The song also debuted as the second most popular song on YouTube. This garnered them the rightful title of “monster rookies.”
The visually explosive music video for “Dalla Dalla” surpassed a whopping 17.1 million views within 24 hours of release. This broke the record for the most-viewed K-pop debut music video within 24 hours. It then went on to break the record for the fastest K-pop debut music video to reach 100 million views. ITZY became the fastest girl group to achieve their first music show win when they won first place with “Dalla Dalla” on “M Countdown” on Feb. 21, 2019.
According to Billboard, ITZY premiered at #34 on the Emerging Artists chart after the release of their second single “Icy” and first album “It’z Icy.” Previously the group peaked at #19 on the Social 50 chart. “Icy” peaked at No. 7 on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart. To date, the music video has racked up over 108 million views since its late-July release.
The female quintet’s name exudes a powerful confidence. It screams, “We have everything you want, right?” ITZY references the Korean phrase “있지,” which translates as “to have,” “have/got it” or “there is.” Undoubtedly, the name holds a significant purpose. It conveys the idea that the five-member ensemble has everything that fans could hope for in a group. The group has almost 1.8 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone.
