The'Global Top 50' is a chart that ranks based on daily streaming among the music released in the world.

'How You Like Like That' ranked eighth on the Spotify US top 50 charts. It is the first time that Black Pink is in the top spot on the Spotify US Top 50 chart, not as a collaborative song, but as their single single.

Black Pink ranked 41st on the Billboard main single chart 'Hot 100' with 'Kill this Love' last year, and rose to 33rd earlier this month with 'Sour Candy' sung with Lady Gaga.

'How You Like That' is BLACKPINK's first official comeback in a year and two months, and it seems that the response from fans around the world waited for a long time.

"We wanted to give a positive and hopeful message through this song," BLACKPINK's Jisoo said at an online press conference on June 26th. "We sang with the heart of not giving up on the dark and difficult situation and not losing the strength and confidence to rise again."

'How You Like That' is also popular as a music video, surpassing 100 million views in 32 hours, the shortest time in YouTube history.
