aespa debuted in November last year with their first digital single “Black Mamba.” The song entered the iTunes Charts in 95 countries around the world. Moreover, the music video for “Black Mamba” has attained two best records.

The first one is the highest number of views in the first 24 hours for a debut MV. On Nov. 18 at 6 p.m. KST, the music video reached 21,425,062 views on YouTube, surpassing ITZY’s “DALLA DALLA” with 17.1 million views.

The other milestone aespa attained is the shortest time for a debut MV to hit 100 million views on YouTube. On Jan. 8 at 5:37 a.m. KST, the music video for “Black Mamba” surpassed 100 million views. This means it only took one month, 21 days, and 11 hours to obtain the number of views.

Again, aespa’s “Black Mamba” beat the record set by the debut MV for ITZY’s “DALLA DALLA,” which scored the milestone in one month and 28 days.

The rookie group’s debut single entered the Billboard World Digital Songs chart, claiming the No. 5 spot. This is the highest ranking of a K-pop debut song on the chart.

Meanwhile, aespa released a new song titled “Forever” this past February. It is a remake of a track by Yoo Young Jin that was launched for SM Entertainment’s holiday album “Winter Vacation in SMTOWN.”
