Recently, EXO was honorably named to be the only Kpop representative in Top 50 most popular bands of the last 10 years.
A few days ago, the newspaper 24/7 Wall St., LLC announced the list of Top 50 most popular bands during the last 10 years, this list was based on some criteria such as: popularity on Spotify, number of first ranks on Billboard weekly chart. Among 50 bands, EXO stood out at the 10th rank, making Korean fans “tremendously” proud.
More information about this list, 24/7 Wall St., LLC is a Delaware corporation. The company’s articles are republished by many of the largest news sites and portals, including MSN Money, Yahoo! Finance, MarketWatch, Time.com, USAToday, and The Huffington Post. The company publishes over 30 articles per day and has readers throughout North America, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. Therefore, this is an absolutely trustworthy newspaper.
With a quick glance at the names in top 50, it is easily seen that most of the bands are familiar US&UK bands. The top 3 positions belong to Linkin Park, Coldplay and Maroon 5 respectively, which are worldwide well-known bands, as they already have had many years in music career.
EXO is like an outstanding highlight in this list. Being an Asian group, not playing music instruments or composing their own songs, EXO still attracts people, making it difficult for them to take their eyes off wonderful performances. Each EXO’s song is performed with unique and powerful choreography, so that it is incredibly fascinating and amazing. Maybe this is the reason why the 6-year-old Korean group is named in this prestigious list.
This is not the first time EXO achieves spectacular universal success. In the last February, this group was also the only Kpop name to be mentioned in a chart of Weibo – one of the biggest social media in China. Previously, EXO’s successes were featured in The Guinness World Records 2018 Edition with the title “The group with most Daesang awards”. It can be said that EXO’s successes are now properly rewarding the members for their talents and endless efforts.
Idols’ successes are also the fans’ joy and happiness, which can’t be expressed by any word. All of them are proud of these achievements but they don’t rest on their laurels for too long. Therefore, in the future, it is certain that EXO will go further in music career.
