AKP STAFF

In a groundbreaking achievement, ILLIT has entered the prestigious US Billboard chart a mere 8 days after their debut. According to the latest chart data released by U.S. Billboard on April 2, the title track "Magnetic" from ILLIT's debut mini album 'SUPER REAL ME' has secured the 63rd position on the 'Global 200' chart and the 33rd spot on the 'Global (excluding the United States)' chart. This marks the highest debut song ranking for a K-pop girl group on both charts.

Additionally, 'SUPER REAL ME' has clinched impressive positions on other Billboard charts, including the 10th spot on the 'World Albums' chart and the 15th position on the 'Heatseekers Albums' chart, which highlights emerging musicians worldwide. With this accomplishment, ILLIT has made a sensational debut by entering a total of 4 Billboard charts within the first week of their release.

Notably, the group's success extends to Spotify, the world's largest music streaming platform, where "Magnetic" became the first debut song by a K-pop girl group to chart on the 'Daily Top Song Global' upon its release. 

In addition to their digital achievements, ILLIT has made a significant impact in physical album sales. Based on Hanteo Chart data, 'SUPER REAL ME' sold over 380,000 copies in its debut week, setting a new record for the highest album sales by a debut K-pop girl group within the first week of release. This remarkable feat has propelled ILLIT's debut album to rank among the 'Top 5' highest-selling debut albums of all time.

With their exceptional debut success, ILLIT continues to captivate K-pop fans worldwide.

Probably has to with HYBE's recent partnership with Universal Music.

Even factoring in HYBE and R U Next?, it's kind of weird that ILLIT got *this* popular immediately. They don't have much of an identity yet, even though "Magnetic" is a good song. And I say that as someone who watched R U Next? and a lot of their predebut content.
