American business magazine Forbes spotlighted Twice as the best-selling female K-pop group, in a report that looked into the group’s YouTube views, album sales, and even its agency’s stock price.

In an article published Thursday, writer Tamar Herman described Twice as “one squad to keep an eye on,” highlighting that its influence goes beyond the K-pop scene and taps the global music market.

Herman outlined how Twice has developed into a behemoth in K-pop, representing the group’s fast-developing career in numbers.

Some noteworthy figures included the 22 hours taken for the song “Likey” to hit 10 million views on YouTube after its release; JYP Entertainment’s five-year record-high stock price of 12,100 won ahead of Twice’s release of “Likey”; and the group’s combined 1,608,310 albums sold as of Saturday.
