ASTRO has won their second music show trophy for “ONE“! On the April 14 episode of “Show Champion,” the candidates for first place were WINNER‘s Kang Seung Yoon‘s “IYAH,” EXO‘s Baekhyun‘s “Bambi,” ASTRO’s “ONE,” IU‘s “LILAC,” and Red Velvet‘s Wendy’s “Like Water.”
Last week, ASTRO made their return on April 5 with their second full-length album “All Yours,” featuring the title track “ONE.” According to Hanteo Chart, the album sold over 135,075 copies on April 6 alone, managing to break ASTRO’s previous first-week sales record of 76,376 (set by their 2019 mini album “Blue Flame“) within just its first day of sales.
ASTRO’s “All Yours” sold an impressive total of 281,952 copies
On April 13, Hanteo Chart went on to report that in the first week of its release (April 6 to April 12), “All Yours” sold an impressive total of 281,952 copies, nearly quadrupling ASTRO’s personal record. Title track ‘ONE’ sounds absolutely amazing. Paired with a music video that provides a comeback that is powerful.
“All Yours” achieved the second-highest first-week sales of any album released by a male group in 2021
Notably, “All Yours” achieved the second-highest first-week sales of any album released by a male group in 2021 according to Hanteo Chart calculations, bested only by ATEEZ’s “ZERO : FEVER Part.2” thus far. It also achieved the fourth-highest first-week sales of any album released this year so far, following EXO‘s Baekhyun‘s “Bambi,” BLACKPINK‘s Rosé’s “R,” and ATEEZ’s “ZERO : FEVER Part.2.”
All Yours: First Track from the Album
‘Dear my Universe’ is the first track on the album. It has a good beat and some good vibes. This song is definately upbeat but sounds very chilled at the same time.
All Yours: Second Track from the Album
‘Butterfly Effect’ is the second track on the album. Another upbeat sounding song. It has a good interchange from the first verse, to the pre-chorus, before the beat drops into a catchy chorus section.
All Yours: Third Track from the Album
ONE is the third track on the album. It is also the title track to the album. We think it has an amazing beat to it. In addition to this, we love the way the song starts with the title of the track being spoken to the beat at the beginning, and then precedes into the verse. We also absolutely adore the drum section as the pre-chorus transitions into the chorus.
All Yours: Fourth Track from the Album
The fourth track on the album is ‘Someone Else’. By this point we were obviousy singing along. ‘Someone Else’ has is certainly a catchy tune. We especially love the rap sections of the song in addition to Sanha’s vocals accross this song.

When was the Astro’s Last Comeback?
Astro’s last comeback was in May of 2020 with ‘Knock’, following which, members Moonbin and Sanha debuted in their sub-unit with ‘Bad Idea‘, both of which proved to be incredible hits. Cha Eun Woo also appeared in the highly successful webtoon adaptation of ‘True Beauty‘ as Suho alongside Moon Ga Young’s Joo Kyung and Hwang In Yeop’s Seojun and is currently in talks to join Kim Nam Gil and Seo Ye Ji for the drama ‘Island’. It has thus been quite a busy year so far and ASTRO is ready to take it another step further with their comeback.
When did ASTRO make their DEBUT?
Astro, who debuted in 2016, is composed of Cha Eun Woo, Moon Bin, Jin-Jin, MJ, Rocky and Sanha. The K-pop group released their first full-length album “All Night” in 2019, and made their comeback with “Knock” in May last year. ASTRO debuted in 2016 with their single Hide & Seek from their debut Extended Play, Spring Up. They were subsequently named by Billboard as one of the best new K-pop groups of 2016.
ASTRO’s upcoming album will be the boyband’s first release as a full group since May 2020, when they dropped their ninth mini-album ‘Gateway’. The mini-album featured the title track ‘Knock’, which became the group’s highest-charting song on the Gaon Digital Chart. Over their five-year-long career, the group have released nine mini-albums and one full-length record, as well as a handful of singles.
