(G)I-DLE made its debut in 2018 and soared to stardom with hits such as “Latata” (2018), “Han” (2018) and “Senorita” (2019) - all penned by the talented leader Soyeon.

Last year, (G)I-DLE stormed charts with “Lion,” a song also written by Soyeon while the group appeared on Mnet’s music program “Queendom” on which it competed with five other female K-pop acts.

The song charted on Billboard’s World Digital Song Sales chart for four weeks after its release.
