Group IV (IVE, Ahn Yu-jin, Ga Eul, Lay, Jang Won-young, Liz, Lee Seo) added the '100 million streaming' record on Billboard Japan.

According to Billboard Japan on the 13th, the title song 'I AM' from Ive's first full-length album 'I've IVE' surpassed 100 million cumulative views on the latest 'Streaming Song' chart.

The full-length album title song 'I AM', released in April last year, entered the Billboard Japan's 'Streaming Song' chart at number 14 and led the discussion. Starting with the debut song 'ELEVEN', followed by the second single 'LOVE DIVE' and the third single 'After LIKE', this is Ive's fourth album to reach 100 million streams on Billboard Japan. Billboard Japan highlighted Ive's fourth achievement of 100 million streams through its official website.

Ive is currently on a world tour called 'IVE THE 1ST WORLD TOUR 'SHOW WHAT I HAVE', which started in Seoul last October. In particular, Ive's world tour performances held in Yokohama, Fukuoka, and Osaka, Japan attracted a total of 78,000 audiences, proving the ticket power in the local market.

Ive, who debuted in October 2022 and began his Japanese activities in earnest, became a hot topic by being listed on the 'Gold Disc' selected by the Recording Industry Association of Japan with his debut single album 'Eleven'. The first Japanese album 'WAVE', released in May last year, swept local charts, including No. 1 on the Oricon Daily and Weekly Album Charts, No. 1 on the Tower Records All-Sales Album Chart, and No. 1 on the Billboard Japan Weekly Top Album Sales Chart.

Local media's interest in Ive continued. Ive participated in Japan's year-end song festival NHK's 'Red and White Song Festival' and Japan's representative program TBS' CDTV Live! Live!’, Fuji TV’s ‘Mezamashi TV’, and TV Asahi’s ‘Music Station’, proving their popularity in Japan.

Ive will meet fans on the 'Show What I Have' Americas tour, starting in Los Angeles, USA on the 13th (local time) and stopping in Oakland, Fort Worth, Atlanta, Rosemont, and Newark.
