They aren’t precisely thrilled with it, both.
When aespa first debuted in late 2020, they have been releasing singles on a reasonably common foundation, with their first mini-album, Savage, dropping a few yr into their profession.
Over the final yr or so, nevertheless, their releases appeared to have slowed down fairly a bit, with their solely main comeback in 2022 being the release of the mini-album Girls in July.
In reality, now simply over two years since they first debuted, aespa has fewer songs than most artists at their age, which is uncommon for an SM Entertainment group. Excluding collaboration singles, the group has launched simply 15 songs.
In comparability to different teams that debuted across the identical time, akin to Weeekly with round 23 songs and ENHYPEN with over 30 (together with Japanese tracks), it appears much more odd that aespa falls to date behind by way of variety of releases.
When you add collaboration tracks, nevertheless, issues are a bit of totally different.
In reality, with the announcement of GOT the Beat, SM Entertainment’s multi-girl group energy unit that features aespa’s Winter and Karina, planning to release a mini-album with six tracks in January, aespa will formally have extra collaboration songs than songs of their very own.

So with the additional six songs on GOT the Beat’s upcoming album, aespa could have 16 collaboration songs and 15 songs of their very own, for a complete of 31 tracks.
While it’s good that the members of aespa are getting the chance to collaborate with their fellow SM Entertainment artists which were within the trade for longer than they’ve, some followers aren’t too glad in regards to the realization of what their present discography appears like.
The dialog is occurring on a number of social media platforms, with opinions fairly unanimous general.
I believe they need to prioritize aespa’s comeback, promotion and the tour. After that they will have that collaboration. aespa want that to strengthen their fan base. MY actually is preventing with one another and a few lose their curiosity @SMTOWNGLOBAL
