GOT7, "Look"

The sophisticated house-R&B sound of "Look" is breaking the band to new chart territory.

All eyes are on GOT7 with their new album release as the band returns to the upper echelons of the World and Heatseekers Album charts as well while making their first appearance on the YouTube Songs tally.

Debuting at No. 2 on Billboard's World Albums chart, Eyes on You is GOT7's 10th entry on the ranking to date and seventh release entry to chart in the top two slots. The EP sold 2,000 traditional album units in the week ending March 15, according to Nielsen Music, after its March 12 release. While it marks one of GOT7's best first sales week in America -- including tying their highest spot on Top Album Sales as well as their first appearance on the Digital Albums chart at No. 21 -- their Flight Log: Arrival more recently debuted with 3,000 traditional album units.

Starting at No. 2, Eyes on You is GOT7's seventh entry on the Heatseekers Albums chart -- a tally that sees far fewer K-pop albums. This ties GOT7's best entry that came via their Flight Log: Departure release when it also peaked at No. 2.

Meanwhile, "Look," the house and R&B–inspired lead single from Eyes on You, leads GOT7 to make their first appearance on the YouTube chart after it debuts at No. 21 this week. This marks the highest-charting K-pop song of 2018 and makes the boy band just the 16th Korean-pop artist to appear on the chart. At press time, "Look" has amassed more than 22 million YouTube views.

As some of their best and highest-charting releases prove, GOT7 truly shines in a tightly packed collection of R&B tracks with Eyes On You marking some of their smoothest, dreamiest work yet. The whooshing synthesizers and quick-paced trap production on "Look" imitates the excitement of exploring a new relationship, "One And Only You" see the guys trading off affectionate lines with Hyolyn -- in a cool move too rarely seen where a boy band features a fellow idol singer -- while dissonant vocal samples and slow-groove productions make "The Reason" and "Hesitate" sparkle. The guys end the record with the falsetto-driven power ballad "Thank You" that doubles a message of gratitude to fans.

GOT7 also see two entries on the World Digital Song Sales chart as "Look" debuts at No. 3 while "One and Only You" -- which was released earlier as a buzz track -- falls to No. 16, from last week's No. 15, after debuting at No. 6. To date, GOT7's highest entry comes via "Fly" and "Hard Carry," which both hit No. 2 in 2015. Watch GOT7 bring "Look" to life in a live performance below:
