In addition, Aespa will be performing with 'Supernova' on Mnet's 'M Countdown' on May 23rd and 30th, and MBC's 'Show!' on May 25th and June 1st. Following winning 5 trophies on 'Music Core' and SBS' 'Inkigayo' on the 26th, they won MBC M and MBC every1 'Show!' on June 5th with another title song 'Armageddon'. They recorded their first No. 1 on 'Champion' and showed their unstoppable progress by winning a total of 6 music shows so far with this album.

In addition, Espa's 'Supernova' not only broke its own highest ranking by ranking 6th on the US Billboard's global chart (excluding the US) and 17th on the Global 200 chart, but 'Armageddon' also ranked 29th and 55th, respectively, making it a double title song. Both songs succeeded in charting and are continuing to be a global success.

In addition, Espa is an integrated ranking system that combines the streaming index, digital album sales index, and recommendation index of five music platforms, including QQ Music, Kugou Music, Kuwo Music, Bodien Music, and JOOX, under Tencent Music, China's largest music platform. It was the first time since the chart ‘K-POP Chart’ was established that it ranked first for four consecutive weeks, demonstrating its strong popularity even in China.
