FIFTY FIFTY's "Cupid," has reached the number one spot on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart, making them the first-ever girl group to achieve this feat with their debut song. 
According to the Billboard chart released on May 22nd (as of May 27th), FIFTY FIFTY's first single, "The Beginning: Cupid," released on February 24th, surpassed popular K-pop groups BTS and BLACKPINK to claim the top position on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart. 
"Cupid" marks the group's fourth K-pop song to reach number one on this chart, following BTS's "Dynamite" (5 weeks at number one), "Life Goes On" (1 week at number one), and BLACKPINK's "Pink Venom" (3 weeks at number one).
FIFTY FIFTY's achievement is significant as they are the first girl group to enter this chart since its inception in September 2020 and achieve a number one ranking with their debut entry. Furthermore, they are currently climbing the ranks on the "Global 200" chart, which combines worldwide digital sales and online streaming, including the United States. They have risen from the third position to claim the second spot on this chart.
Billboard attributes the success of "Cupid" to its original version, twin version, and instrumental version, and emphasizes the role of TikTok in contributing to the single's growth. The platform has played a crucial role in the success of the song.
Previously, FIFTY FIFTY's "Cupid" achieved a remarkable feat by reaching number 17 on the Billboard main singles chart, the "Hot 100," for eight consecutive weeks. This is the longest-running record for a standalone song by a K-pop girl group and is comparable to the achievement of BLACKPINK's collaboration with Selena Gomez, "Ice Cream."
As the Billboard "Hot 100" chart for this week is yet to be announced, there is growing anticipation worldwide to see if FIFTY FIFTY's "Cupid" can surpass the eight-week record set by "Ice Cream" and continue its chart presence for the ninth consecutive week.
