Following their debut album, NewJeans is ready for another massive hit. On December 19, NewJeans premiered the song “Ditto” off their single album “OMG” at 6 pm KST (2:30 pm IST). The song tops the real-time Melon, Bugs, and Genie charts on domestic music websites after its release at 6 pm KST. Immediately following its release, “Ditto” was ranked first, third, and fourth on Bugs, Genie, and Melon. On the 19th, starting at 8:00 pm, it topped all real-time charts.
“Ditto” was extremely well-liked both in Korea and overseas. At 7 am on December 20, “Ditto” was the number-one song on the iTunes Top Song Chart in seven countries and regions, including the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. Additionally, on Weibo, China’s most important social network service, the day the album was launched, it came in second for real-time search terms.
NewJeans also set a record for the quickest girl group to achieve Real-Time All-Kill with Ditto, doing it in just 15 hours, with all these achievements. Before their debut, Attention, they only received one in ten days. This is RAK’s second-fastest song of 2022!
The song “Ditto” from NewJeans’ debut winter album, “OMG,” is a recreation of the Baltimore club dance music genre and NewJeans’ unique taste, and it has a different charm than their debut song from last summer. The title track from NewJeans’ August-released first album, “NewJeans,” held the top position on the Melon Daily Chart for 18 days, while “Hype Boy” initially held the position before dropping back. It rose to the highest rank of the second over the previous seven days. In this case, “Cookie” is getting a lot of Attention, and NewJeans launched a trend simultaneously.
After posting a holiday-themed video on its official social media accounts on December 21, NewJeans intends to continue its rising trend by releasing the single album “OMG” on January 2.
