To kick things off, TWICE earn their first No. 1 on the World Albums chart. The ninesome's recently released Twicetagram album had 1,000 copies sold in the week ending Nov. 2, according to Nielsen Music and marking the best-selling K-pop album in America this week. Twicetagram also marks the group's best first-week sales in America as the girl group's first full-length album likely contributing even more excitement. To date, TWICE have landed all five of their past EPs on World Albums starting with The Story Begins (which hit No. 15 in January 2016 when it was made available in America, despite being released in Korea in 2015), Page Two (which hit No. 6 in May 2016), Twicecoaster: Lane 1 (No. 3 in November 2016), Twicecoaster: Lane 2 (No. 4 in February 2017), and most recently Signal (No. 3 last June).
The group followed with J-pop album "BDZ" in 2018. Watch the music video to the chart-topping hit "What Is Love?" below. The hit is featured on their latest EP of the same name.
BLACKPINK makes history on Billboard's charts, as, among other feats, the all-female quartet debuts the highest-charting hit ever by a K-pop girl group on the Billboard Hot 100, with "DDU-DU DDU-DU" opening at No. 55 (on the chart dated June 30).
The only other all-female K-pop group with a Hot 100 hit to its credit is Wonder Girls, who scored one entry, "Nobody," in 2009. The track debuted and peaked at No. 76.
