“Face the Sun,” the fourth studio album of boy band Seventeen, earned the title of one of the “Albums Of The Year” as designated by the American music channel MTV.

“Rather than continuing to live comfortably in the shade, the K-pop superstars chose to bask in the light and combat their anxieties head-on,” MTV wrote in an article “Albums Of The Year: Seventeen Find Their Light on ‘Face The Sun.’”

“With the release of their fourth studio album, ‘Face the Sun,’ a nine-track piece of pop exploration, they did just that, and in turn, created their most sonically settled, emotionally confident record yet.

“They have not only faced the sun but have truly become it. How lucky we are to live in their light,” the article read.

As MTV wraps up this year’s music scene, it is announcing one of the “Albums Of The Year” each day this week. The aforementioned albums were “Renaissance” by Beyoncé and “Un Verano Sin Ti” by Bad Bunny. MTV plans to release a total of five “Albums Of The Year” titles.

“Hot,” the lead track of “Face the Sun” also ranked No. 38 in “The 100 Best Songs of 2022” by Rolling Stone.
