Among the list who debuted at the chart are all from South Korean artists: “Winter Flower” by singer-songwriter Younha featuring RM ranked first; “Answer” by boy band Ateez at No. 6, “Boy, Girl” by girl group Loona at No. 14, “Horizon” also by Ateez at No. 18, and “My Love” by Baekhyun at No. 20.
Tala,written by Nica del Rosario and Emmanuel Sambayan was originally released in 2016 – and it was already a bop! However, the song, including its choreography became much more popular among Filipino fans with a hashtag #TalaChallenge on social media.
Since the challenge became popular, many fans made its own cover due to its undying popularity and catchy music beat.
