The group last made a comeback in August last year with the EP ‘Not Shy’, featuring the lead single of the same name. In January, ITZY also released their debut English-language EP, ‘Not Shy (English Version)’, which included English versions of their past singles like ‘Dalla Dalla’, ‘Icy’, ‘Wannabe’ and ‘Not Shy’.
Earlier this week, ITZY also released the digital single ‘Trust Me (MIDZY)’, a heartfelt song dedicated to their fans. The group premiered it during their “FAN PARTY LIVE”, a virtual fan event held on the same day.
“We wanted to convey our comfort in times of exhaustion and hardship,” ITZY said during the event. The group also took the time to express their love and gratitude for their fans, promising to “always trust and love each other as friends for life”.
ITZY debuted under JYP Entertainment in 2019 with their single album ‘It’z Different’, featuring the track ‘Dalla Dalla’. The song peaked at Number Two on the South Korean Gaon Digital Charts and remains their highest charting song thus far.
