On August 20, Rexha made her KCON debut when she joined ITZY members Yeji and Ryujin on stage for a special performance of her 2021 single ‘Break My Heart Myself’.
“No, I don’t need your help / To make me sick, to make me ill / I don’t need anybody else / ‘Cause I can break my heart myself,” they sing together in the chorus.

Back in July, Yeji and Ryujin joined the singer on a remix of ‘Break My Heart Myself’ after the ITZY duo performed a dance duet to the song on Studio Choom’s ‘MIX & MAX’ series on YouTube. The clip soon became the most-viewed in that series and one of the channel’s most popular videos.
Last month, ITZY made their first comeback in nearly a year with their fifth mini-album ‘Checkmate’. Led by the single ‘Sneakers’, the record debuted at Number Eight on Billboard 200, marking the quintet’s first-ever Top 10 entry on the chart.
In support of the release, ITZY kicked off their ‘Checkmate’ world tour earlier this month with a two-night residency in Seoul. The North American leg of the tour is set to begin on October 26 in Los Angeles, California, and will hit a total of 8 US cities.
