Let The Battle Begin! TWICE’s ‘Dance The Night Away’ vs BLACKPINK’s ‘Forever Young’
On the same day TWICE kicked off their first summer comeback with ‘Dance the Night Away’, BLACKPINK announced that they will be using ‘Forever Young’ as their second headline song to extend their activity time. It is the first time these top 2 K-pop girl groups have simultaneously made a comeback.
Even though ‘Dance the Night Away’ is just a song from a special album, TWICE achieved the Real Time strikedown (from real-time streaming no.1 in all music streaming platforms) as usual, this is their 9th straight win after “Like OOH AHH”, “Cheer Up”, “TT”, “Knock Knock”, “Signal”, “LIKEY”, “Heart Shaker”, and “What Is Love?” They broke their own record by obtaining over 10M view rates in Youtube in 8 hours.
On the other hand, BLACKPINK broke most of the K-pop girl group youtube view rate records with “DDU-DU-DDU-DU”, and retain their no.1 position on streaming in most music platforms until TWICE released the new song. ‘Forever Young’, as the side track of the album, also remains in high ranking in the chart. Since BLACKPINK is extending their comeback period with ‘Forever Young’, can we predict the song will climb up higher in the chart?
