2018–2019: Solo debut with "Twit" and solo career

After her first appearance on 'I Live Alone' variety show in June 2018, Hwasa has caused a sensation for gopchang (small intestine of pigs) all over South Korea. She has caused the delicacy to sell out across the country which earned her the titles "Gopchang Goddess" and "Hwasa Effect".

Hwasa made her debut as a solo artist with the digital single, 'TWIT' on 13th February 2019 which was considered one of the most successful solo debut. The song was on Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart for 6 weeks, peaking at #3. She participated in writing and composing the song and also successfully topped the Gaon Digital Chart in Korea. The song scored a "Triple Crown" (topping Gaon Digital, Gaon Download and Gaon Streaming charts).

2020–present: María and continued solo success

In March 2020, Hwasa teamed up with an English singer, Dua Lipa for a new remix version of "Physical" which includes Korean lyrics.

 

On 29th June 2020, Hwasa released her EP "Maria". The title track ranked at the top of the music charts including #1 in Genie, #2 in Melon, #2 in Naver Music, and #3 in Bugs. The title track 'Maria' is Hwasa's self-composed song, which she worked with producer Park Woo Sang and showed her infinite growth as a singer-songwriter. Hwasa's "Maria" ranked No. 1 on Worldwide iTunes Album Chart in 22 countries also making her the first Korean female solo artist to top the US iTunes Album Chart. "Maria" debuted at #6 on the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart, while the EP debuted at #7 on the Billboard World Albums and #81 on Billboard Top Current Albums Sales charts for the week of July 11, 2020.

On 24th November 2021, Hwasa released her single album "Guilty Pleasure" in which she participated in writing and composing the songs in the album.  2 songs from this album have landed on the Top 10 of Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart simultaneously; "I'm a B" at #7 and "Bless U" at #10. She's the first female Korean soloist to achieve such achievement for the year. Hwasa topped the music chart again with her new song "I'm a B". "FOMO" and "Bless U" also entered all major music charts, proving her music power.
