[MAMA Highlights] Why Being ‘Sexy, Free & Single’ was Awesome for Super Junior in 2012

Posted by Suraya Hani at 5:29 PM
Super Junior kept itself quite busy in 2012 with several members challenging themselves to try out the acting and variety worlds, but the group always remembered to return to its first calling as singers.

In 2012, Super Junior gave birth to Sexy, Free & Single, telling the music world that being completely single is completely fine.

With its catchy beats and memorable lyrics, Sexy, Free & Single received much love from its listeners. As soon as the album came out, it started climbing up the iTunes charts all around the world, from France to Mexico, proving their popularity is not limited to just Korea - a good reason why Super Junior won Best Global Group - Male.

The album also swept through the Korean album charts, blowing away all competition, as well as Taiwan’s KKBOX’s Korean Music TOP 100 chart, allowing Super Junior to continue reigning over the charts for 110 consecutive weeks.

The album ranked high on Japan’s Oricon Chart, even being certified Gold, selling well over 100,000 copies – a feat that is hard to come by in the current music market.

In addition to all of the success in album sales, after making its Mnet M Countdown comeback on July 5, Super Junior didn’t take too long to make its newest hit song a triple crown winner, which the group celebrated on July 28 by ripping off Leeteuk’s shirt.

Not only was the main track worthy of being added to everyone′s summer playlist, the album was also filled with other songs worth listening to. One of these songs was From U, which was spotlighted as a song that the Super Junior members made specifically for its ELF fanclub.

The popularity of Sexy, Free & Single continued with its music video gaining more than a million views just 11 hours after its release. The music video now has over 17 million views and is still going strong.

The same kind of success was brought on the group, when it released the repackaged album Spy. The group not only introduced its follow-up song but also proved that they were challenging themselves musically by composing and penning the lyrics to several of the songs included in the album.

And finally, on November 30 in Hong Kong, at the Mnet Asian Music Awards, Super Junior won Album of the Year, wrapping up the album′s success with a bang.
