Twice, the popular K-Pop 9-member girl group under JYP entertainment has come out with another album, Formula of Love O+T=<3.  The album includes 16 tracks and its title track is the song “Scientist”.

The tracks in this album are “Scientist”, “Moonlight”, “Icon”, “Cruel”, “Real You”, “F.I.L.A”(Fall In Love Again), “Last Waltz”, “Espresso”, “Rewind”, “Cactus”, “Push and Pull”, “Hello”, “1,3,2” , “Candy”, “The Feels”, and  “Scientist R3HAB remix”. For 3 of the songs, the 9 members split into trios and each of those songs is sung by 3 different members. The album has over 700,000 preorders.

The members of Twice are Park Jihyo, Im Nayeon, Yoo Jeongeon, Chou Tzuyu, Myoi Mina, Hirai Momo, Minatozaki Sana, Son Chaeyoung, and Kim Dahyun. They were assembled by a reality survival show called SIXTEEN by Park Jinyoung(JYP of  JYP Entertainment); their debut date was October 20, 2015. Twice is known for their hit song, Fancy.

I personally think that Twice is an amazing girl group with great title tracks, choreographies, and vocals. The songs I recommended from this album are “Last Waltz” and “Cruel”. The title track “Scientist” is a fun, bubble gum pop song with an obvious scientist concept. Twice has done many different concepts, almost all of them getting positive feedback from fans.

An article at the said “Overall ‘Formula of Love: O+T=<3’ by TWICE is an outstanding album filled with groovy bops. They really outdid themselves. Fans will adore this album for many years to come.”

With fourth-gen girl groups building their career, the likes of Red Velvet, Blackpink, and Twice continue to showcase that they still have the star power despite the influx of new talent in the saturated KPop industry,” said fans in the same article.
