Looks like Atinys (Ateez’s fandom) will never be able to escape the number 8. Other than the ‘Deja Vu’ era being the first OT8 comeback of the year, it looks like the album ‘Fever Part 3’ is Ateez’s 8th EP. And what other way to prove that 8 is Ateez’s lucky number than to break several records on YouTube, as well as global charts like Billboard with ‘Fever Part 3’. Atinys also found it hilarious that the agency KQ, revealed Ateez’s pre-orders once it crossed 810k which is a callback to their motto ‘8 Makes 1 Team’.

Well, the 8th EP is finally getting Ateez the recognition they deserve, as the first week sales for ‘Fever Part 3’ almost doubled from their previous album with more than 665k sales. This makes them the first fourth-gen group to achieve this. And it looks like the third time’s the charm, since ‘Fever Part 3’ makes Ateez the only K-pop act to have three albums top the Worldwide iTunes Album Chart in the same year, i.e. 2021. Well, now they’re on Billboard.

Ateez debut on Billboard 200

‘Fever Part 3’ did well on domestic, as well as international charts, like Genie, Bugs, MelOn and iTunes in 41 countries. But Ateez’s newest dream was to at least enter the Billboard charts. And now they’ve done that and more. Not only are they on one, but they have entered seven charts while debuting on Billboard 200. Their first entry on Billboard 200 was at #42 which is impressive as they are competing against albums of major pop stars. 



Ateez is also #1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists and #30 on the Artist 100 chart. The title track of the album, ‘Deja Vu’ ranked at #4 on the World Digital Songs Sales chart. Additionally, ‘Fever Part 3’ is #1 on the World Albums chart, #3 on the Current Album Sales chart and #6 on the Top Album Sales chart. With 8 being Atiny and Ateez’s number, fans couldn’t help but jokingly hope that the group could enter one more chart making it a total of 8 Billboard charts.

'You made it'

But while Atinys everywhere were celebrating as the news dropped on September 20, it was night in South Korea. And so everyone has been trending #WAKEUPATEEZ with posts like, “So atinys, how does it feel to watch ateez grow and succeed right in front of your eyes?” “This is seriously just CRAZY. My heart is bursting with pride for these boys! You deserve the world and more!” and “Me trying to #WAKEUPATEEZ.” “I’d pay kq to upload a video of ateez’s reaction to the charts in the morning,” said one Atiny. Another added, “YOU MADE IT! @ATEEZofficial.”
