Story Behind #Twice2 by Twice
The first official news about this compilation album was first announced by Twice’s South Korean agency, JYP Entertainment. The agency told Once in January 2019 that Twice would release their next compilation album. The Japanese compilation album release day would be on March 6, 2019. Several days later, JYP Entertainment announced that there would be #Dreamday, the Twice Dome Tour in 2019. This #Dreamday concert would be done in March 2019, too.
The #Twice2 album has two Japanese lead singles. Those lead singles (the Japanese versions of “Likey” and “What Is Love?”) were both released as pre-release singles. There are also music videos for both of these singles. Those music videos were unveiled on the same day as the pre-release day, which was on January 10 for “Likey” and February 7 for “What Is Love?”
After the pre-release of the Japanese version of “What Is Love,” Warner Music Japan released a spoiler video. The spoiler video was released on February 13. After a while, on March 6, #Twice2 was officially released. On that day, Warner Music Japan released both the physical and digital versions of the compilation album. As announced before, Twice would hold the #Dreamday concert in March 2019. This dome tour would be the very first Twice tour to promote the #Twice2 compilation album.
