IU's latest album takes top spot on iTunes charts in 11 countries
IU’s fifth full-length album “Lilac” swept major music charts Friday a day after its release and took the top spots on iTunes’ album charts in 11 different countries.
"Lilac" features 10 songs and comes four years after IU's last album “Palette.”
The 29-year-old singer released two different physical versions of the album; “Bylac” to let go of her 20s and “Hilac” to welcome her 30s.
While the title track also called “Lilac” is getting the most attention, many of the other songs are also ranking high on charts.
In an attempt to show a different side of her herself, IU recorded a rap song titled “Coin.”
To commemorate the release of the album, she had also donated 100 million ($88,500) won to help out teenagers from single parent families and people with hearing impairments.
