Illit made history by debuting on Spotify’s daily top songs global chart with their lead track “Magnetic,” marking the first time a K-pop female group achieved this feat. Additionally, “Magnetic” entered Spotify’s weekly top songs global chart at No. 190, making it the fastest entry for a K-pop band on the chart.

Back home, the lead single quickly climbed Melon’s top 100 chart the day after its release and achieved top 10 rankings across all major music charts.
