K-pop girl group ITZY is poised to release its first full-length album almost two years after its February 2019 debut.
The group’s agency JYP Entertainment announced on social media, Friday, that the group’s new album “CRAZY IN LOVE,” with the lead track “LOCO,” will come out on Sept. 24.
“LOCO” is produced by K-pop producer duo Galactika, which produced and wrote two of ITZY’s hit songs, “Wannabe” and “DALLA DALLA.”
The five-member group, consisting of Yeji, Lia, Ryujin, Chaeryeong and Yuna, has garnered global fame as JYP’s latest girl group since TWICE.
It has released a string of hit songs since its debut single “DALLA DALLA,” including “ICY” and “Not Shy.”
The group’s latest EP, “Guess Who” released on April 30, made the Billboard 200 chart in May.
The album, which has “Mafia in the Morning” as the lead track, took the No. 148 spot on the chart. The Billboard 200 ranks the top 200 most popular albums and mini-albums in the United States. The group became the second-ever K-pop girl group to make it onto Billboard’s main album chart.
The mini-album also reached the No. 164 spot on Rolling Stone’s Top 200 album chart during the same month.
The group’s first full-length album will hit streaming sites at 1 p.m. (KST) on Sept. 24. Pre-orders began last Friday.Internet Explorer Channel Network
