Recognized as a “Radio Rising Star”by hip-hop magazine ‘The Source’, they continue to expand their global presence, receiving coverage from numerous international media outlets.

Despite being a newcomer to the American music market, 82MAJOR is already making waves.

These accomplishments are highly uncommon for a new K-pop idol group and bode well for their future success.

The following are comments from internet users about 82MAJOR’s most recent accomplishment:

  • I believe they will also gain popularity. After viewing their music video, I was captivated by their sensational performance and even mistook them for models. I ended up rewatching it multiple times.
  • I watched the music video and it was really really trendy and the members’ styling felt like street models. It’s likely that they will become the next small company miracle
  • The music video and style are really cool. It’s the trendiest thing I’ve come across lately.
  • Wah, will FIFTY FIFTY’s level of virality happen again, I hope so
  • This group’s songs are good, but their stages are next-level as well
