The album "Guess Who," released on April 20, has proven to be one of the most successful releases by the group so far, with its hip-hop main track ranking No. 56 on the May 3 chart of global streaming giant Spotify.

ITZY also entered Billboard's Artist 100 chart for the first time, coming in at No. 99. The Artist 100 chart measures a singer's popularity across album and track sales, radio airplay and streaming as well as social media performance.

The all-female group -- consisting of members Yeji, Lia, Ryujin, Charyeong and Yuna -- debuted in February 2019 and became an instant success with a number of hit songs, including "Dalla Dalla," "Icy" and "Not Shy."
