All four songs have been released as singles with music videos and performances promoted on music shows. Consequently, their songs have hit the top of the charts.topped As of August 15th, spots 1-4 of Spotify Korea's Top Daily Song Charts have been topped by their entire EP! And they aren't just popular on Korean charts! The group has charted with "Attention" and "Hype Boy" on the Billboard Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. charts.
NewJeans have also already scored their first win on a music show! For K-pop idols, winning their first show is a big deal. Usually, idols work hard for years and break down into tears when they win.
