K-pop group Mamamoo’s Hwasa on Thursday swept local music charts with her debut solo single “Twit” within a day of its release.

Dropped at 6 p.m. Wednesday, the track landed atop local music-streaming charts including Genie, Bugs, Soribada and Olleh Music.


This is Hwasa’s first solo track since she debuted five years ago with Mamamoo. It features trap beats with tropical elements that allow the singer’s unique vocals to stand out. The lyrics center on twits who do not take care of their loved ones.

The song’s music video showcases the singer’s charisma and confidence with a captivating performance.

According to Korean news outlet OSEN, Hwasa has expressed gratitude to fans for her achievements.

“I was more than satisfied with the song when it was released, but now, I’m just thankful that I am receiving such undeserved love,” she said.

Hwasa will showcase “Twit” onstage for the first time on Mnet’s “M Countdown” later in the day.
