For the second consecutive year, NCT Dream has landed on Billboard‘s “21 Under 21” list!
On September 12, Billboard released their “21 Under 21 2019: Music’s Next Generation” list. This list features 21 artists under the age of 21 who have a big influence on the music industry. The list uses factors like album sales, social media presence, streaming volume, reputation among peers, career trajectory, and overall impact on the industry among others.
With so many factors going into the list, earning a spot on it certainly isn’t easy but among names like Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X, and Why Don’t We, NCT Dream landed firmly on this year’s list and for the second year in a row too!
Last year, they placed at no. 20 while this year they climbed to no. 13. While the moment was already amazing, the moment was made even more special as they were the only Asian artist to make the list! Additionally, they’re also the first Asian artists to make the list for two consecutive years!
Congratulations NCT Dream!
