Twicetagram is the first studio album by South Korean girl group Twice. It was released digitally and physically on October 30, 2017 by JYP Entertainment and distributed through Genie Music. The title Twicetagram is in reference to their official Instagram account of the same name.
The title track “Likey”, a future electro-pop single, was composed by Black Eyed Pilseung and Jeon Gun. It is the group’s fourth collaboration with Black Eyed Pilseung. Several composers and songwriters participated in the album including the Korean members of Twice as lyricists and former Wonder Girls’ member Hyerim who co-composed the eighth track titled “Look at Me”.
Background and release
It was revealed in early September 2017 that Twice filmed a new music video in Vancouver, Canada. On September 25, JYP Entertainment confirmed that the group would be releasing a new Korean album in late October though the exact date was still undecided.

The first group image teaser was uploaded online four days later.
