The girl group TWICE has conquered the top spot on the main Billboard chart, the 'Billboard 200', in the United States.

According to the announcement made on the official Billboard website on the 3rd (local time), TWICE's new mini-album 'With YOU-th', released on the 23rd of last month, rose to No. 1 on the 'Billboard 200' with 95,000 units sold in the United States (according to Nielsen Music's tally).

Previously, TWICE set a record for the highest sales by a K-pop girl group in Billboard history with their previous work, "READY TO BE," which entered the 'Billboard 200' at No. 2 in March 2023, achieving a combined album and streaming sales of 153,000 copies.

In addition, since their first entry onto the 'Billboard 200' chart with the mini 9th album "MORE & MORE" in June 2020, TWICE has set a record for the most entries by a K-pop girl group on the 'Billboard 200' chart, including their 2nd full-length album "Eyes wide open," mini 10th album "Taste of Love," 3rd full-length album "Formula of Love: O+T=<3," mini 11th album "BETWEEN 1&2," 'READY TO BE,' and now 'With YOU-th'.

Especially, TWICE has achieved the first No. 1 record on the 'Billboard 200' chart for a non-English album this year.

'With YOU-th' recorded 1,063,615 copies in first-week album sales according to Hanteo Chart, entering the million-seller ranks. Debuting in October 2015, TWICE is in their 10th year since debut and made their first-week million-selling work in their career and set a new record by achieving No. 1 on the 'Billboard 200'.

The steady growth and continuous progress of TWICE, the representative girl group of K-pop, are evident, and domestic and international K-pop fans, including ONCE (fandom name: ONCE), are congratulating and cheering, saying, "TWICE, as expected."

Previously, the album 'With YOU-th' topped the worldwide iTunes album chart for three consecutive days from February 23 to March 3, and until the 26th, it topped the iTunes album chart in 25 regions worldwide, including the United States, Japan, and Mexico. The music video for the title track 'ONE SPARK' topped the YouTube Music Video Trending Worldwide chart for three days starting from the 24th.

On the 16th, TWICE will continue the fervent atmosphere of their fifth world tour, 'READY TO BE', which is held in 27 regions worldwide and has a scale of 49 times, at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, USA. In July, they will shine at the Yanmar Stadium Nagai in Osaka, Japan, and the Nissan Stadium in Kanagawa, which is known for being the first female artist from overseas to enter, establishing their reputation as 'Global Stadium Artists'.
