Girl group aespa proved themselves to be worthy of being dubbed as one of the leaders of the fourth generation of K-pop as they break record after record. The girl group made history with the release of their second mini album, Girls, last July 8.

Prior to its release, aespa’s entertainment agency, SM Entertainment, announced on all of their social media platforms that the girl group managed to get 1,610,517 pre-orders for their latest album.

By achieving these high-sales numbers, aespa managed to beat the previous record of 1,028,888 set by girl group BLACKPINK with their album, The Album, released in 2020. They are now officially the record holder of having the highest number of pre-stock orders by a girl group.
