The powerhouse girl group ITZY, known for their electrifying performances and captivating music, has marked a significant milestone in their career. On August 11, they secured their very first music show trophy for their latest title track “Cake.” ITZY, comprising five talented members, has been making waves under the renowned JYP Entertainment label. Despite the absence of a new episode of KBS 2TV’s “Music Bank” on August 11 due to the World Scout Jamboree “K-Pop Super Live,” the show’s official website eagerly announced the winner of the week. ITZY’s “Cake” emerged victorious by accumulating an impressive total of 10,866 points on the Music Bank K-Chart during the period spanning from July 31 to August 6.
The competition was fierce, with NewJeans’ enchanting track “Super Shy” securing second place with a total score of 5,885. The talented ladies of OH MY GIRL clinched the third spot with their delightful song “Summer Comes,” garnering a score of 4,704. The monumental win comes as ITZY celebrates the release of their seventh mini album, aptly titled “Kill My Doubt.” The album dropped on July 31, 2023, with the addictive and vibrant “Cake” serving as its title track. The physical album is available in a stunning array of 16 versions, including standard editions (A, B, C, & D), limited editions, unique individual member digipacks, individual member cassettes, and a special edition.
Fans were delighted when, on May 22, 2023, Chaeryeong revealed during an appearance on Good Day New York that ITZY had exciting plans for a summer comeback this year. Subsequently, on June 19, a tantalizing teaser video was unveiled on the group’s various social media platforms, announcing the highly anticipated release of their seventh mini album, “Kill My Doubt,” which ultimately graced the music scene on July 31. The commercial performance of “Cake” and “Kill My Doubt” has been nothing short of impressive. The track “Cake” skyrocketed to the top, claiming the #1 spot on the iTunes Top Albums chart in an impressive 14 different countries by August 1. Moreover, according to Hanteo, the first day of “Kill My Doubt’s” release witnessed an astounding 318,352 copies sold. The momentum continued into the first week, as the album achieved a remarkable sales figure of 823,742 copies.
