It goes without saying that TWICE are massively popular in Japan ever since they debuted in the country a few months ago, and now this popularity has translated some record-breaking success on the Japanese Billboard charts!
For the week ending on October 16 on the Billboard Japan Hot 100 chart, TWICE's monster hit single "TT" managed to come in at No.17. While this is a great achievement, the bigger accomplishment is that "TT" has been on the Japan Hot 100 for a whopping 50 weeks, making it far and away the longest time a K-pop girl group song has stayed on the chart!
Perhaps even more impressive is that each of TWICE's other singles - "Like Ooh Ahh," "Cheer Up," "Knock Knock," "Signal," and "One More Time" - are all currently also on the Japan Hot 100, having logged up 20, 24, 33, 21, and 3 weeks respectively.
A big congrats to TWICE for their massive success on the Japanese Billboard charts! Looking forward to your big comeback soon!
