New music from rookie girl group NewJeans is already underway, according to the CEO of their label ADOR.

NewJeans just dropped their latest release, the single album ‘OMG’, on January 2nd. In an interview on January 21 with Cine21, ADOR CEO Min Hee-jin revealed that work on NewJeans’ next release is already underway. “You can expect it to be brand new,” Min said of the girl group’s new music, as translated by AllKpop. “It reminds me of the moment before the release of the music video for ‘Ditto’. My heart was about to burst.”

‘OMG’ was NewJeans’ first ever comeback and was led by the title track of the same name. This release was accompanied by a music video featuring actress Kim Joo-hun (who is best known internationally for her role in the K-drama) It’s okay not to be okay).

In addition to the title track, ‘OMG’ also featured a preview track, ‘Ditto’. That song became NewJeans’ first ever top 10 entry on the Billboard Global 200 charts and debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at number 96. The track also debuted at number 95 on the UK Official Singles Chart for the week of January 13-Jan. 19.

In a four-star review of ‘OMG’, NME‘s Rhian Daly wrote, “‘OMG’ is both a nonchalant shrug of the burden of quick success and a steady step forward for a group seemingly already on their way to becoming K-pop superstars. If NewJeans keeps going like this, there’s no stopping them.”
