According to Billboard on Tuesday, Super Junior became the first K-pop act to enter the chart with the trilingual single, which incorporates Spanish, Korean and English and features Latin pop star Leslie Grace and DJ duo Play N Skillz. The song has also hit No. 2 on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart.
Billboard stated that the move could indicate a rising possibility of more Korean and Latin acts collaborating if it performs well on charts that reflect the tastes of both Latin and K-pop fans.
“Lo Siento” -- Spanish for “I’m Sorry” -- is the lead track off “Replay,” Super Junior’s repackaged album of last year’s “Play” album that was released in November last year in celebration of Super Junior’s 12th anniversary.
The band will kick off a four-nation tour in Latin America on Friday, starting in Buenos Aires. It will later head to Lima, Peru, and Santiago, Chile for shows on Sunday and Monday, respectively, and wrap up the tour in Mexico City in Mexico on May 4.
