IU’s new track immediately took the top spot on many major realtime charts!

On May 6 at 6 p.m. KST, IU shared her new digital single “eight,” which was produced by and features BTSSuga. IU and Suga both participated in the composition and lyrics for “eight.”

When the charts updated at 7 p.m. KST, they showed that “eight” debuted at No. 1 on Melon, Genie, Bugs, and more charts, and rose to No. 1 on Soribada (which updates every 10 minutes rather than each hour).

The track also hit the “roof” of Melon and Genie at its debut, meaning it recorded so many streams and downloads that it shot beyond the music sites’ standard graphs.

In addition, “eight” has broken the record for the most unique listeners in the first hour on Korea’s largest music site Melon. “eight” was listened to by 199,327 users in the first hour after its release.

The previous record was set in February by BTS’s “ON,” which recorded 123,489 listeners in the first hour. The record holder before that was IU’s “Love Poem,” which reached 121,111 listeners in the first hour after its release last November.

Are you loving “eight”?
