Girl group TWICE set its own best record by ranking sixth on the Billboard main album chart "Billboard 200" in the U.S. with its new album. Billboard reported on the 20th that TWICE's 10th mini album "Taste of Love" ranked sixth on the Billboard 200 this week.
In December last year, she jumped 66 notches from 72nd place, which was recorded with her second full-length album "Eyes Wide Open," and settled in the "Top 10."
TWICE is the second K-pop girl group to make the top 10 on the chart after BLACKPINK.
Billboard 200 is a chart that ranks the most popular albums in the U.S. by combining traditional album sales, SEA, which translates the number of streams into album sales, and TEA, which translates digital music downloads into album sales.
According to Billboard, "Taste of Love," which was released on the 11th, has sold 46,000 copies in a week.
TWICE, which is very popular in Korea and Japan, signed a partnership with Republic Records, a label under Universal Music Group, in February last year and started targeting the U.S. market.
As a result, in June of the same year, his 9th mini album "More & More" entered the Billboard 200 at number 200, making it the first time since his debut.
In December, the "Eyes Wide Open" rose more than 100 notches to 72nd place, showing clear growth.
The title track "Alcohol-Free" performance was also shown for the first time on the U.S. flagship talk show "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."
Shortly after its release, the song reached number 65 on the Spotify Global Top 200 chart, the world's largest music streaming platform.
The music video surpassed 100 million views on YouTube at 7:30 p.m. the previous day.
About an hour after it was released, it shortened the previous "I Can't Stop Me" record by about 10 hours, becoming its music video with 100 million views in the shortest period of time.
