JYP Entertainment's globally popular girl group TWICE has made a new Billboard 200 history with their new summer release 'Taste of Love'. The new offering of 'Alcohol-Free' crooners becomes the first mini-album by a K-pop female group to stand at number 6 in Billboard 200, standing close to Blackpink who debuted their full length 'Album' at 2nd position last year.

'Taste of Love', which was released on June 11 after the premiere of the lead single 'Alcohol-Free' on June 9, has entered the top 10 chart of Billboard 200 as TWICE's first album to come atop. Previously 'Eyes wide Open', the K-pop act's 2020 hit album peaked at number 72 and 'More and More' at 200.
