Blackpink, The Supremes, Go-Go’s & More All-Female Groups To Top Billboard 200

Black pink enters the Billboard 200 at No. 1 this week with Born Pink. The K-pop sensations are the eighth all-female group to reach the top Billboard‘s flagship album chart (which dates to 1956). They follow four pop/R&B groups, Diana Ross & The Supremes, TLC, Destiny’s Child and Danity Kane; a pop/rock group, Go-Go’s; a pure pop group, The Spice Girls; and a country group, The chickens.

The Supremes and The Chicks are tied as the all-female groups with the most No. 1 albums – three each. Destiny’s Child and Danity Kane are tied for second with two No. 1 albums each.

Go-Go’s Beauty and the rhythm topped the Billboard 200 for six weeks in 1982, longer than any other album by an all-female group. Diana Ross and The Supremes’ greatest hits (1967), The Spice Girls’ Spice (1997) and TLCs Fan mail (1999) are close behind with five weeks each at the top.

Blackpink came close to joining this elite list of all-female groups to top the Billboard 200 in October 2020 when their debut album, The albumdebuted and peaked at No. 2. The first female group to reach No. 1, The Supremes, also just missed the feat with a previous album. Where did our love go? stalled at No. 2 for four consecutive weeks in January and February 1965 (behind The Beatles’ Beatles ’65 – tough competition).

Wilson Phillips came agonizingly close to making this list. Their debut album from 1990 Wilson Phillips logged 10 weeks at No. 2. It stuck behind MC Hammer’s Please hammer, don’t hurt thema 21-week leader.

Here’s a complete list of the all-female groups for country No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200.
