Cube Entertainment has unveiled their new K-pop girl group Lightsum, which debuted with the single “Vanilla” on June 10.
Lightsum is made up of eight members. Chown, Nayoung, and Yujeong were on Mnet’s survival audition television show “Produce 48”, which spawned IZ * ONE while Juhyeon appeared on “The Unit” and “Dancing High.” The other members are Sangah, Hina, Huiyeon and Jian, 14, the youngest idol to debut on the current K-pop scene.
According to Hanteo Chart, “Vanilla” sold 8,305 copies on its first day of release, June 10, to rank third in the daily album chart behind EXO and Wei.
The music video for “Vanilla” garnered 2.34 million views in the 17 hours after it was released at 5 p.m. PT on June 10.
Lightsum stands for “a group of brilliant LIGHTS coming together in one SUM to enlighten everyone in this world and bring more positive energy to people through their message of hope,” according to their agency.
“Vanilla”, on the other hand, means that “Lightsum’s special and revealing vanilla taste will be a magical gift for your ordinary day”.
The song is a pop dance song produced by Steven Lee, who produced and arranged the song “In Memories” from The Avengers and “Secret Garden” and “Nonstop” from Oh My Girl; Caroline Gustavsson, a Swedish songwriter who has produced songs for Girls’ Generation, AOA and GFRIEND; and J.
