New Year 2023: NewJeans

When NewJeans debuted last year, the response was truly phenomenal. The group’s name aptly summarises their identity, which centres around imbuing newness in the familiar. And their music reflects this by fusing retro and contemporary elements. We look forward to seeing and hearing how NewJeans pave their way to becoming timeless icons in 2023, just like a classic pair of denim. Celebrating the new year, the five members of NewJeans shared songs that brighten up their day. Here are their personal picks, along what they had to say about each track.
