Girl group TWICE's new album made the Billboard 200 albums chart's top 10.
TWICE "debuts at No. 6 with 'Taste of Love' with 46,000 equivalent album units earned" for the week ending June 17, Billboard said.
The nine-member band's second full-length album, "Eyes Wide Open," already reached 72nd on the chart in December last year, but with "Taste of Love," which was released on June 11, TWICE became the second Korean girl band to make the top 10 on the U.S. chart, following Black Pink. The quartet's first full-length album, "The Album," debuted at No. 2 in October last year.
TWICE are also expanding their presence in North America after signing a deal with Republic Records, an American record label owned by Universal Music, in February last year.
They appeared on the popular U.S. talk show "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" earlier this month to promote their new album.
Their music video for "Alcohol-Free," the lead track from the album, surpassed 100 million views on YouTube just 11 days after its release.
