JYP Entertainment’s new global group VCHA officially debuts with “Girls of the Year”.
VCHA released their debut single “Girls of the Year” and the title song of the same name at 2 PM (KST) on January 26th, announcing the appearance of the world-wide rookie that everyone has been waiting for. The first single contains a total of two songs, including the title song “Girls of the Year” and “XO Call Me”.
As the song’s title suggests, the official debut song “Girls of the Year” contains VCHA’s precious dream, bold ambition, and lofty goal of ‘becoming the girls who represent this year’.
Marcus Andersson, who worked with LE SSERAFIM, Lauren Aquilina, who created hit songs by working with international girl group Little Mix, American pop star Demi Lovato, and IVE, and leading writers embroidered the credits, including Chloe Latimer, who participated in the songs of various K-pop artists such as TWICE, IU, and Oh My Girl.
The music video for the new song is cross-edited with scenes of the six members gathering in a practice room, working together, and immersing themselves in choreography practice to achieve their dreams, as well as scenes of them becoming world-famous stars, performing on a wide stage, and becoming the main characters of fashion magazines. It shows VCHA’s enthusiasm and passion for turning ideals into reality, raising expectations for the bright future they will create.
In particular, the VCHA will be held at Foro Sol in Mexico City, Mexico on February 2nd, on the 3rd, at Allianz Parque, Sao Paulo, Brazil on the 6th and 7th, and at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, USA on March 16th. They will appear on the opening stage of a concert to increase global response.
They were created through the mega-project “A2K”, a collaboration between JYP, a representative K-pop agency, and Republic Records, the No. 1 label in the United States selected by Billboard under Universal Music Group. The group name was personally named by JYP’s representative producer Park Jin-young with the meaning of ‘VCHA will shine light on the fans and the world.’
Previously, ahead of the release of the official debut single, VCHA released the pre-debut single “SeVit (NEW LIGHT)” and the title song “Y.O.Universe” on September 22, 2023 and celebrated the grand finale of “A2K”. The day after its release, the music video for “Y.O.Universe” entered the rankings in 33 overseas regions, including 1st in YouTube Trending Worldwide, 5th in the US, 7th in Brazil, and 8th in Canada. The single “Ready for the World”, released on December 1, exceeded 200,000 streams on the global music streaming platform Spotify within five days of its release.
Recently, he was included in Grammy.com’s “25 Artists To Watch In 2024” and US magazine NYLON’s “22 Most Anticipated Albums of 2024” with his first single “Girls of the Year”. It was selected and demonstrated strong global attention. JYP’s new girl group VCHA announces its official start as a next-generation global superstar with its official debut single ‘Girls of the Year’ and accelerates its activities.
