The album’s title track “Valkyrie” is noted to have performed well on several iTunes Top K-Pop Songs charts, counting seven different countries around the world where it charted within the top 10. Additionally, the song also occupied the number one spot in Germany’s chart.

“Valkyrie” is a trendy dance song with hip hop elements and heavy guitar riff sounds, which leaves listeners playing it again and again. Besides their music, the members of ONEUS had also been attracting attention with their charming visuals and powerful stage presences.

The latter, plus their ability to deliver stable live performances, were showcased during their debut stages on Mnet’s music program M Countdown, KBS’ Music Bank, and MBC’s The Show. Following their debut performances where they showed their intense appeal, ONEUS became a hot topic in various online communities, as well as real-time searches on portal sites.
