Following their surpassing of 10 million monthly Spotify listeners, the group has now entered the exclusive 12 million Spotify club, becoming the first group to do so.

Exploring Jennie’s “You & Me”

Jennie is making waves with her latest special single, “You & Me.” The track, accompanied by a performance video, is her second solo release after “SOLO” in 2018.
