IZ*ONE’s Japanese Studio Album “Twelve” Tops Oricon’s Weekly Album Chart
IZ*ONE has topped Oricon’s weekly album chart for the second time since their debut!
On October 27, Off the Record and Swing Entertainment announced that IZ*ONE’s first Japanese studio album, “Twelve,” had taken No. 1 on Oricon’s weekly album chart for the week of October 19 to 26.
This is the second time that IZ*ONE has topped Oricon’s weekly album chart, after their debut album “COLOR*IZ” first did so in 2018.
“Twelve” contains original Japanese songs like “Beware,” “Suki to Iwasetai,” and “Vampire,” as well as Japanese versions of IZ*ONE’s Korean title tracks, such as “La Vie en Rose,” “Violeta,” and “FIESTA.” For these Japanese versions, IZ*ONE’s Japanese members, Honda Hitomi, Miyawaki Sakura, and Yabuki Nako, were directly involved in writing lyrics.
This is the latest in a series of chart accomplishments for IZ*ONE, who recently broke the record among K-pop girl groups for first-day sales on Oricon’s daily album chart. Two of IZ*ONE’s singles have been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ), while all of their albums to date have placed within the top five of Oricon’s weekly album chart.
Congratulations to IZ*ONE!
