“Lisa joins BTS as the only acts to claim the top two positions simultaneously on Hot Trending Songs, dating to the chart’s launch last October. BTS monopolized the top two on both the Dec. 4 and June 25 rankings,” Billboard reported.

Lisa set a new record as the first female artist to grab the No. 1 spot on the Hot Trending Songs chart dated Aug. 6.

“Lalisa,” Billboard said, “is also the only title to appear on every Hot Trending Songs chart dating to the survey’s inception (43 weeks and counting).”

Placing third on Hot Trending Songs chart is “With You” by Ha Sung-woon and BTS’ Jimin followed by “Bad Decisions” by Benny Blanco, BTS and Snoop Dogg, and “Forever 1” by Girls’ Generation.

Ranking sixth to 10th are “Guerilla” by ATEEZ, “Forever Love” by New Suppasit and Bumkey, “Paradoxxx Invasion” by ENHYPEN, and BTS’ Jin’s “Yours” and “Super Tuna.”

“Billboard‘s Hot Trending Songs charts, powered by Twitter and sponsored by Capital One, track global music-related trends and conversations in real-time across Twitter, viewable over either the last 24 hours or past seven days. A weekly, 20-position version of the chart, covering activity from Friday through Thursday of each week, posts alongside Billboard‘s other weekly charts on each Tuesday. The charts highlight buzz around new releases, award shows, festival moments, music nostalgia and more. Hot Trending Songs is unique in that it tracks what songs people are talking about, not necessarily what they’re listening to,” according to Billboard.
