TWICE just released their newest track "Signal" and it has been highly-successful despite earlier backlash for allegedly copying S.M. Entertainment's South Korean-Chinese boy group, EXO. The all-girl South Korean girl group made an epic comeback on the scene with their new hit song and they achieved an impressive all-kill rating!

Nayeon (Im Na-yeon ), Jeongyeon (Yoo Jeong-yeon), Momo (Momo Hirai), Sana (Sana Minatozaki), Jihyo (Park Ji-hyo), Mina (Mina Myoui), Dahyun (Kim Da-hyun ), Chaeyoung (Son Chae-young), and Tzuyu (Chou Tzu-yu), or better known as TWICE, topped six real-time music charts after releasing their comeback single “Signal.” The JYP Entertainment girl group nabbed a clean sweep and took the top spot from strong contenders like Psy and Unnies.

TWICE have been giving their fans last song syndrome- worthy tracks, like "TT," "Cheer Up," and "Knock Knock." The group are usually known for being cute and adorable, but they made sure that their comeback will be a different one.

The nine-member girl group have already previously hinted that they will drop their cute ways and they sort of achieved it in "Signal." The girls still look adorable as always but their content has significantly changed.

Instead of wearing bunny ears and being a little fairy, TWICE were rocking some amazing superpowers in "Signal." However, some Kpop fans have pointed out that the group copied EXO's previous comeback where Xiumin, Suho, Lay, Baekhyun, Chen, Chanyeol, D.O., Kai, and Sehun also had supernatural powers, as reported by Allkpop.

TWICE's "Signal" music video got a shocking amount of dislikes, and these thumbs down are most probably coming from EXO fans. But despite being criticized for having a similar concept with EXO, TWICE proved that their success just couldn't be stopped.
