JYP Entertainment's TWICE dropped their latest mini-album, "Taste Of Love" on the 11th of June and it instantly became a hit as ONCEs (the fandom of TWICE) enjoyed the summer vibes the album gave, more specifically with the album's title track "Alcohol-Free."
Since then, TWICE's "Taste Of Love" has already garnered a huge amount of popularity! Recently, it reached a milestone no other female K-pop artist has achieved.
As of writing this article, yesterday on the 20th of June, Billboard revealed that TWICE's latest mini-album, "Taste of Love," made its debut on the 6th spot on Billboard's popular "Top 200 Albums chart."
Amongst this breakthrough, not only is this TWICE's first time becoming a part of the top 10 on Billboard's "Top 200 Albums chart," but TWICE's "Taste of Love" is now the first and only mini-album by any female K-pop artist ever to be a part of the top 10.
Additionally, TWICE's "Taste of Love" is also the second total overall release by a female K-pop artist to make the top 10 in the chart. The first being BLACKPINK's "THE ALBUM," which did this in 2020.
