Today, Stray Kids team up with global pop star Charlie Puth for an epic collaboration on their new single “Lose My Breath,” out now via JYP Entertainment / Imperial / Republic Records—listen HERE and watch the music video HERE.

Stray Kids’ new digital single includes two songs, the main track “Lose My Breath (Feat. Charlie Puth)” and an instrumental version. “Lose My Breath” was written and composed by the group’s in-house production team 3RACHA (Bang Chan, Changbin, and HAN) and Charlie Puth, as well as produced by Puth with Johnny Goldstein. The track describes the unfamiliar emotions one feels when they first encounter their love interest. It stands out with a repeating melody line in the chorus that fully captures the breathtaking feeling, as well as emotional guitar arpeggios that contrast with the intense lyrics and soft harmonies by Stray Kids and Puth.

Earlier this week, Stray Kids made history with their highly-anticipated debut at the 2024 Met Gala dressed by Tommy Hilfiger, topping numerous best-dressed lists including Vogue, GQ, Teen Vogue, WWD, Billboard, The Hollywood Reporter, and many more, with British GQ proclaiming, “At the Met Gala 2024, Stray Kids became the best-dressed band on the planet.”

Global sensations Stray Kids continue to step up their game with the new English track after conquering major global music awards and charts in 2023. The group have a busy year ahead of them, from dropping their latest summer comeback single to triple-headlining major music festivals around the world, including I-Days in Milan on July 12th, BST Hyde Park in London on July 14th, and Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 2nd.

In November 2023, Stray Kids won the “Top K-Pop Album” Award for ★★★★★ (5-STAR) at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards. This marked Stray Kids “the first fourth-generation K-pop boy band to win the award” and also “second only to BTS in terms of all K-pop boy groups”. This year, the group has continued to dominate global awards shows, taking home “Group of the Year” at the 2024 People’s Choice Awards in February and “K-Pop Album of the Year” at the 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards in April.

2023 was an incredible year for Stray Kids. Last fall, they returned to the top of the charts with their latest album ROCK-STAR at #1 on the Billboard 200—their fourth #1 consecutive debut on the Billboard 200. Stray Kids became “the only K-Pop act with multiple #1 albums in 2023” and the “first K-Pop act to debut their first four charting albums at #1 on the Billboard 200”. Their previous album ★★★★★ (5-STAR) moved over 5 million copies within a week and emerged as “the best-selling K-pop album in the United States in 2024.” During their sold-out Stray Kids 2nd World Tour “MANIAC” last spring, they packed the massive BMO Stadium in Los Angeles. Not to mention, TIME named the group among the “Next Generation Leaders”.

Since launching in 2017, Stray Kids have impressively amassed over 6 billion global Spotify streams, becoming one of only four K-Pop boy groups in Spotify history to reach this milestone. In 2021 alone, they generated the third-most streams of any K-Pop group on Spotify. They also hold the distinction of being JYP Entertainment’s first triple million-selling artist, moving 1.1 million units of NOEASY in under two weeks and with MAXIDENT selling over 3 million units. Their total sales in 2021 exceeded over 2.7 million. NOEASY notably also reached #1 in 40 territories on the iTunes Overall Albums Chart, while “Thunderous” soared to #1 in 52 territories on the iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart. The “Thunderous” video also trended at #1 worldwide on YouTube for four days. Over the past few years, Stray Kids have made history as “the first act to debut their first four charting albums [2022’s ODDINARY and MAXIDENT and 2023’s ROCK-STAR and ★★★★★ (5-STAR)] at #1 on Billboard 200 since Alicia Keys in 2007”, as well as “the only artist with multiple #1 albums on the Billboard 200 in both 2022 and 2023”—solidifying the group’s explosive transformation from underdogs to global dominators.
