EXO's Baekhyun becomes the highest charting solo K-pop artist on Billboard's 'Artist 100' with 'Young'

EXO's Baekhyun made a new record on Billboard 'Artist 100' chart with "Young" featuring LOCO.

The idol star debuted at No.84 on 'Artist 100' chart, which "measures artist activity across key metrics of music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity," according to Billboard. This makes Baekhyun the highest charting solo K-pop artist on 'Artist 100'. 

Back in 2015, Psy was the first K-pop artist ever to enter the 'Artist 100' chart. His 7th album peaked at No.88. j-hope of BTS is another artist who has entered 'Artist 100'.  In March, the idol rapper with his mixtape album 'Hope World' landed at No.91. 

Baekhyun's collaboration song with LOCO has also peaked at No.4 on Billboard's 'World Digital Song Sales' chart.
