JYP Entertainment’s Japanese Girl Group, NiziU, Is Back At It Again

NiziU, a J-pop girl group under JYP Entertain ment and Sony Music Entertainment, was created through the reality-survival program, "Nizi Project." 

Additionally, NiziU is composed of nine members: Mako the leader, Riku the lead vocalist, Rima the main rapper, Rio the main dancer, Maya the sub vocalist, Miihi the center, Mayukathe lead rapper, Ayaka the visual and sub-vocalist, and Nina the main vocalist and maknae.

NziU made their debut only last December 2 of 2020, with their song "Step and a Step." 

Even though they are a fairly new group, NiziU is already making rounds as they won a plethora of awards recently. The awards being Best Dance Video for their second single, "Make You Happy," Special Achievement Award, and two Idol Category awards from Yahoo! Japan Search Awards 2020 and Vogue Japan Women of the Year 2020.

Although categorized primarily under J-pop, NiziU also releases Korean versions of their songs. Additionally, since they are under JYP Entertainment, it is safe to say that the Japanese girl group is expected to be brilliant dancers.

Moving forward, their two songs were relatively silent. But everyone expected NiziU to gear up for their releases in 2021 and now, one song has been released and another song has been scheduled to be released in the second quarter of this year.

NiziU, JYP Entertainment's J-pop girl group, has returned once again with their latest single, "Poppin' Shakin'." The audio was released last February 19 and is a bop due to it being very upbeat. 

In addition, NiziU revealed the teaser and release date of "Take a picture," another Japanese single that is scheduled to release on April 7. They announced this on their official website. This song is a promotion for their campaign with the Coca-Cola brand.

This year is a busy year for the Japanese girl group, and it seems as though they are ready once again to emulate their initial success.
