Hours after the comeback, the boys immediately made their presence known on various iTunes charts worldwide. The title track made its way to the top 10 on the iTunes Top K-Pop Songs charts in 10 countries, such as Singapore, United Kingdom, and the United States.

Moreover, the song ranked third in Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia’s charts; second in Austria, Norway, and Cambodia; and topped the charts in Nicaragua. Overall, their newest comeback has set a new personal record for the group in terms of chart performance.

Additionally, the music video for “Without You” also raked in an impressive number of views upon its premiere. Within three days, the music video garnered over 6 million views—a number that continues to grow as of writing.

“Without You” shows the group preparing a darker and even more intense concept to show to their fans. The song tells the story of a chaotic person who hopes to look for an answer while wandering in endless darkness, highlighting loss as the main emotion.

As of writing, the group had performed the song in Show! Music Core, M Countdown, and Music Bank.

Recently, Daeyeol, Jangjun, Y, TAG, Seungmin, Jaehyun, Jibeom, Donghyun, Bomin, and Joochan took the stage at Inkigayo to promote “Without You.” Their comeback stages truly raised their fans’ expectations, and attracted the attention of the K-Pop scene.
