in Korean charting at least. Reason is simple, BEP is their producer, and he produced cheer up, TT, and Fancy for Twice. So it’s only a matter of time before he makes another national hit for StayC.
In fact, if we look at StayC’s performance, they went from not charting on Melon top 100 (mostly due to from a new company) to peaking at top 10 with their first comeback, that improvement is actually insane. So knowing BEP only makes public friendly songs, their next comeback will almost be a guaranteed top 5.
Their only competitors will be from the Big 4:
Aespa –We know that SM likes to be experimental, so mostly likely their songs will be hit or miss. In Next Level’s case, it’s a hit, but you never know how well the next song will chart. You can see this trend with RV, and it will probably carry on with Aespa.
YGNGG – this is the only unknown. If Teddy is their producer, then YGNGG will outchart every other 4th gen group. If Teddy is not their producer, than StayC will remain #1.
BHNGG – we know nothing at this point.
*This is only talking about charting potential. Not counting Album sales, streams/views, because we know the big 4 will always have a huge advantage in that regard.
