Sistar ranks at the top of chart on Monkey 3

Sistar’s new track “Alone” ranked at the top of a weekly chart.

According to the music site Monkey 3 on April 23, the title track “Alone” of Sistar’s first mini-album is placed no.1 for the third week of April (from the 16th to the 23rd).

As a result, 4Minute’s “Volume Up” which was placed at the top last week ranked down to second. Third ranking went to “As Time Goes By” by Lee Hai from SBS’s K-pop Star.

Busker Busker still shows strong potential. Its songs “Cherry Blossom Ending” and “Yeosu Night Sea” are ranked fourth and ninth, showing off constant popularity and support from its fans.

A new song appeared on the fifth, “Leaving” by Noel.

“Love Is All The Same” by Yangpa, Davichi, and Hannah ranked sixth while Huh Gak’s “The Person Who Once Loved Me” and the soundtrack “Missing You Like Crazy” for MBC’s TV series The King 2 Hearts by SNSD’s Taeyeon are ranked consecutively.

A staff member of Monkey 3 says, “As girl groups and Busker Busker are competing with each other for a better ranking, it entertains fans in guessing the winner of next weekly chart.”
