KPOP girl group ‘Brave Girls’ enjoy belated success on music charts with ‘Rollin’

K-pop act Brave Girls are basking in belated music chart success with their song, “Rollin’,” which was released four years ago.

The song has dominated the real-time charts of major streaming platforms, including Bugs and Genie, as of Tuesday afternoon. This is the first time the group has accomplished such a feat since its debut in 2011.

The EDM track’s belated popularity largely stems from a video posted Feb. 24 on the YouTube channel named “VIDITOR.” The three-minute clip ― which features the online users’ comments on their “Rollin'” performances ― went viral, attracting more than 3.8 million views as of Tuesday.

“While I was serving my compulsory military service, ‘Rollin’ was extremely popular among all soldiers,” reads a comment on the video. “We watched the performance videos hundreds of times.”

Another wrote, “I really hoped this song would climb back up the charts ― it is such a great tune.”

After its surprisingly sudden popularity, the channel on Feb. 28 uploaded another three-minute video, which has garnered 1.4 million views.

Brave Girls member Yujeong says it is unbelievable.

“All our members shed tears after hearing the news,” she said on a radio program Monday. “We are truly thankful to everyone who helped us top the charts.”

Brave Girls debuted with the album “The Difference.” The group was formed by Brave Brothers, who produced songs for big-name K-pop bands, including BIGBANG, Sistar and Brown Eyed Girls.

This occasion is not the first time that a K-pop song has been brought back to the media spotlight, thanks to belated popularity via YouTube; 2PM’s “My House” (2015) was among such songs last year.
