2NE1 track is No. 1 on Billboard World
Girl group 2NE1’s upbeat track “I Am the Best” topped the Billboard’s World Digital Songs after selling 6,000 copies last week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
It is the second time K-pop artists have earned the No.1 title on the chart after Psy’s “Gangnam Style” in 2012.
Although “I Am the Best” was originally released in June 2011, the track has been used in a Microsoft tablet commercial in the United States since August, which is what made it climb up the chart, according to music industry insiders.
The song’s music video also recently achieved 100 million views on YouTube.
