Korean girl group Girls’ Generation has made a glorious return to the charts with their fourth album.

“I Got a Boy” topped various local music charts just hours after its release on Tuesday. It is their first album in 14 months after the release of “The Boys.”

Its title track “I Got a Boy” is an electronic dance number with a mix of various genres like pop, retro and urban. The dance moves were choreographed by world-famous artists such as NappyTabs, Rino Nakasone and Jillian Meyers.

Other tracks including “Dancing Queen,” “Baby Maybe,” and “Express 999” also entered the top 10 on domestic charts. “Baby Maybe” is drawing special attention as it is composed by British pop star Pixie Lott and co-written by the group’s Sooyoung, Yuri and Seohyun. “Dancing Queen” is a remake of Welsh singer Duffy’s “Mercy.”

The title track also topped the Japanese iTunes chart as of Wednesday and placed 21st on the American iTunes chart.

The nine members of the girl group are leading K-pop stars belonging to SM Entertainment’s stable that also includes Super Junior, SHINEE and f(x).
