Group ILLIT's 'Magnetic' music video has surpassed 100 million views.

According to the agency Belif Lab on the 20th, the number of views on YouTube for the title song 'Magnetic' of Aillet's (Yoona, Minjoo, Mocha, Wonhee, Iroha) mini album 'SUPER REAL ME' was around 11:30 am on this day. It exceeded 100 million views.

It has been 85 days since it was released on March 25th. This is the third fastest trend based on the debut song music video of a K-pop girl group. The group Baby Monster took first and second place in the fastest time with their debut song 'SHEESH' and pre-debut song 'BATTER UP', respectively.

Ahead of the birth of Aillet's first billion-dollar music video, there has been explosive interest from global fans, and the number of views has recently increased sharply.

The popularity of 'Magnetic' has already stood out on major global music charts. This song entered the US Billboard main song chart 'Hot 100' (as of April 20th) at number 91 and the UK's 'Official Single Top 100' (as of April 5th) at number 80, making it the first and shortest K-pop debut song. A new entry record was created. 'SUPER REAL ME' also achieved the feat of entering the main album chart 'Billboard 200' at number 93 (as of May 11).

Aylet's 'Magnetic' is breaking various records on Spotify, the world's largest music streaming platform. 'Magnetic' surpassed 100 million streams within 56 days of its release and surpassed 200 million cumulative views (as of May 21) in about a month. This is also a new record for the shortest debut song by a K-pop girl group to reach the same number of views. As short-form dance moves such as 'Magnetic' became popular, their global popularity expanded and the period of time to reach hundreds of millions of Spotify streams was shortened.

'Magnetic' is a song that compares the honest and confident confidence of a teenage girl to a magnet, and received favorable reviews for expressing the attraction and excitement toward the person you like through the lyrics "super attraction." The music video is a pleasure to watch as it expresses the quirky and lively emotions of teenagers with fun elements. It depicts the situations and emotions felt by the five members, including the excitement of not being able to fall asleep easily, the joy of being with the members, and the worries in the face of difficulties.

Meanwhile, Aillet is scheduled to meet fans in Greater China for the first time by appearing at the '2024 TMEA 5th Tencent Music Entertainment Awards' to be held at the Galaxy Arena in Macau from the 19th to the 21st of next month.
