Rapper BLOO's 'Downtown Baby' hits top of the charts thanks to Lee Hyori
Lee, who has been competing as part of a co-ed band with singer-actor Rain and entertainer Yoo Jae-suk, on MBC variety show “How Do You Play?” since May, sang BLOO’s song on the show’s episode aired Saturday.
As people started looking up the song on local music streaming services, it quickly rose to the top of music charts on Genie Music and Bugs by Tuesday morning.
“Downtown Baby” beat recent releases such as singer IU’s “Eight” featured by Suga of BTS and girl group Twice’s “More & More.”
BLOO uploaded on his Instagram account on Sunday a screen capture of the music chart on Melon, showing his “Downtown Baby” as the No. 1 most searched song, with the caption “What’s going on here?”
