Girl group NewJeans debuted at No. 96 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart with "Ditto," a track from their album "OMG," on Tuesday.
The Hot 100 ranks the top 100 songs of the week based on sales, digital downloads, streaming data and radio airplay in the U.S.
The five-member group, who debuted just six months ago, made their first appearance on the chart faster than any other Korean artist.
Korean musicians who have ranked on the chart include Wonder Girls, Psy, CL of now disbanded 2NE1, Bangtan Boys -- also known as BTS -- and Blackpink.
BTS first became a global sensation on Billboard in 2017, four years after their 2013 debut, when "DNA" entered the chart at No. 85, while Blackpink, who debuted in 2016, achieved the feat with "Ddu-Du Ddu-Du" (No. 55) in 2018.
