The 2023 MTV VMA has announced additional nominees on September 1st.
According to the official website, NewJeans is a nominee in the ‘Group of the Year’ category. This nomination marks a significant achievement for NewJeans, as they have gained global recognition just one year after their debut.
NewJeans recently made waves in the global music scene with their second mini-album, ‘Get Up,’ achieving the fastest ascent to the top of Billboard 200 among all K-pop groups after their debut.
