Stray Kids are off to a strong start internationally!
JYP Entertainment’s newest boy group Stray Kids is receiving lots of love overseas with their debut. Stray Kids made their official debut on March 26, and released their album “I am NOT” at 6 p.m. KST featuring title track “District 9.” As of 8 a.m. KST on March 27, Stray Kids has claimed the top spot on the iTunes Album Chart for 10 countries: Argentina, Canada, Chile, Finland, Indonesia, Malaysia, Peru, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand.
This is a remarkable accomplishment for rookies who have just made their debut. Stray Kids first became known to the public through their survival show aired on Mnet last year. Like their labelmates GOT7 and TWICE, Stray Kids seem to be well-received by international fans early on. Stray Kids previously topped the iTunes chart in four different countries with their pre-debut mixtape released this past January. Stray Kids also took first place in Billboard’s list of Top 5 New K-Pop Artists to Watch in 2018. Following the hot response overseas, many are looking even more forward to see what’s in store for Stray Kids.
Highly anticipated as JYP Entertainment’s new boy group, Stray Kids will be active with promotions for their debut album. From self-compositions to live performances, Stray Kids plans to show various charms and skills through their debut promotions.
