NewJeans is reaching new heights on the Billboard Hot 100! Last week, NewJeans’ latest title track, “OMG,” debuted at No. 91 on the Billboard Hot 100 (Billboard’s weekly ranking of the most popular songs in the United States), making them the fastest K-pop group in history to achieve multiple chart entries.
Billboard stated on January 31 local time that “OMG” ascended to No. 79 in its second week on the Hot 100, marking NewJeans’ highest ranking on the list. Furthermore, NewJeans’ pre-release song “Ditto” successfully remained on the chart for a third week, remaining at No. 89.

NewJeans has become only the third K-pop group in history (after BTS and BLACKPINK) to spend three weeks on the Hot 100, and the fastest to do it at only six months into their career.
“OMG” returned to No. 5 on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart in its fourth week, while “Ditto” remained at No. 7 in its sixth week. Meanwhile, on Billboard’s global rankings, “Ditto” remained at No. 9 on the Global Excl. U.S. chart and No. 11 on the Global 200 this week, while “OMG” swept the No. 12 place on both.
Congratulations to NewJeans!
“Ditto” is a song by NewJeans, a South Korean girl group. On December 19, 2022, it was released as the first single from their first single album OMG. Minji, Ylva Dimberg, the Black Skirts, Oohyo, and producer 250 collaborated on the song’s composition.
In August 2022, the South Korean girl group NewJeans released their first eponymous extended play (EP) to financial and critical acclaim. The EP topped South Korea’s Circle Music Chart in its debut week, selling 311,200 copies. On November 10, 2022, ADOR revealed via NewJeans’ social media that their first single album, OMG, will be released on January 2, 2023.
Min Hee-jin, the CEO and Executive Producer indicated that the release will be preceded by an untitled track “made for the group’s first winter with Bunnies (NewJeans’ official audience)” and would be published on December 19. The song’s title, “Ditto,” was revealed on December 12 via three moving posters: one included words from the music, while the other two depicted two rabbits, one red and the other white, running.
