The new year seems to have started off quite successfully for YG Entertainment artists, who have taken over the new year’s top 10 chart.
As of January 3, 2017, 6 out of the top 10 songs Melon’s live chart are by YG Entertainment artists.
Ranking 1st is Hwang Kwanghee and Gaeko’s “Your Night” featuring Oh Hyuk, who is signed under YG’s sub-label, HIGHGRND.
In the 2nd spot is Akdong Musician’s newest title “Last Goodbye,” from the group’s last album before member Chanhyuk‘s military service.
BIGBANG’s “FXXK IT,” which was released more than two weeks ago, is still in the 3rd spot.
In the 6th spot ranks the collaboration between Haha and Winner’s Mino, “Shoot!” while BIGBANG’s “Last Dance” took up the 9th spot. The final spot in the top 10 was taken by Yoo Jae Suk and Dok2’s “Like” featuring solo singer Lee Hi.
The prospects for YG in the new year are bright, according to one industry affiliate, in which “YG has many big projects they have been working on since the end of last year,” such as collaborations with the members of Infinite Challenge.
YG’s idol groups, iKON and WINNER, are also on the line up for a comeback this year.
