Additionally, they’ve also been invited to the K-pop star, Jessi’s own variety show.
TXT are getting ready to release a new album soon, but MOAs are not ready to let go of their last album ‘Freeze’. As TXT’s second studio album, it was released back in May. However, it is still breaking records and charting on several music charts all around the world including Billboard. ‘Freeze’ happens to be the first and only K-pop album to have stayed on Billboard 200 chart for seven whole weeks.
