It’s been 2 weeks since Next Level came out yet it’s daily UL’s have been steadily increasing. Aespa just earned their first Top 5 hit on Melon today...they are the first 4th Gen group to do so on the new Melon Chart!
It’s the fact they entered the top 5 whilst going going head to head with much more senior artists/digital monsters. The charts are so fierce right now with BTS, Oh My Girl, Brave Girls and Heize yet Aespa have managed to hold their own really well. Super impressive for a 6 month rookie group. Even more impressive that they’re doing this with their first comeback.
I predict their next comeback will be even bigger. I just know SM is saving the big grand slam for their first album. Honestly deserved, especially after everyone bashing them and calling them flops at debut. The sky is the limit for Aespa
