NCT 127 'Favorite': Release date, music video and all about 'Sticker' reissue
NCT 127 are vampires in love in the music video for 'Favorite'
NCT 127 is making a name for itself in the noise genre and doing it well. The flute-heavy title track ‘Sticker’ and its album was a commercial success from getting 1 million pre-orders on the first day itself and making history on several Billboard charts to music show wins. The boy group got 10 music show wins for the ‘Sticker’ era. The album also has more than 2.2 million sales and is bound to get certified as a double million by music charts. And still riding on the success, NCT 127 is set to have a comeback once more with ‘Favorite’.
The second half of 2021 has been quite a busy year for NCT 127. After their Japanese album ‘Loveholic’ in February, fans wondered what the boys were up to. But they’re making up for lost time with ‘Sticker’ which was dropped in September and are set to release its reissue album ‘Favorite’. The repackaged album is also competing with ‘Sticker’ by getting 1.06 million pre-orders on October 24. There are also rumors that after 'Favorite', NCT 127 will be reuniting with their 23 members for NCT 2021.
