Stray Kids’ latest album ‘NOEASY’ has been talked about ever since the news about it was dropped. The boys introduced it in the most fun way possible by releasing a meta, fourth-wall-breaking, Deadpool-style cinematic trailer followed by mini music video teasers for almost every track in the album. The lead single ‘Thunderous’ also had fans excited as we got a glimpse of the chorus in the teaser and the full music video met expectations.

It should also be noted that last week, the pre-orders reached 830K sales and on the very last day before the release, ‘NOEASY’ garnered a total of 930K pre-orders. This broke their own record of best-selling albums which previously belonged to their repackaged album ‘In Life’. ‘NOEASY’ is also the album with the highest pre-orders in JYP Entertainment. And since its release on August 23, the album continues to top charts and break records.
