IVE's 'Eleven' Continues To Receive Spotlight, Are They The Next TWICE?
K-Pop monster rookie girl group IVE is receiving the spotlight from Billboard and Forbes.
Hugh McIntyre, a columnist for Forbes' Hollywood and Entertainment, expressed his expectations for Starship Entertainment's IVE.
Billboard recently introduced the chart "Hot Trending Songs Powered by Twitter" through the official website, and IVE's debut single "Eleven" enters the chart this week for the first time at No. 4.
IVE's "Eleven" also climbed to No. 9 on the "World Digital Song Sales Chart" within the week of its appearance in the Billboard chart.
The Forbe's columnist praised IVE's achievement saying, "IVE is now just the fifth South Korean girl group to land on the tally, matching some of the biggest and best there have ever been."
McIntyre also remarked that IVE's recent achievement puts them in shoulder to shoulder with the best K-Pop groups of all time.

In particular, the columnist pointed out that TWICE is currently considered the leader among K-Pop girl groups. The JYP Entertainment girl group is the only female non-solo act to land a spot on the "Hot Trending Songs Chart" after "The Feels" peaked at No.11 and "SCIENTIST" at No.4.
IVE's entry at No.4 puts the rookie girl group right behind TWICE and on par with established girl groups like BLACKPINK, ITZY, and aespa.
The "Hot Trending Songs Chart" is a chart that ranks the most mentioned songs on Twitter in the last 24 hours as well as in the past week.
