4Minute’s ‘Hate’ Enjoys Belated Popularity in China
Girl group 4Minute’s song Hate emerged on the chart in QQ Music, the biggest music provider in China.
On February 18, the title song of the group’s seventh mini album ranked second on K-Pop Chart of QQ Music. Millions of users of the site expressed their huge interest in the song three weeks after its release.
According to the chart, the song entered the chart in the second position two weeks after its issue in the local market, implying the high attention it gets from the Chinese music lovers. Previously, 4Minute members confidently said that it is “hideously addictive and it adds on.” Analysts saw the song’s catchiness as the cause of the belated success.
Notably, 4Minute was the only female artist among the top five rankers of the chart.
Hate is expected to continue its reign on the chart as the group’s song Crazy in 2015 has the record of occupying the summit of QQ Music’s chart for ten weeks.
The group is actively performing its new song Hate in Korea. It is making remarkable records such as hitting top ten on iTunes chart in six Asian countries and airing on Beats1, a global online radio station.
Meanwhile, 4Minute member Hyuna will star in China’s holiday special show Happy Celebration of the Lantern Festival on Hunan TV on February 22.
