The band’s victory also drew congratulations from members of A’TIN, SB19’s global fandom. โ€œWe A’TIN, fans of SB19, congratulate SKZ and STAYs. It was fair and healthy competition in the championship round. Thank you Billboard for giving us the opportunity to be a part of #BBFanArmy2022,” one user commented on Billboard’s story on Twitter, prompting a certain Stray Kids fan to reveal that the Army Face Off fan was her actually introduced to the music of SB19.

Throughout the many rounds of competition, Stray Kids managed to outperform the likes of Ariana Grande’s Arianators and Cardi B’s Bardi Gang to Beyoncรฉ’s BeyHive and the BTS ARMY.

Earlier this year, the JYP-signed K-pop act released its sixth Korean-language EP, Strange, which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and had its largest first-week sales of the year up to that point. They also just wrapped up their North American headlining tour in support of the mini-album with a show at Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena last Thursday (July 14).
