Billboard Hot 100 First-Timers
Fifty Fifty, a rookie K-pop group, entered the Billboard Hot 100 only four months after their debut in November 2022, making them the fastest K-pop group to achieve this milestone. Although their song Cupid initially entered at No.100, it had moved up to No.17 as of May 18.
Cupid is a lead single from their album The Beginning: Cupid. The song was produced in both Korean and English versions to appeal to a global audience. It captivates listeners with retro and upbeat vibes. TikTok has played a significant role in the success of Cupid since the song has been shared and used often on the platform.

The event is a part of Seung-gi's Asia concert tour and Thailand is his final destination.
