Seventeen’s ‘Choice’ for Latest Mini-Album? ‘We Want to Top the Billboard Charts’

Seventeen have lofty ambitions for their latest mini-album, Your Choice.

“The goal is to be on Billboard’s charts. We want to top the Billboard charts,” Seungkwan said Friday during a press conference about the project streamed from the Intercontinental hotel in Seoul, South Korea.

The band also demonstrated the boisterous reaction they would have if they do hit No. 1.

Seventeen typically releases new music on a Monday, but with Your Choice, they’re released on a Friday. There’s a reason for that. They’re “targeting audiences in the U.S. and the Americas as well. And I think we’ll have more opportunities to perform on global shows,” Seungkwan said.

“It’d be really nice to place our name on the main Billboard charts,” S.Coups added. “That would be really great and we’d get energized.”

As part of their U.S. invasion, they’re performing Wednesday on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and other shows yet to be revealed.

Your Choice is the group’s eighth EP, and it comes eight months after their last, October 2020’s Semicolon.

Now all eyes are on them to see if they will become quadruple-million sellers, said press conference moderator Park Sun Young. “Love” is the overarching theme of the record, and the message behind Your Choice, Sun Young said, is that “Your Choice is more important than mine.”

During the press conference, the boy band debuted the music video for lead track “Ready to Love” (watch below). The music video sees Seventeen’s band members strolling the streets of a summery, hyper-colored urban landscape with messages of love splashed around.

“It’s about feeling love for a friend,” said DK. And “being ready to courageously confess” to that love.

This year, we’ll be working with the theme of “love,” Woozi added. “We’ll be showing a much more mature expression of love. “

Nogizaka46 Shoots to No. 1 on Japan Hot 100 With Over 700K CDs Sold

Nogizaka46’s “Gomenne Fingers Crossed” soars to No. 1 on the latest Billboard Japan Hot 100, dated June 7 to 13, selling 704,346 CDs in its first week.

Nogizaka46 Shoots to No. 1 on Japan Hot 100 With Over 700K CDs Sold

Nogizaka46’s “Gomenne Fingers Crossed” soars to No. 1 on the latest Billboard Japan Hot 100, dated June 7 to 13, selling 704,346 CDs in its first week. The popular girl group’s new single sold more copies than its predecessor, “Boku Ha Boku Wo Suki Ni Naru” (678,684 copies), to lead sales and look-ups, while also coming in at No. 6 for radio airplay, No. 15 for downloads, No. 19 for Twitter mentions, and No. 83 for video views.

After leading the tally for two straight weeks, BTS’ “Butter” slips to No. 2, but continues to hold the top spots for streaming, video and Twitter. While the figures are tapering off — streams are down from last week’s 18,729,013 to 16,133,460, video views are also down from 11,348,160 to 7,309,315 views — the numbers themselves are still far greater than the tracks at No. 2 and beyond. “Butter” has logged its third week atop the Billboard Hot 100, and continues to maintain enough momentum to return to No. 1 in Japan.

Kenshi Yonezu’s “Pale Blue” rules downloads and radio this week, while also performing well in streaming (No. 2), video (No. 2) and Twitter (No. 7). The track falls 2-3, but with the CD going on sale June 16, whether or not it can overtake BTS’ “Butter” to rise to No. 1 is something to keep an eye on next week.

The Billboard Japan Hot 100 combines physical and digital sales, audio streams, radio airplay, Twitter mentions, YouTube and GYAO! video views, Gracenote look-ups and karaoke data.
