IU has once again blown people away with her new single “Celebrity”, which has been topping the charts since it was released on Wednesday. The song had reached No. 1 on the real-time charts of Bugs, Genie, and FLO and grabbed the top spot on Melon’s 24Hits chart.
It also soared on global charts, nabbing the first spot on the iTunes Song Chart in six countries, according to her agency, EDAM Entertainment.
“I’ve put extra effort into this song, hoping it will offer encouragement and condolences to my audiences,” IU said through the agency Thursday. “Celebrity” is one of the tracks from her fifth album, which she is preparing to release in the coming months.
The singer previously collaborated with BTS’ Suga for a track called “Eight”. The song dominated the itunes chart in 59 countries.
