Fifty Fifty's English version of 'Cupid' hits 300 million streams on Spotify
Fifty Fifty's hit track "Cupid (Twin Ver.)" became the second fastest K-pop girl group song to have surpassed 300 million streams on Spotify, its agency Attrakt said Tuesday.
"Cupid (Twin Ver.)," the English version of the girl group's latest lead track "Cupid" featuring two of the four members of the group, Sio and Aran, has been garnering international popularity upon its release after the track was featured in TikToks and YouTube shorts.
The track surpassed 300 million streams on Spotify as of Sunday, taking only 94 days since the song dropped on Feb. 24 — one day more than what it took Blackpink's "Pink Venom" (2022) to have reached such numbers.
The original track, "Cupid," featuring all four members of the girl group, has also set records, with it landing on Billboard's Hot 100 chart for nine consecutive weeks, making it the longest K-pop girl group song to stay on the chart and the first and only K-pop girl group to top Billboard's Global Excl. U.S. chart on the week of May 27.
Fifty Fifty — with members Keena, Saena, Sio and Aran — debuted on Nov. 23 last year with its first EP, "The Fifty." The group's latest release, "Cupid," which dropped on Feb. 24, was received positively overseas while remaining relatively less known in Korea. The girl group will release "Barbie Dreams" on July 21 as a part of the soundtrack for the upcoming film "Barbie."
