Kpop sensations and soon to be US Pop sensations, MONSTA X, make history with their new EP, "The Connect: Dejavu" which sold 2,000 traditional albums in the week ending March 29 landing them squarely on the US Billboard Charts.
Billboard noted, “...This was enough to land the guys at No. 2 on Billboard's World Albums chart and a No. 8 debut on Heatseekers Albums -- a new peak for the band on the chart that sees far fewer K-pop acts land entries.”
“We can’t wait to come back to the US to tour for our fans. Our “Monbebes” are supporting us and we look forward to making even more friends when we tour this time. We feel more excited about this tour because of so much growth” says, I.M. rapper from Monsta X.
The bands latest video “Jealousy” is up to nearly 7 Million views on Youtube and growing daily adding to the over 20 million views of their previous releases:
Their style is more aggressive than other artists in the genre combining rap, rock and dance moves to great acclaim among fans. Teen Vogue wrote: “...Monsta X, to put it simply, go hard.”
