    On August 7, 2019, Capitol Music Group chairman Steve Barnett and SM Entertainment announced the formation of a K-Pop Super Boy Group to be called SuperM at Capitol Congress 2019.

SuperM held their debut concert at the Capitol Records Building in Los Angeles on October 5 and made their television debut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on October 9. The group also embarked on their first tour, We Are the Future Live, in North America in late 2019-early 2020. The tour was extended to Latin America and Europe in February 2020 before their planned concert at the Tokyo Dome in Japan was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
