Near the end of 2014, the band signed with the Japanese branch of Sony Music Entertainment and used the label to enter the Japanese market. Their debut single in the country was called “Around the World” and the lyrics were in Japanese. Just a month later they returned to their home country of South Korea and released “Identify”, their first full studio album. The album topped the music charts in the nation.
In 2016, they released “Moriagatteyo“, their first full Japanese studio album. It made its debut in the number three position in the Oricon Albums Chart. Over the years they have released many more singles and albums. Got7’s highest selling album was “Flight Log: Arrival”, which sold over three hundred thousand copies.
“Eyes On You” is the band’s latest EP. It was only released this year and has already sold over a quarter of a million copies. It is their eighth official EP. The band spent May and June of 2018 touring around Japan. The tour was to promote “THE New Era”, their latest Japanese single, which came out on the 20th of June 2018. The single went straight to number one in the Oricon charts and Japan’s Billboard. This suggests that the future has good things in store for the group. Many hope they can break new international markets in the coming years.
