Time recently posted an article titled 'The 10 Best Songs of the Year' on their official website and selected Stray Kids' song 'Back Door' as its No.8. 'The 10 Best Songs of the Year' featured famous musicians such as Cardi B and Christine and the Queens.
Time said, "It’s hard not to become enraptured by the song’s sheer bravado—both in its multi-layered production and the brassy energy of the eight performers," adding, "There are dramatic airhorns, slinky R&B breaks, jazz interludes, a trap chorus, electronic beats that would rile up festival crowds and others more likely to be found in underground clubs." In particular, the magazine praised the group's performance and value, saying, "Stray Kids are the latest act poised to break out in an increasingly globalized and free-wheeling pop industry."
Earlier, Stray Kids set a new record of 127,930 albums and 233,381 albums sold in a week of its release, respectively, through their first full-length album 'GO生' and repackaged album 'IN生' this year. The two albums sold 331,049 copies and 429,753 copies in terms of Gaon Chart's shipments, totaling more than 760,000 copies, as of November 24.
Meanwhile, Stray Kids released a Korean version of the song 'ALL IN' from their first Japanese mini-album as a digital single at noon on November 26.
