TWICE eyes global domination with Japanese subunit and upcoming World Tour
Known as the "Nation's Girl Group," TWICE have enjoyed immense popularity in Korea since their debut. However, recent years have also seen a spike in their global popularity.
The talented group's latest album, Between 1&2, created history on global music charts and set the band on a record-breaking spree.
With its release, the group recorded its biggest U.S. opening week sales, as it sold a total of 100,000 copies.
Additionally, they became the first female K-pop artist to land two albums in the top three of the Billboard 200. Their latest album also earned the distinction of being the first K-Pop Girl Group Album of 2022 to spend six weeks on the same chart.
The album debuted at No.1 position on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart, the Top Current Album Sales chart and the World Albums chart, making it one of their most successful comebacks yet. Additionally, the music video for the title track, Talk That Talk, also surpassed 100 million views within two months of its release.
To capitalize on this surge in popularity, JYP Entertainment recently announced that nonet will be making a comeback in early 2023 followed by the debut of its first subunit in Japan, which is the second largest music market in the world.
The agency is also reportedly preparing a "large-scale” world tour for the nine-member group in 2023, further details of which will soon be revealed.
