    Given Gaga’s recent track record with singles, “Sour Candy” seems poised to give Blackpink their best Hot 100 placement yet. Joanne’s lead single “Perfect Illusion” debuted and peaked at No. 15, while follow-up single “Million Reasons” eventually ascended to No. 4 following Gaga’s 2017 Super Bowl halftime show performance. “Shallow,” her Bradley Cooper duet from A Star Is Born, debuted at No. 28 and later topped the Hot 100. And, again, “Stupid Love” peaked at No. 5 just three months ago.

    Even if “Sour Candy” underperforms by Gaga’s standards, it has a shot at cracking the Top 40. (Her 2017 one-off single “The Cure” debuted at No. 39 without any promotion.) In the streaming age, it’s common for multiple songs off the same album to debut high on the Hot 100 simultaneously. And with Blackpink fans throwing their weight behind the track, “Sour Candy” will likely have a disproportionately high number of downloads among Chromatica songs.

    How high “Sour Candy” can climb on the Hot 100 is anyone’s guess, but a Top 20 debut doesn’t seem out of the question. There is precedent for collaborations between K-pop artists and Western pop stars charting extraordinarily well: BTS reached No. 8 on the Hot 100 with the Halsey-assisted “Boy with Luv,” while their Map of the Soul: 7 lead single peaked at No. 4, benefiting from a remix with Sia. It’s not a perfect analog for “Sour Candy,” since Gaga is the lead artist here, but it speaks to the commercial potential of similar collaborations. Between Gaga and Blackpink’s massive fan bases and the sky-high anticipation for new Blackpink material, you’ve got the ingredients for a big Hot 100 debut, and “Sour Candy” could set the stage for a massive comeback when Blackpink releases its full-length album in September.

    I’m looking forward to it. I’m not so bothered about where it charts but if it does well then that’s great.

    I'm not sure ON is a great example to use for comparison because the Sia version didn't actually do all that well because nobody liked it. It charted mostly on the back of the original. That said, I think a top 15 is possible for Sour Candy. Top 10 if it's catchy.

    Yup even on the BB Hot 100... Sia is NOT credited for the #4 because her version wasn't the most streamed/downloaded version. BTS with or without collabs would have placed where they did most likely.

    Also for Sour Candy... it honestly depends on its level of promotion. If Gaga doesn't promote it at all I could see a Top 40/30... if its promoted than maybe top 20/15

    Her next single is a collab with Ariana Grande. Nobody knows if Sour Candy will even be an official single.

    At this point ion even care. After billboard getting exposed charts arent rlly something I'm fully trusting. But it will be successful no doubt
