YuaremySin posted a topic in GFRIEND News, Charts, & SalesCourtesy Photo GFriend, "Fever" K-pop girl group GFriend are back today (July 1) with their summery sweet single “Fever,” the lead track of their Fever Season EP. A sleek dance track all about the heat of a romance that doesn’t diminish even during the cool nighttime, “Fever” is the perfect show of GFriend’s six members’ expressive vocals, building over chilly synths, beat drops, and a moombahton-inspired rhythm. Based around a summery nighttime romance, the music video for “Fever” features Sowon, Yerin, Eunha, Yuju, SinB, and Umji singing about the love that they want to have without regrets amid tropical imagery. Greenery, sunsets, cacti, deserts, and what appears to be a gas station serve as backdrops to their captivating choreography full of powerful movements. "Fever" and Fever Season come half a year after the release of GFriend's Time for UsLP, fronted by the single "Sunrise," and a few months after the release of their Japanese song "Flower," which is featured in a Korean-language variant on the new album. Since their start in 2015, GFriend have regularly appeared on the World Albums chart, with seven of their albums, appearing over the years. Most recently, Time For Us peaked at No. 12 on the chart dated Jan. 26. Along with "Fever" and "Flower," the new album features six other tracks, including an instrumental version of "Fever" and "Hope," which features lyrics written by GFriend's members.

YuaremySin posted a topic in GFRIEND News, Charts, & SalesCongrats to our GFRIEND girls!
singermelodie1 posted a topic in GFRIEND News, Charts, & SalesSince their unexpected smash debut at the top of 2015, GFriend has solidified themselves as one of the top K-pop girl groups to watch with their latest release marking the nostalgic act's best chart showing to-date. The sextet's new EP The Awakening debuts at No. 5 on Billboard's World Albums chart, which is the group's best-ever showing and scores GFriend the biggest K-pop album in America this week. The girls have been slowly making their way up the chart, first bowing with 2016's Snowflake EP, which peaked at No. 10, and followed by their full-length album LOLthat topped out at No. 7 that summer. The Awakening is also the highest debut on World Albums this week. The Awakening is led by the single "Fingertip," which starts at No. 13 on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart. That's just below GFriend's best showing on the tally when 2016's "Navillera" peaked at No. 12. While GFriend has primarily been focused on a bubblegum sound that recalls the '90s and '00s era of K-pop, The Awakening elevates these elements for the group's most powerful sonic statement yet. Lead single "Fingertip" sees longtime producers Iggy and Seo Yongbae blending the ladies' emotional vocal delivery with powerful guitar chords, blasts of funk horns, and synthpop beats that sound snatched from another era. Albums cuts like "Hear the Wind Sing," "Rain in the Spring Time" and "Contrail" also make the beats and production more prominent with "Hear the Wind Sing" even seeing the girls dip into a bit of an part-house-part-disco sound to brilliant results. While it's not a full sonic departure for the act, overall the EP indicates exciting new places where GFriend could venture. So far, the group has released four EPs and one full LP. With their first U.S. performance this past August at KCON Los Angeles, the charts indicate that a supportive fanbase could be naturally growing stateside and their next release could see them hitting even higher chart heights.
