K-Pop's Twice Rack Up Two No. 1s On The Charts
The K-pop surge continues as the nine young ladies of Twice enjoy No. 1 status atop Billboard's World Digital Song Sales for their single "Likey" as well as No. 1 on the World Albums chart for Twicetagram. Although this double chart status has been accomplished by BTS three times, Twice is the first female K-pop band to accomplish this feat.
"Likey" plays with different ideas about trying to look one's best while being true to oneself. The diversity and independence of the women's personalities is featured — a staple for K-pop boy bands — while much of their dancing is exceptional.
Like the message of "Likey," it can take a lot of effort to wind up looking fresh and spontaneous. Twicetagram is sending an additional note to the mainstream that K-pop has found new power to crossover.
