Popular K-pop trio JYJ, who has kept fans waiting patiently for nearly three years, has returned with its newest album “Just Us” on Tuesday.

JYJ’s “Just Us” is only the second full album for the trio following its 2011 “In Heaven” studio album.

The new album’s lead single “Back Seat” topped all nine major online real-time music singles charts ― Naver Music, MelOn, Daum, Mnet, Soribada, Bugs, Genie, Olleh and Cyworld Music ― within hours of its release.

The group’s new album features 13 tracks including the single “Valentine,” which was cowritten and coproduced by popular U.S. singer Chris Brown along with Grammy-nominated producer J. Lonny Bereal and Charles Bereal.

JYJ is slated to hold a solo concert on Aug. 9 at Jamsil Sports Complex in Seoul before embarking on its Asia tour of Hong Kong, China, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand.
