GOT7 continue to prove that they are one of the leading K-pop groups of the third-gen. We had antis and trolls mocking fans as GOT7 left their old agency JYPE and went on an unofficial hiatus as they expanded their solo career in 2021. We even had the media commenting that GOT7 had technically disbanded while haters claimed that even if they came back they would not be successful. It looks like this reached the GOT7 members, especially Bambam and Youngjae as they came back with a vengeance. After breaking several personal records, GOT7 has now made iTunes history.

GOT7 released their self-titled album ‘GOT7’ with self-composed tracks on May 23. Even though its promotional period was brief, fans were touched when Jackson revealed that they had cleared their busy individual schedules to get together just for the comeback and that GOT7 would always be their top priority. Well, to show their gratitude Ahgases (GOT7’s fandom) have gone on to chart the album on iTunes in 100 countries in just eight days.
