GOT7 is back with a bang and there is no one to stop them as they continue to break records. While trolls and antis had claimed that they had unofficially disbanded or that their comeback would not do well since they were on hiatus for a year, GOT7 and their fans proved them wrong. The boy group has shared on numerous occasions that they came back with a vengeance because of those who doubted them and their fans and now they have gone on to take over charts like iTunes with their best-selling album yet.

GOT7 had parted ways with their old label JYPE in 2021 and focused on their solo careers for the remainder of the year. However, they reunited and dropped their self-titled album ‘GOT7’ on May 23. The self-composed album and its title track ‘NANANA’ made by leader Jay B has now gone on to break records. It has been reported that ‘GOT7’ did well domestically, as well as internationally as it topped iTunes Album Chart in 95 countries and keeps growing.
