‘Heart Shaker’ surpasses 200 million views

July 13,2018
Girl group Twice’s 2017 single “Heart Shaker” surpassed the 200 million view mark on YouTube, becoming the group’s fifth song to achieve the feat, their management agency announced on Thursday.

The music video for “Heart Shaker,” released in December, has garnered more than 200 million hits on the biggest video-sharing site as of 8 p.m. on Wednesday, JYP Entertainment said.

Twice now has five singles whose YouTube viewership has surpassed the 200 million threshold, the agency added.

In December, Twice’s 2016 release “TT” made history for garnering more than 300 million hits on YouTube. It was the first time a music video by a female-only K-pop act achieved the feat.

Three other Twice songs - “Cheer Up,” “Ooh-ahh” and “Likey” - exceeded the 200 million mark in August and November last year and March this year, respectively.

Earlier this week, the girl band dropped its latest EP “Summer Nights,” whose lead track “Dance the Night Away” took local music charts by storm immediately after its release.
