Virtual Girl Group K/DA (Featuring Voices Of (G)I-DLE And TWICE Members) Debuts On Billboard 200 With “ALL OUT”
K/DA has landed a spot on the Billboard 200 chart for the first time!
Riot Games’ virtual group K/DA was launched in 2018 when League of Legends champions were transformed into idols. The group is made up of characters Ahri, Kai’Sa, Evelynn, and Akali, with many musicians now collaborating to provide vocals.
K/DA released their first mini album “ALL OUT” on November 6. (G)I-DLE members Soyeon and Miyeon have been frequent collaborators for the group, and they lent their voices to the songs “THE BADDEST” and “MORE” on the album. TWICE’s Jihyo, Nayeon, Sana, and Chaeyoung teamed up with K/DA for the first time to provide vocals for “I’LL SHOW YOU.”
Billboard announced that K/DA’s “ALL OUT” debuted on the Billboard 200 chart this week at No. 176. The chart ranks the most popular albums in the United States, across all genres.
This is the first time that (G)I-DLE’s Miyeon and Soyeon have participated in an album that made it on the Billboard 200. TWICE debuted on the chart with their album “MORE & MORE” this summer.
Billboard’s charts for this week (dated November 21) will be shared on its site on November 17.
Congratulations to everyone!
Editor’s note: This article has been updated to reflect that K/DA’s ranking on the Billboard 200 is No. 176, rather than No. 175 as announced by the Billboard Charts Twitter account on November 16 local time.
