NewJeans, the rising K-pop sensation from HYBE LABELS, has taken the music industry by storm with their latest mini album, “Get Up.” The talented quintet, comprising members Minji, Hanni, Danielle, Haerin, and Hyein, introduced new and innovative concepts with this comeback, capturing the hearts of music enthusiasts worldwide. The EP’s unprecedented success has led to several groundbreaking achievements, including topping the Billboard 200 albums chart and making history as the first girl group to achieve such a feat in 2023.

“Get Up” Soars to No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart

On August 3, NewJeans made an unforgettable mark on the music scene by debuting at No. 1 on the prestigious Billboard 200 albums chart with their EP, “Get Up.” This remarkable achievement was a first for the group, as it marked their maiden entry on the chart, soaring directly to the top position. The album garnered an impressive 126,500 equivalent units in the United States during the week ending on July 27, according to Luminate.

Setting Records in K-pop

“Get Up” is not only a major milestone for NewJeans but also a significant achievement for female K-pop groups in general. The album’s success made NewJeans only the second female K-pop group to achieve the No. 1 position on the Billboard 200 chart, following in the footsteps of BLACKPINK’s “Born Pink,” which reached the pinnacle in September 2022. Since 2008, “Get Up” and “Born Pink” remain the only two albums by all-female groups to achieve this coveted top spot.

Elite Company on the Billboard 200

NewJeans’ feat on the Billboard 200 albums chart places them among an exclusive group of K-pop artists who have reached the No. 1 position in recent years. The group now joins the ranks of illustrious acts like BTS, Super M, Stray Kids, BLACKPINK, and TOMORROW X TOGETHER, solidifying their position as a force to be reckoned with in the global music industry.

NewJeans’ Impact on Billboard Hot 100

As if topping the Billboard 200 chart wasn’t enough, NewJeans has also made an indelible mark on the prestigious Billboard Hot100. Their title track, “Super Shy,” debuted at an impressive No. 66, further climbing to No. 48, marking the group’s highest-charting song on the Hot 100 to date. Additionally, the other two title tracks from the “Get Up” EP, “ETA” and “Cool With You,” secured notable positions at No. 81 and No. 93, respectively. This groundbreaking achievement makes NewJeans the first-ever female group in K-pop history to simultaneously chart three songs on the Billboard Hot100.


NewJeans’ meteoric rise to the top of international music charts with their EP “Get Up” has not only solidified their position as a top-tier K-pop girl group but also set new records and benchmarks for female acts in the industry. Their infectious music and innovative concepts have resonated with fans globally, propelling them to unprecedented success. With such remarkable achievements under their belt, NewJeans is undoubtedly a group to watch as they continue to conquer the music world with their talent and creativity.
