Singing about environmental challenges, Dreamcatcher surpassed TWICE among girl groups with the most No.1 on iTunes album chart

They are a rare K-pop group that addresses environmental issues through their music.

On April 12, Dreamcatcher made a comeback with the title track MAISON included in the second full album “Apocalypse: Save us”. This is Dreamcatcher‘s first comeback in 2022, 9 months after the release of the special summer album “Summer Holiday” in 2021.

Through the song MAISON produced by Ollounder and LEEZ, Dreamcatcher calls for action to protect the earth from global warming. The song carries a critical message toward people who callously destroy the environment with inappropriate behaviors. This is a rare K-pop album that addresses this topical and urgent issue.

Dreamcatcher‘s “Apocalypse: Save us” debuted at #1 on the US iTunes album chart, becoming the third album in 2022 to achieve this after DICE by SHINee’s Onew and Stray KidsODDINARY.

Dreamcatcher also became the 5th K-pop girl group with an album topping the US iTunes album chart after BLACKPINK, TWICE, Red Velvet, and LOONA. This is a remarkable achievement, especially for a non-Big3 group.
