Blackpink member Jennie recently made her return to the music scene with her solo track "One of the Girls," which is featured in the TV show The Idol, on which she currently stars. While it is still early to gauge the actual, specific success her latest release will enjoy, there are promising signs that the song could be on its way to earning a notable debut on the Billboard charts in the coming days.

This week, "One of the Girls" enters Billboard's Hot Trending Songs chart, which ranks the songs that generate the most buzz on Twitter. This particular list provides insights into the songs that people are discussing, rather than only purchasing or streaming. "One of the Girls" not only appears on the Hot Trending Songs chart, it debuts at No. 1. This chart is unique because it sometimes features tracks that haven't even been released yet, as fans can occasionally generate such massive anticipation for a song that it garners enough pre-release discussion to earn a spot on this tally.

The fact that "One of the Girls" has generated so much conversation is a testament to the incredible interest surrounding the track. Jennie, who had not released a solo project in five years, helped the tune attract significant attention from the public, as did fellow acts The Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp. This attention will hopefully translate into a substantial number of plays on streaming platforms during the first few days following its release.

Jennie boasts a dedicated following, and many of her fans likely not only listened to "One of the Girls" once it was out, but also purchased it. Those who love South Korea artists often actively support their favorite musicians by purchasing their music. Consequently, numerous Korean artists have achieved remarkable success on the Billboard charts, often surpassing Western counterparts in terms of song and album sales.

The intense and immediate interest in "One of the Girls" suggests that the single has a promising future. It is highly likely that the song will place on the Digital Song Sales chart in the following week, solidifying its position as one of the bestselling tracks in the U.S. Other songs from The Idol have achieved similar success, and Jennie's presence will undoubtedly contribute to its performance.

Depending on Billboard's classification, the song may also find a place on various genre-specific charts. Furthermore, there is a real possibility that "One of the Girls" could make its way to the highly coveted Hot 100 chart. This journey begins with its inclusion on the Hot Trending Songs ranking, which has often proven to be a reliable predictor of future success, especially when a tune that’s not yet out ranks among the most-discussed on the internet.

A recent example of this is BTS's new single "Take Two," which opened at No. 1 on the Hot Trending Songs chart prior to its official release. Similar to "One of the Girls," the track went on to dominate the Digital Song Sales list and secured a position within the Hot 100. Could Jennie experience the same fate with her new release? It certainly seems plausible, but the certainty of her success will only be known once Billboard publishes the updated charts next week.
