(G)I-DLE is a Korean pop group that surged onto the international stage with the debut EP I Am in 2018. The girl group was formed earlier than year in Seoul, South Korea, with singers Miyeon, Minnie, Soojin, Soyeon, Yuqi, and Shuhua forming the initial lineup. I Am reached Number 13 on the Gaon Album Chart and peaked at Number 5 on the Billboard World Album Chart, its success boosted by the Top 20 single "Latata." The follow-up single "Hann (Alone)" fared even better, reaching Number 2 on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales Chart. Both songs were written and co-produced by Soyeon, who quickly emerged as (G)I-DLE's leader. Before 2018 came to a close, Soyeon and Miyeon earned a Number 1 hit on the World Digital Songs chart with "Pop/Stars," a collaboration with American artists Madison Beer and Jaira Burns. Released under the name K/DA, the song was certified gold in America. Back overseas, (G)I-DLE's second EP, I Made, arrived in 2019 and charted at Number 2 in South Korea, with 2020's I Trust reaching Number 1. (G)I-DLE also broke into the Japanese market with the Latata EP, which featured Japanese versions of the group's K-pop hits and hit Number 5 on the Oricon Albums Chart. Soyeon and Miyeon charted two more Number 1 hits on the World Digital Songs chart with K/DA's "The Baddest" and "More," both of which were released in 2020, and (G)I-DLE later earned a Number 1 hit of its own with "Tomboy." Released in 2022, "Tomboy" topped the Gaon Digital Chart and the K-pop Hot 100. It also doubled as the first single from the group's first full-length album, 2022's I Never Die, which reached Number 2 in South Korea and Number 13 on the US World Albums chart. (G)I-DLE followed this with triple platinum EPs I Love (2022) and I Feel (2023), announcing in July that they would be collaborating with 88rising on an all-English EP titled Heat, released on September 7, with lead single "I Do," charting across four countries, reaching number 13 in Taiwan.
