SuperM Slays First Televised “Jopping” Performance On ‘Ellen’
K-Pop all-star group SuperM pulled out all the stops to mark their official debut on the scene. The septet, comprised of Taemin from SHINee, EXO’s Baekhyun and Kai, NCT 127’s Taeyong and Mark, and Ten and Lucas of Chinese band WayV, dropped their first mini-album Friday. And it’s been quickly racking up streams on services like Spotify. All five songs on the project (there’s also two instrumentals) already surpassed a million streams on the platform. And, of course, the song that is performing best is focus track “Jopping.”
The party-starting banger amassed more than 4 million streams. Meanwhile, the accompanying video (a jaw-dropping blockbuster lush with incredible dance routines and equally impressive staging) has been viewed more than 22 million times. At the rate things are going, the song is bound to make an appearance on next week’s Billboard Hot 100. And the group all but guaranteed a strong showing by nailing their first televised performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Delivering a tightly choreographed routine and strong vocals, they understandably left the audience in awe.
That’s not all. SuperM (referred to as the Avengers of K-Pop) taught Ellen how to jop (it’s a combination of jumping and popping) in a cute sit-down segment. They also discussed fan names and made a generous donation to The Ellen Fund. Watch that here and check out footage from their performance below.
