MUMBAI: K-Pop boy band, CRAVITY, are continuing to make a name for themselves as 4th generation K-Pop idols, with the release of their first full-length album, Part 1 [The Awakening: Written In The Stars]. Out today, Forbes anticipated this release with an article stating; "The [upcoming] project will possibly bring the band back to the top of the Gaon Albums chart, as they have shown that right out of the gate, they are ones to watch." Accompanying the album is a music video for their title track “Gas Pedal.” Rapper Allen states; ““Gas Pedal” expresses our relentless drive for more. Its lyrics invite listeners to come along with us on this journey as we “climb towards the peak following the stars.” Its heavy bass, impactful drums arrangements and addictive riff enhances the experience even more by making listeners feel immersed in this race to the top while whipping a “V12 engine ready to zoom.””

Coming off of three previous releases since debuting, this full-length album is meant to showcase the trajectory of their artistic strengths in performance and songwriting as they mature, going beyond that of their “super rookie” title. With each body of work CRAVITY releases, they've portrayed their journey to overcoming hardships and pain while uniting together as one in the “new world” they’ve created. This is also a depiction of how the boys understand and accept the differences amongst themselves while finding their fate together as a group. Throughout [The Awakening: Written In The Stars], the theme of the “stars” implies the strong bond between the members and their fans that they can rely on during difficult times.

Consisting of eight tracks, Part 1 [The Awakening: Written In The Stars], transcends genres as you dive headfirst into the tracklist. Ranging from addictive guitar sounds, groovy beats, heavy bass, upbeat trap, electro-pop and more; there’s a track for every listener. Rappers of the group, Serim and Allen, contributed to writing the raps for title track “Gas Pedal”; a song that expresses the growth of CRAVITY since their debut, through the metaphor of an "accelerator pedal." “Divin,” a feel good track, expresses the bliss of escaping the daily grind from everyday life on a hot summer day. While “VENI VIDI VICI” hits you with guitar riffs; with lyrics reflecting CRAVITY’s strong determination, similar to the title of the song: "I came, I saw, I lived."

Since their debut on April 14th 2020, CRAVITY have marked their relentless movement, sweeping rookie of the year awards at various music awards ceremonies in Korea. Even with only two albums under their belt at the time, their achievements were more than enough to show their presence in the K-Pop scene. CRAVITY received the name “Super Rookie”, due to the success of their debut album, which hit No. 1 on U.S. @iTunes Top K-Pop Albums chart, making them the first #Kpop rookie group to debut in 2020 to earn this achievement. Additionally, the group made a splash on social media shortly after their first album, debuting at No. 12 on Billboard's Social 50 chart; making them the fifth-fastest South Korean group to enter Social 50.
