YG’s new boy group WINNER has been topping 9 charts for 2 consecutive days.
The title track “EMPTY” from their debut album “2014 S/S” released at 0 hour of August 12 stood at #1 on South Korea’s largest music site Melon, and also on 8 others like Mnet, Genie, Olleh Music, Soribada, Monkey 3, Bugs Music, Daum Music and Naver Music at 7 am on August 13.
The other title track “COLOR RING” is also a runner-up on 7 charts, while other songs like “Don’t Flirt,” “Confession,” “I’m Him” and “But” are being lined up on charts.
It is quite unprecedented for a new group to sweep across all charts immediately after their album release. The achievement is especially meaningful since all members were involved in writing and composing the entire album. Their “lining up” of songs on several charts, which is rare even for top artists, is arousing much attention as well.
“EMPTY,” a song that expresses the emptiness after a breakup in hiphop, is a joint work by BOBBY and B.I from WINNER’s former competitor B TEAM on WIN, and is written by SONG MINHO. “COLOR RING” is a work by KANG SEUNG YOON, SONG MIN HO and LEE SEUNG HOON, in which KANG SEUNG YOON was in charge as the main producer.
WINNER’s first official debut performance will be on August 15 when YG Family holds their concert ‘AIA REAL LIFE: NOW FESTIVAL 2014′ at Seoul’s Jamsil Sports Complex.
