Rookie girl group NiziU already breaking records with its latest track
JYP Entertainment's rookie girl group NiziU is already breaking records thanks to its latest track "Take a Picture," which became the most-streamed song on Oricon's weekly streaming chart during the week of March 29 to April 4.
According to Japan's Oricon chart, "Take a Picture," which was released on March 29, was streamed 12.5 million times, the highest ever recorded for the weekly chart.
"Take a Picture" dropped ahead of the release of the group's second EP "Take a Picture / Poppin' Shakin'" today as one of its two lead tracks.
NiziU's debut single "Step and a Step" was streamed 10 million times in the first week of its release in December last year making the group the first to have two songs surpass 10 million streams on the weekly chart in the first week of release.
NiziU, formed by JYP and Japan’s Sony Music Entertainment, consists of nine members who were the finalists of the music survival show “Nizi Project.” The group was trained by JYP Entertainment.
