This will be ITZY’s latest comeback in over 8 months and it couldn’t come any sooner.
Ever since their debut in 2019, ITZY, whose members are Yeji, Lia, Yuna, Ryujin, and Chaeryeong, has blown up to be a powerhouse 4th gen girl group. From their catchy debut song DALLA DALLA to hit singles ICY, WANNABE, and Not Shy, ITZY never disappoints, and their latest comeback is aiming to do the same. Here is everything you need to know about ITZY’s newest comeback.
On March 22, ITZY announced their latest comeback with their upcoming release of their 4th mini-album, Guess Who. The album is set to be released on Friday, April 30, 2:00 PM, PH time. JYP described the album as having a sound that will “come as a surprise for their fans.” They further said that ITZY “would come up with offbeat dance moves and styling to showcase something different this time.”
The album will come in three versions: DAY, NIGHT, and DAY&NIGHT. Physical versions of the Guess Who album will include a photobook, the CD, 2 photocards, a mini folding poster, a sticker pack, and a newspaper. If you already pre-ordered the album or would like to pre-order the album, you will also get another poster, a postcard set, and a hidden card.
Guess Who will have six songs: Mafia In The Morning, Sorry Not Sorry, Kidding Me, Wild Wild West, Shoot!, and Tennis. The release of Guess Who will also coincide with an MV release for Mafia In The Morning, the title track for their comeback. The song was co-written and co-produced by J.Y. Park. This isn’t the first time he has worked on ITZY’s music as he also helped create their other songs like ICY and Not Shy.
Among those credited with making the album’s songs include earattack, who is credited on the lyrics, composition, and arrangement for Wild Wild West, whose name may sound familiar to GOT7 fans as he made Hard Carry. There is also JQ, a collaborator with Kang Daniel, who is credited on the lyrics for Tennis.

The group also recently released Trust Me (MIDZY); a song dedicated to their fans and as a way to express ITZY’s love to MIDZYs around the world.
