Ateez 'Eternal Sunshine' MV: Pre-orders for 'Fever Part 3' cross 810K
Ateez get ready for their first OT8 comeback of the year with their 8th EP 'Fever Part 3'; drop teaser for the 'Eternal Sunshine' music video
Atinys can’t seem to get away from ‘8 Makes 1 Team’. Known to be Ateez’s slogan, the number 8 is special as the group has 8 members. And 'Fever Part 3' happens to be the first OT8 comeback of the year after Mingi returned from his hiatus. It looks like their agency, KQ has also jumped on the bandwagon because they held off from announcing the pre-order sales till today. On September 11, it was revealed that ‘Fever Part 3’ had 810,000 pre-orders. 'Fever Part 3' is also their 8th EP. Additionally, Ateez has also dropped a music video teaser for ‘Eternal Sunshine’.
While fans were jokingly lamenting that the numbers 8 and 1 will always haunt them, Ateez surreptitiously dropped the teaser for ‘Eternal Sunshine’s’ music video. ‘Fever Part 3’ continues the title track voting tradition and had asked fans to vote for either ‘Eternal Sunshine’ or ‘Deja Vu’ as the title track. They had also roped in celebrities like Pentatonix's Scott Hoying, Mamamoo's Moonbyul and sports announcer Jung Wooyoung to vote. And with the polls closing, fans wonder which track has won and become the title track.

While ‘Deja Vu’ was in the lead, the votes flip-flopped and currently no one knows which track will win. ‘Deja Vu’ is an eerie dance-trap song with hip-hop elements and leans towards Ateez’s usual dark and fierce sound that fans love. But other bright and refreshing concepts also hold a soft spot for Atinys since their first summer song ‘Wave’ got Ateez their first music show win. This is why ‘Eternal Sunshine’ also has a huge backing in terms of votes since it is a peppy and cheery pop song.
Its music video seems to be equally fun and vibrant as hinted from the concept photos and the music video teaser. The teaser is as colorful as it can get with saturated sets, the boys sporting bright outfits and animated props. We see Ateez enjoying themselves and dancing in a carefree manner. The music video teaser for 'Deja Vu' will be released on September 12 at 6 pm KST (5 am ET).
