Girl group NewJeans expressed their feelings about topping the Billboard 200 chart as "unrealistic." After their debut just one year ago, they achieved 1st place on the Billboard 200 and successfully completed their first performance in the United States at "Lollapalooza Chicago." On the 7th, they shared their thoughts through their agency, ADOR.
NewJeans performed on the opening day of Lollapalooza, August 3rd (local time), at 5 PM, on the 'T-MOBILE' stage at Grant Park in Chicago. Approximately 70,000 people gathered at the scene, singing along in chorus to NewJeans' songs, making it the largest audience seen during a 5 PM performance, as reported by Chicago Sun-Times.
With their mini 2nd album 'Get Up,' NewJeans secured the 1st place on the Billboard 200 chart (as of August 5th), and three title tracks from the album made their way into the Billboard Hot 100 chart, proving their growing global influence. Member Minji shared her initial thoughts about topping the Billboard 200 chart, saying, "I was really surprised when I first heard the news. I sincerely thank all our fans, the Bernies (official fan club name), around the world for their support and love. We will repay them with even better music in the future."
