Last month, Illit, a South Korean girl group, launched their music career with the release of their debut EP, Super Real Me. Just weeks later, the lead single from the EP, titled “Magnetic,” made history by reaching the Hot 100 chart in America, one of the most important music markets in the world. The single debuted at No. 91 on the chart, marking Illit’s first appearance on the Hot 100.

With “Magnetic” entering the Hot 100, Illit became just the seventh girl group from South Korea to achieve a placement on the prestigious chart. The group joins a list of other successful female musical troupes from South Korea, including well-known acts like Blackpink, Fifty Fifty, Le Sserafim, NewJeans, Twice, and Wonder Girls, who have also earned spots on the Hot 100.

In addition to debuting on the Hot 100, “Magnetic” also opened at No. 7 on the World Digital Song Sales chart, which regularly features many K-pop stars. The success of the single on multiple music charts demonstrates Illit’s growing popularity and potential for international success.

Illit’s EP, Super Real Me, also made an impact on the music charts, debuting at No. 5 on the World Albums chart and earning the group their first win on that ranking. Although the EP has since fallen slightly to No. 6 on the chart, its initial success highlights the band’s potential for continued growth and success in the global music industry.

The rapid rise of Illit and their debut single “Magnetic” on the American music charts is a testament to the group’s talent and appeal to a wide audience. As K-pop continues to gain popularity worldwide, Illit’s success on the Hot 100 and other Billboard charts further solidifies their position as a rising force in the music industry.

With their debut EP, Super Real Me, and the hit single “Magnetic,” Illit has proven that they have the potential to become a major player in the global music scene. As the group continues to gain recognition and success, fans can expect to see more chart-topping hits and exciting projects from Illit in the future.
