Sales chart only features 25 spots, and this week, it’s flush with both just-released singles that appear for the first time and a handful of popular cuts find their way back to the list thanks to notable sales sums. Eight brand new tunes debut as beloved songs by the likes of Tomorrow X Together, Lebo M and Bang Chan & Hyunjin appear once more.
Here are five tracks whose moves are worth noting on this week’s World Digital Song Sales chart.
No. 1 – Lisa – “Lalisa”
One of the bestselling songs in the U.S. this week, it’s not surprising that Lisa’s nearly-self-titled “Lalisa” opens atop the World Digital Song Sales chart. The tune is one of two released by the Blackpink singer and rapper, and it instantly becomes her first champion on the list that her band knows very well.
“Lalisa” sold well enough to land at No. 6 on the all-language, all-genre Digital Song Sales chart, and the cut even finds its way to the Hot 100, helping the performer make history.
No. 4 – Ateez – “Deja Vu”
The second-highest debut of the frame on the World Digital Song Sales chart comes from South Korean boy group Ateez, whose new tune “Deja Vu” starts off at No. 4. The cut is the seventh top 10 for the band and their seventeenth placement overall on the tally. “Deja Vu” fronts the band’s new EP Zero: Fever Part.3, which arrives at No. 1 on the corresponding World Albums chart this week.

No. 10 – Hyuna & Dawn – “Ping Pong”
Both Hyuna and Dawn got their start in groups, but now they’re succeeding all on their own. The two partnered for an EP titled 1+1=1, with the lead single from the project becoming a real win for the musicians. “Ping Pong” debuts at No. 10, becoming one of three releases to open inside the top 10. Hyuna has now broken into the highest tier on the tally with at least 10 tracks, while this cut appears to be Dawn’s first placement in the region.
No. 14 – Wonho – “Blue”
Following the release of his third solo EP Blue Letter, Wonho returns to the World Digital Song Sales chart with the title’s single “Blue.” The tune starts its time on the list at No. 14, and it looks like the former Monsta X performer has now landed on the sales-only tally with seven cuts of his own making. Five of those hits came from his other recent EP Love Synonym Pt.2: Right for Us, which was released earlier in 2021.
No. 22 – LeeHi – “Red Lipstick (ft. Yoonmirae)”
Vocal superstar LeeHi is back on the World Digital Song Sales chart once again, this time with a collaborative tune featuring fellow South Korean artist Yoonmirae. LeeHi could now count as many as 10 placements on the ranking, while it appears that Yoonmirae may be new to the roster. “Red Lipstick” is featured on LeeHi’s 4 Only EP, which was released earlier this month.
