Kris and Luhan are obviously seen more than Tao, but Tao has easily released the best music of the trio so far thus I count them all as killing it in one way or another.

It’s actually pretty crazy to see the numbers laid out like this. I figured they were popular but the statistical reality was actually above the hype, which is a rare thing.
