Many musicians are lucky to chart even a single top 10 hit on any Billboard list, but this week, Mew Suppasit has shown that he isn’t most artists. The multi-hyphenate scores five top 10 smashes at once, which is the kind of showing typically reserved for only the biggest and most popular acts in the world. With his clean sweep, the Thai superstar has proved that he not only had a dedicated fan base ready to support him, but that he may have America in his sights as the next country to conquer with his art.

Here are five tracks whose moves are worth noting on this week’s World Digital Song Sales chart.

№4 — Mew Suppasit — “Drowning”

The biggest winner on this week’s World Digital Song Sales chart is newcomer Mew Suppasit, though he’s only new to this ranking. The Thai actor/singer-songwriter and businessman scores five placements on the tally this time around, with all of them appearing inside the top 10, which means he snags half of all the spots in the competitive region.

Up first among his new charting tracks, all of which are featured on his new album 365, is “Drowning,” which enters the race at №4. Not far behind that win come “Missing You” with Zom Marie (№5), “Let Be Me” with Autta (№6), “More and More” (№7) and finally “Time Machine” (№8).

№11 — Monsta X — “Kiss Or Death”

Every few weeks, Monsta X seems to score another hit on the World Digital Song Sales chart, as their fans never let too much time pass before they rush to buy something else from the band in large enough numbers to send it right to the tally. This time around, the group’s new single “Kiss Or Death” arrives, missing out on becoming their sixteenth top 10 hit by just one space, as it settles at №11.

№12 — Jinyoung — “Dive”

After more than half a decade as one of the biggest names in the South Korean music industry (and beyond), the future isn’t clear for boy group Got7. The band departed their longtime label at the beginning of 2021, and since then, the members have all been focused on their own projects, including Jinyoung. The singer recently dropped his first proper solo single “Dive,” and fans clearly love what he has to say, as they purchased it in large enough quantities to send it right to №12 on the World Digital Song Sales chart.

№16 — D.O. — “Rose”

Another beloved boy group hailing from South Korea, Exo, sees one of its members score a solo smash in the U.S. as well this time around. D.O.’s “Rose” opens at №16, becoming the biggest hit from his first release on his own, Empathy. That EP launches at №14 on the corresponding World Albums chart, bringing him to that tally for the first time without his bandmates.

№21 — DPR Live — “Hula Hoops (ft. Beenzino & Hwa Sa)”

Close to the bottom of this week’s World Digital Song Sales chart comes the catchy “Hula Hoops,” which starts off at №21 on the 25-rung roster. The track is fronted by South Korean musician DPR Live and it features rapper Beenzino and Mamamoo member Hwa Sa. The three artists are all well-known in their part of the world, and Hwa Sa is likely the most popular in America, as she has now reached this ranking several times as a soloist.
