I really dont get in K-Pop when u just released an album, and the next year u release another one

So how is that a comeback? :calculating_confused_meme_blonde_math_woman_thinking_what:

This is going to be long... :eyes_britney_laugh:

A "comeback'' is any new release that is promoted with a "title track". To make it even more confusing, a "title track" is any lead single. :miley_cyrus_stare_meme: Most K-Pop groups come back once or twice a year, but some do it 3 or even 4 times. However, it's not like they release 3 studio albums a year. Here are the most typical formats for K-Pop comebacks / releases:

  • digital single (1 song with no physical release)
  • single album (1 - 3 songs with a physical release)
  • mini album (a fancy name for an EP; 3 - 9ish songs with a physical release)
  • full album / studio album
  • repackage / reissue / special album (1 - 5ish new songs tacked on to a previous album including a new title track)

Usually, K-Pop artists don't milk the same album for two years by releasing 8 singles. It is common to promote only the title track (basically, like having only one lead single). Though, some groups do release follow-up singles from an album after they're done promoting the title track, which is usually done for 2 - 3 weeks (with deviations, of course). :typing_keyboard_computer: Furthermore, it has become increasingly common to release pre-release singles, which is basically like releasing droplet singles, but the difference is that a follow-up album is 100% certain. Usually, there's one pre-release single, but BLACKPINK did two - "How You Like That" and "Ice Cream". :)

Thanks for enlightening us Non-Kpop fans :miley_cyrus_stare_meme:

I kinda fell out of love with BTS after LY: Tear (I still listened to their title tracks, but I didn't bother listening to their albums), but for some reason I was super excited for BE, so I can't wait to listen to it! Will update this with my thoughts once I actually do. :katycream_perry_witness_nod_yes: I'm in a video lecture right now, though. The only thing I have managed to do is look at the line distribution, and Jin got scammed again. :notfeelinit_ny_tiffany_pollard_miss_ms_new_york_meme_sunglasses_bed_mad_waiting_crossed_hands:

It's a cute little bop; though, I don't see it doing too well on the American charts. It is probably going to be one of those songs that go #1 purely because of fans and then free fall, but you never know. I'm willing to stand corrected. :katycream_perry_witness_nod_yes:

I love it. I always want them to go back to "Spring Day". This isn't "Spring Day", but at least it's something different. I dont know if this song can go No.1 though. It will free fall for sure, buy "Dynamite" is holding in Top 20 so strong after a few months.

Well Meghan Thee Fad won’t be going to number one next week. Welp. Curious how many are US fans that affect our iTunes Charts or how many of them are international :heresthetea_reading_telling_glasses_talking_preaching_facts_paper_wendy_williams:

I've seen fans of other groups make PayPal campaigns where they collect and raise money from fans all over the world, so that they can bulk-purchase on US iTunes and stuff, so that it counts towards Billboard. However, we affect Korean charts too if we order albums from Korea, which is most often the only way. Unfortunately, that's the awkward state (non-US) international fans are in if they want to support their faves in a meaningful way. :idkney_britney_glory_carpool_karaoke_unsure_idk_nervous:

I get what they’re doing, but it’s unfortunate they have to resort to this to impact our charts. It doesn’t really reflect the demand for their music in our market, but it seems like that when campaigns like that over inflate their status here. I’m still bitter 2NE1 never got this exposure, lmao

Yeah, I agree, but I don't think there's anything that could be done about it. I guess iTunes could impose a limit on how many purchases of the same song / album can be made if there already isn't one. But if one can physically buy 5 copies of the same album at a store, why should there be a limit on iTunes purchases, y'know? Idk, it's very complicated... :idkney_britney_glory_carpool_karaoke_unsure_idk_nervous: Doesn't really matter, though. At this point, all of us are aware of the fact that what makes a hit isn't the peak but the longevity. :katycream_perry_witness_nod_yes:
