Lion Heart is the fifth Korean language studio album recorded by South Korean girl group Girls' Generation. It marked their first record as an eight-member group since the departure of member Jessica in September 2014. Produced by Lee Soo-man, Lion Heart musically encompasses styles of electropop and bubblegum pop. It was released in two parts throughout August 18 and August 19, 2015 by S.M. Entertainment; another version with a different cover titled You Think was distributed on August 26, 2015. The album spawned three singles. Its lead single, "Party", was released on July 7, 2015, and peaked atop the Gaon Digital Chart, further reaching number ten on the Japan Hot 100. It was followed up by "Lion Heart" and "You Think" in August 2015, charting at number four and thirty on the Gaon Digital Chart, respectively. In order to promote the record, Girls' Generation appeared on several South Korean music programs, such as Music Bank, Show! Music Core, and Inkigayo, where they performed material from the album. The group additionally embarked on a concert tour named Girls' Generation's Phantasia, which commenced on November 21, 2015 in Seoul and visited East and Southeast Asia. Lion Heart received mixed reviews from music critics, who opined that the album's styles were too generic and considered it a decline in the group's career. Commercially, the record experienced commercial acclaim in South Korea, staying atop the Gaon Album Chart for two weeks and becoming the 13th best-selling album of 2015 in that country. It also appeared on United States' Billboard World Albums Chart, and charted at number 11 on the Japanese Oricon Albums Chart.
