According to a chart released by Billboard on the 10th (local time), ATEEZ ranked 7th in the ‘Social 50’ category, after BTS, Ariana Grande, and Seventeen.
This is a 9-step increase from the 16th place last week, and their album ‘ZERO: FEVER Part.1’ released in July is still receiving attention with its hot popularity even after the official activities ended.
Billboard’s ‘Social 50’ chart, an American music media outlet, is a chart that selects artists that are hot on social media such as YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. ATEEZ are famous for their rich contents, such as releasing performance videos through seasonal events. Accordingly, the total number of followers by each official SNS channel has recently exceeded 8 million through steady new inflows and online comments.
Previously, ATEEZ had a tour in Europe last year and entered the ‘Social 50’ chart for the first time after half a year from their debut, and then placed 3rd after their 4th mini album ‘TREASURE EPILOGUE: Action To Answer’ released in January. It has achieved industry attention. In particular, it has proved the power of a strong global fandom by being listed on the chart 75 times so far.
ATEEZ, who recently reached 1 million followers on ‘Spotify’ and exceeded 400 million in total streaming, are currently meeting fans through the original Kakao TV ‘ATEEZ Fever Road’ and 1theK entertainment ‘Child Teacher’.
