South Korean girl group (G)I-DLE is known for writing and producing their own music—a rarity in K-pop—and for hits featuring a sound that draws from hip-hop, EDM, Latin pop, and moombahton.
∙ “LATATA,” the breakout single from their debut EP, I am, earned them top billing on Billboard’s list of the 10 Best New K-Pop Acts of 2018.
∙ Members Soyeon and Miyeon also sing with K/DA, a League of Legends video game-based virtual group, whose 2018 smash “POP/STARS” topped the Billboard World Digital Sales chart.
∙ After (G)I-DLE appeared on the finale of the musical competition show Queendom, their 2019 single “Lion” raced up the charts and won a Performance Award from the Golden Disc Awards.
∙ Their 2020 EP, I trust—boosted by the hit track “Oh my god”—was the group’s first to reach No. 1 on South Korea’s Gaon Album Chart.
