HYBE’s newest girl group NewJeans is off to a promising start on both domestic and international music charts!
On August 1, NewJeans—a new five-member girl group launched by Min Hee Jin’s HYBE sub-label ADOR—made their digital debut with their self-titled EP and the music video for their third title track “Cookie.”
Within hours of the online release of their new EP, all three of NewJeans’ title tracks—”Attention,” “Hype Boy,” and “Cookie”—successfully entered Melon’s realtime chart. Notably, “Attention” debuted on the chart at No. 20, marking the highest chart entry of any girl group debut song released in the past three years. NewJeans also swept the top four spots on Bugs’ realtime chart with the tracks from their EP.
Outside of Korea, NewJeans’ debut EP soared to the top of iTunes charts in various countries across the globe. As of 7 a.m. KST on August 2, “NewJeans” had hit No. 1 on iTunes Top Albums charts in at least nine different regions, including Thailand, Finland, Indonesia, and Russia.
