TXT is a growing world sensation being ranked 140 in the US Billboard 200, becoming the highest-charting debut album by any male K-pop group
TomorrowXTogether aka TXT is a Korean band comprising Soobin, Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Taehyun and Hueningkai. The band was formed by the Big Hit Entertainment company, the same one that manages BTS. TXT debuted with a concept (or storyline), based on the idea of adolescence and coming of age.
Their debut song 'Crown' racked up over 14 million views on YouTube in its first 24 hours and dominated Twitter trends. They were a sensation that gained popularity worldwide, especially in the United States, within a very short time.
They recently featured live with 'Meant to Be' singer Bebe Rexha on Instagram. Rexha took to Twitter to announce the live meeting that was trending on Twitter with the hashtag #BebeRexhaWithTXT and #REXHAwithTXT.
In 2019, they debuted with the album 'The Dream Chapter- Star' that peaked at number one on the Gaon Album Chart and Billboard World Albums Chart. It was also ranked number 140 in the US Billboard 200, becoming the highest-charting debut album by any male K-pop group.
It also ranked the No 1 spot on the iTunes Top Albums chart, made them dominate worldwide Twitter trends and sign a US distribution deal with Republic Records.
In April 2019, they announced their first overseas tour in the US — New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas, Orlando and Atlanta. Their tickets were sold out in less than 10 minutes.
Since the global superstar K-pop band Bangtan Boys aka BTS made their debut worldwide, TXT was the next hit sensation around the world. "We've had worries, but we will work hard to not cause any harm to their reputation," leader Soobin said while talking about BTS, during their debut showcase.
TXT's commercial success in their early months earned them several rookie awards at major Korean year-end music award shows, including the Asia Artist Awards, Melon Music Awards, Mnet Asian Music Awards, Golden Disc Awards, Gaon Chart Music Awards and Seoul Music Awards in 2019.
In January 2020, TXT made their Japanese debut with the single 'Magic Hour' which includes Japanese versions of the songs 'Run Away', 'Crown' and 'Angel or Devil'. The single debuted at number one on the Oricon daily chart and at number two on the Oricon's Weekly Singles Chart.
During an interview in 2019, Soobin confessed that he is a fan of Rexha. He also mentioned that he hopes to sing with her one day. Rexha responded on her Twitter, "Awww Soobin so sweet," marking the beginning of their friendship.
It was a surprise when Rexha announced on Twitter that she was going live with the K-Pop band on Instagram. She has also uploaded the live meeting on her Youtube channel.
Rexha and TXT had a very fun chat. She asked Soobin which was his favorite song of hers and he replied, "I love 'Meant to Be' because it has a very beautiful lyrics" to which she responded, "My favorite was listening to your one song non-stop recently, it was nine and three quarter, cause it makes me happy."
They talked for about 14 mins, discussing songs, wishing for future collaborations, talking about their likes and dislikes and making plans to meet if and when TXT comes to Los Angeles.
