NU'EST's unit group, NU'EST W, are proving that their post-Produce 101 popularity isn't going anywhere any time soon.
The group's new digital single "If You" was nominated for first place on MBC's Music Core on Saturday, despite the fact that it has no music video or live promotions to support it.
The song did lose to EXO's mega-hit "Ko Ko Bop," but even to come second to a group like EXO is hugely impressive for a song that isn't even being promoted.
On top of that, "If You" recently debuted at No. 2 on the Gaon digital chart (again, just behind EXO)! This is the highest-charting single that NU'EST has ever had by a large margin, with their sleeper hit "Hello" being the next best after peaking at No. 20.
To thank fans for their success, the boys are currently preparing fan meetings in Korea for August 26 and 27.
