{{#invoke:Hatnote|hatnote}} {{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}}{{#invoke:Category handler|main}} {{#invoke:Album ratings|main}} $O$ is the debut album by South African rap-rave group Die Antwoord. The album was initially a widely circulated internet-only release, and made available to stream for free on the band's website prior to Interscope Records signing the band. The song "Wat Pomp?" had a music video released on June 6, 2009, followed by "Enter the Ninja" (a track with previous exposure as a viral video on YouTube and other video-hosting services), which received an official release on August 9, 2010. "Fish Paste" and "Beat Boy" have also been released as promotional singles. "Enter the Ninja" debuted at #37 in the UK Music Charts on September 19, 2010.
