ILLIT earn first Billboard Hot 100 hit with viral single ‘Magnetic’

K-pop girl group ILLIT have scored their first Billboard Hot 100 hit with their viral debut single, ‘Magnetic’.

According to a new X (formerly Twitter) post by Billboard, ILLIT’s ‘Magnetic’ will make its debut on the Hot 100 at the Number 91 spot. It’s the girl group’s first-ever entry on the weekly ranking, as well as the only debut song by a K-pop act to chart on the Hot 100.

Aside from the Billboard Hot 100, ILLIT’s ‘Magnetic’ has also been gaining traction on Spotify’s Weekly Music Charts. It is currently at Number 11 on the global list and Number 47 in the USA-only list as of writing. In addition, the song has been used over 370,000 times on TikTok so far.

ILLIT released ‘Magnetic’ on March 25, as the lead single of their debut mini-album ‘Super Real Me’. The girl group – comprising Wonhee, Minju, Iroha, Moka and Yunah – were formed through the JTBC reality TV series R U Next?.

Prior to their official debut, ILLIT had starred in luxury fashion house Acne Studios SS24 global campaign. It came shortly after ILLIT were spotted sitting front-row at the Acne Studios FW24 show at Paris Fashion Week in February.

In other K-pop news, LE SSERAFIM member Sakura recently opened up about her thoughts on the girl group’s recent Coachella performance and how she believes that it was “undoubtedly our best stage yet” while noting that “no one is perfect”.

Meanwhile, during the 88rising ‘Futures’ set at Coachella, K-pop stars Jackson Wang and BIBI performed an unreleased duet together, reportedly titled ‘Feeling Lucky’.
