LE SSERAFIM Now Have Two Tracks on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100

The South Korean pop group's "Easy" has dropped off the U.S. chart, but it's spending its second week on the Canadian Hot 100. This week, another song, "Smart," also makes its debut.




South Korean pop group LE SSERAFIM continue to make a chart impact this week, with two songs landing in the Canadian Hot 100.

Their song "Easy" debuted at No. 48 last week — the highest placement so far for the group — and has now charted for a second week, this time at No. 61.

Another single, the Afrobeats-informed "Smart," debuted at No. 91 this week. LE SSERAFIM recently dropped a video for "Smart," and both tracks come from their latest EP, EASY, which is also at No. 93 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart.

Last week, the group also had their first-ever U.S. Hot 100 hit with "Easy." While they've dropped off the American chart, they clearly have strong support in Canada.


Elsewhere on the chart, Benson Boone retakes the No. 1 spot this week with "Beautiful Things," and new OVO-signee 4Batz is climbing back up with his viral single "Act II: Date @ 8" rising from No. 84 to No. 75. With a new remix from Drake, the downtempo jam is likely to climb even higher in weeks to come.

Canadian artists have no new debuts on the chart this week, but they did make some solid gains.

Tate McRae's "greedy" moves up two spots to No. 5 and LU KALA's "Hotter Now" rises one spot to No. 46. Josh Ross' "Ain't Doin Jack" moves up from No. 74 to No. 69, while Preston Pablo's "Dance Alone" goes from No. 81 to No. 76, and Alexander Stewart's "I Wish You Cheated" climbs from No. 86 to No. 82.
