Korean pop group Wonder Girls have set another record in the U.S., as their single "Nobody" reached 31st on Billboard's Year End Hot Single Sales Chart on Sunday.
The single became the first song by an Asian singer to make it into the top 100 in three decades when it peaked at 76 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart in October last year.
The Hot Single Sales chart lists the 100 best-selling singles of the year in the U.S., and it shows that the popularity of "Nobody" is still going strong a year after it was released.
"SiCK" by teen trio New Hollow topped the chart, while pop stars Madonna and Ne-Yo made it on the list with "Revolver" at 34th and "Beautiful Monster" at 36th, respectively.
The Wonder Girls' management agency JYP Entertainment said, "We are very delighted that a song released last year is still consistently loved."
The quintet wrapped up a successful concert in Malaysia on Saturday, and will tour other parts of the world before returning to the U.S. early next year with a new single.
