Twice is sweeping music charts again with its new mini album “TWICEcoaster: LANE 2.” After its release Sunday at midnight, the lead track “Knock Knock” climbed to the top spot across all eight local music charts, including Melon, Genie, Bugs and Mnet, within just eight hours.
Another track on the album, “Melting,” secured the No. 2 spot on Soribada, Mnet and Olleh music. It ranked within the top five on Naver music, Genie and Bugs. The new album is a repackaged version of the band’s previous album “TWICEcoaster: LANE1,” with two additional tracks.
Prior to the new album’s release, Twice held concerts in Seoul from Friday to Sunday.
Since its October 2015 debut, the nine-member group has enjoyed record popularity with hit songs such as “Ooh-Ahh,” “Cheer Up” and “TT.”
