SEOUL, April 10 (Yonhap) -- K-pop girl group TWICE has hit another home run with its latest song, "What is Love?," which peaked at No. 1 on five major music streaming charts.
The lead track for the band's fifth EP album, which was released at 6 p.m. Monday, stood at No. 1 on five streaming services -- Melon, Naver Music, Bugs Music, Mnet and Soribada -- on the morning of April 10, a day after its release.
"What is Love?" -- a bright, up-tempo synthpop track -- was written by Park Jin-young, the founder of the group's management agency JYP Entertainment. It is the second song that the singer-turned-businessman has provided to TWICE after "Signal," which was released in May of last year.
Preorders of the EP, which is also titled "What is Love?" amounted to 350,000 physical units.
Since debuting in 2015 with "OOH-AHH," TWICE has become a reputable force in today's K-pop scene, churning out back-to-back hits, including "Cheer Up," "TT," "Knock Knock," "Signal," "Likey" and "Heartshaker." The nine-member act includes two Japanese singers and a Taiwanese member.
