Girl group NewJeans will perform at the 2024 Billboard Women in Music Awards on May 6, becoming the second K-pop female act to receive an award and perform for the awards ceremony after Twice.

NewJeans has been named as the Group of the Year at the Billboard’s annual celebration of iconic women in the music industry around the world, after landing its first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart last year with “Get Up” (2023).

“Get Up” became the fifth best-selling album in the United States last year, the highest for a K-pop girl group and the highest female act ever since Taylor Swift’s iconic “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” (2023).

The quintet also landed five tracks — “OMG” (2023), “Ditto” (2022), “Super Shy” (2023), “ETA” (2023) and “Cool With You” (2023) — on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

NewJeans performed at the Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs) last year, becoming the first K-pop girl group to do so.
