Black Pink's agency, YG Entertainment, confirmed "Solo" topped Korea's major charts, including Melon, Bigs, Mnet and Genie. The song also reached No. 1 on iTunes charts in 49 countries, including Brazil, Hong Kong and Spain.

Jennie released "Solo" and a sultry music video for the single Monday. She told reporters at a press conference the song shows two different sides of her personality.

"Since I have given lots of strong and charismatic performances on the stage, many people think that I probably would be just like that in real life. But many of those who have met me say that I have an aura of genuinely girlish charm," the star said.

YG Entertainment gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Jennie's "Solo" video in a tweet Monday.

News broke this month that Jennie, Rosé, Jisoo and Lisa are working on solo projects in addition to new music with Black Pink. The group last released the EP Square Up in June.
