TWICE Sets A New Record For K-Pop Girl Groups With Sales On Oricon’s Daily Album Chart
TWICE has broken the record for K-pop girl groups with their first day sales on Oricon!
On March 6, TWICE released their second Japanese compilation album “#TWICE2,” including Korean and Japanese versions of their hits “Likey,” “Heart Shaker,” “What Is Love?” “Dance the Night Away” and “YES or YES.”
According to Japan’s largest music statistics site Oricon, “#TWICE2” sold 95,825 units in its first day, earning the No. 1 spot on Oricon’s daily album chart for March 5.
The previous highest record for a K-pop girl group on Oricon’s daily album chart since the ranking began in 2008 was set by TWICE’s “BDZ” last September when it reached 89,721 in first day sales. TWICE has therefore beat their own record!
TWICE is gearing up for their Japanese dome tour, which begins with concerts at the Kyocera Dome Osaka on March 20 and 21 and will continue with shows at the Tokyo Dome on March 29 and 30 and the Nagoya Dome on April 6. They’ll be performing for 210,000 fans overall, and earlier this week all tickets were completely snapped up within a minute of going on sale.
Meanwhile, the group is also currently preparing a Korean comeback that’s slated for April.
Congratulations to TWICE!
