Girl group Kep1er shone global popularity by being the only Korean artist on the “Shazam: 2023 Trend” playlist selected by Apple Music and Shazam.
According to the playlist released by Apple Music and music discovery app Shazam on the 5th, Kepler’s debut song “WADADA” (Choi Yu-jin, Xiaoting, Masiro Kim Chae-hyun, Kim Da-yeon, Hikaru, Huening Bahie, Seo Young-eun, and Kang Ye-seo) was selected as the 50 songs to shine this year.
Apple Music analyzes Shazam data every year to select global artists of various genres that are expected to grow significantly throughout the year, and releases a playlist of “Shazam: Trend” that includes a total of 50 artists.
Kepler is the only Korean artist to be selected on the “Shazam: 2023 Trend” playlist with the title song “WADA DA” of his debut album “FIRST IMPACT” released in January 2022, proving his unabated global popularity.
Earlier, Kepler reached the top of various global music platform charts, including iTunes, Spotify, Billboard chart in the U.S., and Oricon chart in Japan, shortly after its release with “WA DA DA”, and left an unusual record of more than 100 million views of music videos within three months of its debut. In addition, in Japan, the cumulative number of plays in the region exceeded 100 million times and received “Platinum” certification (as of October 2022).
“Thank you so much for your interest and love of Kepler and his music,” Plough said. “I will try to become a Kepler who continues to grow,” he said.
