Ben&Ben is making waves once again on South Korea's music charts.
On May 28, Friday, the nine-piece group trended *number one* on South Korea's streaming platform Melon. Wow!
"We trended #1 again last night in Korea. Grateful! This is all because of you."
Claiming the number two spot on the site was Ben&Ben's song "Leaves," featuring a surprise collab with Young K of South Korean rock band Day6. The "Leaves" official music video premiered at midnight on May 28, with over half a million views as of this writing. The band says that the song's message, given the current situation the world is in, is that "all will be alright in time."
This isn't the first time Ben&Ben trended number one on Melon. Their songs are super catchy, even K-pop idols like Red Velvet's Wendy; TWICE's Momo; NCT's Mark, Renjun, and Chenle; Young K, too; and Astro's Cha Eun Woo love their sound! In August 2020, the band even did covers of K-pop songs as requested by their fans.
Ben&Ben is also on the cover of Spotify's Pop Rising Korea and on Spotify's "New Music Friday" playlist for "Leaves."
