The monster rookie group is seriously killing it this comeback.
It’s been just over 12 hours since ATEEZ released their music video for “INCEPTION”, and already the song and respective album, Zero : Fever Part. 1, are easily beating every record that the group has set for themselves in previous comebacks. The group even created a list of comeback goals for the MV and album before they came out, and they’ve basically already met nearly every goal on the list and then some!
1. 10 Million Views on YouTube in 24 Hours
While they haven’t yet hit 10 million views, they’ve accumulated nearly 7.5 million in just over 12 hours, which means they are well on their way to meeting the first goal of 10 million views in 24 hours!
2. 400k Likes on YouTube in 24 Hours
As of the time of this writing, the music video has over 500k likes, which is well over the 400k they were hoping to achieve in 24 hours already!
3. Top 10 Worldwide Trending on YouTube
Six hours after release, the music video was trending at #1 worldwide, which is absolutely huge for this rookie group and might not even be the highest point they reach on worldwide trending!
4. Enter the Genie Top 200 Chart
This is the first time that ATEEZ has made it onto Genie’s Top 100 list, ranking at #79! Their goal was to make it into the top 200, so this is amazing!
5. Enter the BUGS Top 100 Chart
They also made it onto the BUGS Top 100 chart, with “THANXX” ranking at #51 and “INCEPTION” ranking at #61!
6. 45k Album Sales in 24 Hours
The album sold an incredible 110k copies in the first 20 MINUTES after its release, surpassing their 45k sale in 24 hours goal by a tremendous amount.
7. 250k Total Album Sales
Because of the huge amount of sales in just the first 12 hours since the album’s release, there should be no trouble for the album to reach 250k total sales!
8. Spotify Streams and Viral 50
The data on the Spotify streams doesn’t appear to be accurate at this time, but considering how much fans are streaming and how well the album and songs are doing on other platforms, once the app gets caught up, they’ll likely have met these goals too!
9. #1 on the iTunes Worldwide Albums Chart
ATEEZ is currently at #2 on the Worldwide Albums chart on iTunes, surpassed only by Taylor Swift, but they are listed at #1 on the U.S. K-Pop chart and are the only K-Pop act at the moment to have their entire album discography trending within the top 30 of that list!
10. Reach the Top 10 on iTunes Global Digital Artists chart
Right now, ATEEZ is ranked at #18 on the iTunes Global Digital Artist list, and it wouldn’t be surprising if they jump up on the list as fans continue to stream and make it into the top 10 like they hope!
11. Reach #1 Trending Album on iTunes in 40 Countries
While the album isn’t yet trending at #1 in 40 different countries, it is trending #1 in many different ones, as well as within the top 3 in several others!
12. Reach the Top 30 on the U.S. iTunes Songs Chart
Right now, “INCEPTION” is ranking at #34 on the U.S. iTunes Songs chart, which is incredibly close to their goal to reach the top 30.
