Rookie K-pop boy band CRAVITY reigned atop an album chart in Japan ― even without making an official debut there.
Retail music franchise Tower Records said that the nine-piece act’s latest release “CRAVITY SEASON 2. HIDEOUT : THE NEW DAY WE STEP INTO” topped its chart for weekly album sales (Aug. 24-30) in Japan. But it did not reveal how many copies were sold.
“CRAVITY is yet to make an official debut in Japan, but nonetheless pulled off such a musical feat,” the group’s record label Starship Entertainment said Thursday. The album, dropped on Aug. 24, has the lead song “FLAME,” an urban hip-hop track that highlights the band’s “fiery passion” through the lyrics. The album also offers six B-sides, including the mid-tempo “Believer” and the groovy “Ohh Ahh.”
On Tuesday, the K-pop act won a music show in Korea for the first time since its debut here in April. With “FLAME,” it was crowned the winner on SBS MTV’s “THE SHOW.” CRAVITY ― comprising Serim, Allen, Jungmo, Woobin, Wonjin, Minhee, Hyeongjun, Taeyoung, and Seongmin ― released its first album “CRAVITY SEASON 1. HIDEOUT : REMEMBER WHO WE ARE” on April 14.
