TWICE sing, dance and ‘Talk that Talk’ in new mini-album ‘Between 1&2’

  • K-pop superstars TWICE made their summer comeback on Friday with the mini-album “Between 1&2” and the music video for title track “Talk that Talk.”
  • The mini-album has seven songs in total, three of which were written by members Jihyo, Chaeyoung and Dahyun. 
  • This is the group’s first domestic release of the year and their latest since all nine members renewed their contracts with JYP Entertainment last month. 
  • Before the release of “Between 1&2,” TWICE’s latest albums were their Japanese-language album “Celebrate” and their third full-length studio album “Formula of Love: O+T=<3.”

TWICE dropped their new mini-album “Between 1&2” and the music video for title track “Talk that Talk” on Friday.

The girl group’s latest album comes with six other tracks apart from the lead single: “Queen of Hearts,” “Basics,” “Trouble,” “Brave,” “Gone” and “When We Were Kids.” Members Chaeyoung, Jihyo and Dahyun helped to create some of the new songs. While Chaeyoung wrote lyrics for “Basics” and Dahyun wrote lyrics for “Gone” and “When We Were Kids,” Jihyo co-composed and penned “Trouble.”   

This is TWICE’s first domestic comeback of the year and their latest since all nine members announced their unanimous contract renewal with their label JYP Entertainment a month ago.

In their music video for “Talk that Talk,” TWICE hid a special message for their fans, ONCE, in the final scene. A QR code directs viewers to an Instagram post from Nov. 3, 2015, which is when the group’s official fandom name was created. Per a translation from Koreaboo, the caption of the post reads,

Our fans love the word “ONCE.” ONCE and TWICE. We feel like “ONCE” and “TWICE” go together like needle and thread. For all the support that we’ve received from ONCEs, even if it was only for once, we’re set on returning it twice as much. In life, making genuine connections—even the brief ones—is definitely rare. So we’re grateful for ONCEs who give us that kind of love. As TWICE, we’ll continue to work hard so that you can’t forget about us once you get to know us. ONCE & TWICE, let us be forever. We love you!”

“Between 1&2” is a follow-up to TWICE’s third full-length studio album “Formula of Love: O+T=<3” which was released in November last year. The album is led by the title track “Scientist” and includes the group’s first-ever English-language single “The Feels.” The group performed “The Feels” during their live U.S. television debut on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” in May.

A month ago, TWICE released their fourth full-length Japanese-language album “Celebrate” with the lead single of the same name. In June, member Im Nayeon became the first in the group to release a solo album.
