    Girls’ Generation TaeTiSeo, also known as Girls’ Generation-TTS, has successfully concluded their first ever performance on a music program as a subunit of Girls’ Generation with their new songs ‘Twinkle’ and ‘Baby Steps’ on Thursday’s M!Countdown.
    The mini album ‘Twinkle’, which consists of seven new songs, was released online worldwide on April 29th through iTunes and the all-time high record managed to break all previous records set by Korean artistes. Back in Korea, ‘Twinkle’ achieved an ‘all-kill‘ on real-time music charts across the country including melOn, Mnet, Olleh Music and Daum Music within hours of its release. The physical album, which was released on May 2nd, has garnered a total sales of over 24,000 copies in just two days according to the Hanteo Charts. In addition to that, the mini album also did well on preorder charts in Japan‘s Tower Records and HMV, proving the popularity of Girls’ Generation worldwide once again!

    Therefore, it should not come as a surprise when more records are broken by the unstoppable power of Girls’ Generation. Amazingly, ‘Twinkle’, a non-English album, made its debut on the US Billboard 200 Chart at #126, an unprecedented record for Korean artistes. The Billboard charts shows the weekly popularity of songs or albums in the US and the two primary charts are the Hot 100 (top 100 singles) and the Billboard 200 (top 200 albums). Also, the newly-released mini album, which was not promoted in the US, made it to #1 of Billboard’s World Albums chart, #2 on the Heatseekers Albums chart and #21 on Independent Albums chart. This shows the change in music preference worldwide and in America, which signifies the growth of the Hallyu wave globally.

    Within three days after its release, the ‘Twinkle’ music video uploaded on SMTOWN’s YouTube page has achieved more than five million views and that is not including the whooping 14 million views for Taeyeon, Tiffany and Seohyun’s individual teasers, which were released one each day before the mini album was released.
