IZ*ONE To Perform On Japan’s “Music Station” After Topping Multiple J-Pop Charts
IZ*ONE will be appearing on the popular Japanese music show “Music Station” this week!
On February 9, IZ*ONE’s agency Off The Record Entertainment announced that the “Produce 48” project group would be performing on the February 15 episode of TV Asahi’s “Music Station.”
A representative of the agency commented, “As the most popular music show in Japan, ‘Music Station’ is a program that features Japan’s most iconic singers, as well as famous foreign pop stars. [The appearance] serves to confirm IZ*ONE’s status [in Japan].”
After debuting in Korea last October, IZ*ONE recently made a record-breaking debut in Japan as well. The girl group’s Japanese debut single, “Suki to Iwasetai,” managed to beat out popular Japanese boy group Kis-My-Ft2 to top Oricon’s daily singles chart immediately upon its release on February 6.
Not only did IZ*ONE manage to break the first-day sales record for a single released by a K-pop girl group in Japan (previously held by TWICE’s “Wake Me Up“), but the group also achieved the second-highest first-day sales of any girl group debut in Japan—trailing only the famous Japanese girl group HKT48, who debuted in 2011.
IZ*ONE topped a number of other charts in Japan with “Suki to Iwasetai” as well, including Japanese streaming service Line Music’s Top 100 chart. The single also reached No. 1 on iTunes J-pop charts in five different countries.
Congratulations to IZ*ONE on their successful Japanese debut!
