According to the list of winners of the '35th Japan Gold Disc Awards' announced by the Japan Record Association on March 15, TXT (Soobin, Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Taehyun and Huening Kai) won the 'New Artist of the Year' and 'Best 3 New Artist' categories. This is the first time TXT has won an award at the 'Japan Gold Disc Awards' ceremony, which awards singers and works which have contributed to the development of the music industry throughout the year.
TXT officially debuted in Japan with their single 'MAGIC HOUR' in January 2020. TXT, who topped the Oricon Daily Singles Chart and Weekly Singles Chart with the album at that time, broke their own record with the first full-length album released in January this year. The album topped the Oricon Daily Album Chart and topped the weekly chart for 7 consecutive days.
In addition, TXT achieved a success with 'STILL DREAMING' being at #173 on the U.S. Billboard main album chart 'Billboard 200'. This is their third entry into 'Billboard 200' after the debut album 'The Dream Chapter: STAR' released in March 2019 and 'minisode1: Blue Hour' released in October last year. In particular, entering the U.S. Billboard main album chart with a Japanese album is meaningful because TXT is the second group to do this after BTS.
TXT said, "We sincerely thank the fan club MOA for their infinite love which helped us win the 'Japan Gold Disc Awards'. It's a shame that we can't meet now because of the pandemic, but we'll do our best in the future, waiting for the day we'll meet again soon. We will work harder to repay your love and support."
Meanwhile, TXT is continuing to be a global trend, showing strong presence in South Korea and abroad, being highlighted by leading foreign media outlets such as Forbes and Teen Vogue.
