Not content with seeing hit track Cheer Up surpass 300 million YouTube views at the start of the week, the latest track by K-pop girl group Twice is already breaking records less than two days after it was released.
On Monday evening, Twice released their sixth EP titled “Yes or Yes” and the title track was viewed more than 28 million times in the first 24 hours.
Yes or Yes became the fastest K-pop girl group music video to hit 20 million views, doing so in just 10 hours and 27 minutes.
By Wednesday morning, it had already surpassed 35 million views on YouTube.
The album’s title track says that yes should be the only answer when a girl confesses her love.
It was written by Shim Eun-ji, who wrote the lyrics for Knock Knock, and was composed by David Amber and Andy Love who previously created Heart Shaker.
The album features a total of seven tracks, including BDZ, the title track from the group’s first Japanese studio album.
On Sunday evening, Cheer Up broke the 300 million barrier more than two and a half years since it was uploaded onto the global video sharing service in April 2016.
The nine-piece group became the first female K-pop artists to hit a record 400 million views with the music video for TT in September.
Twice also garnered more than 100 million views with all of the videos for its nine hit songs, ranging from debut single Ooh-Ahh to the Dance The Night Away.
