After the huge success of mini-album 'TWICEcoaster: Lane 1', girl group TWICE is all set to release their next mini-album 'TWICEcoaster: Lane 2.' On February 6, the nine-member band released an official teaser image, which is a follow-up of their smash hit. According to their Twitter update, the album's pre-order starts on February 13.

Interestingly, their 'TWICEcoaster: Lane 1' was a huge hit with 'TT' securing 100 million YouTube hits in just 71 days, becoming the fastest K-pop group to achieve it. With this, they have broken their previous record of 100 million views 207 days for their single 'Cheer Up.' "TT" is the lead track off the group's third EP 'TWICEcoaster:LANE1'.

The album was released on October 24, 2016, and contained seven tracks, including the lead single, 'TT' produced by Black Eyed Pilseung which had the members showcasing different personalities and famous characters through Halloween-themed cosplays.

In 2016, the girls had a dream run by selling about 225,000 copies of their two versions of the third mini-album. According to the Gaon chart, the girls sold 220,000 copies of the album so far, making TWICE the highest selling girl group in Gaon's history as well.

And most recently the band was praised for its professionalism at an awkward situation during the end-of-the-year K-pop special event, the 2016 SBS Gayo Daejun. When the members were ready to perform, the event organisers accidentally played a different track instead of 'TT'. However, TWICE girls remained in their position until the error was rectified and the show continued.

Started in 2015, the road to success was never a catwalk for TWICE but they made sure to trounce all the hurdles with hard work and excellence. The group is composed of nine members: Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, and Tzuyu. Today, with an amazing fan base across the globe, TWICE is already compared to two legendary Kpop Girl Bands, 2NE1 and Girls Generation. They are also one of the few Kpop bands to top the Billiboard charts for more than 4 weeks.
