It seems like NewJeans‘ popularity just keeps growing every day, despite the girl group debuting less than three months ago!
They’ve been ranking high on various music charts, breaking records for rookie K-Pop groups, and are well on their way to winning end-of-the-year music show awards.
And when it comes to streaming, they’re taking the lead for all fourth generation groups!
In a listed ranking for the top 40 K-Pop artists with the most monthly listeners on Spotify — which is different than followers in that monthly listeners are those actively listening to their music — NewJeans is ranked the highest of any fourth generation K-Pop group. This is despite having just four songs in their discography so far!
They come in sixth overall in K-Pop artists with the most monthly listeners, surpassed only by BTS, BLACKPINK, Jungkook, TWICE, and Lisa, all of which are huge names in K-Pop.
At this time, they have a total of 8.70 million monthly listeners. The fourth generation K-Pop artist with the next-most monthly listeners, IVE, currently has 7.95 million followers, with TXT coming shortly after with 7.48 million.
It really goes to show just how huge of an impact NewJeans has already had on the K-Pop industry as monster rookies!
