Fifty Fifty’s hit song “Cupid” (2023) has again landed on three Billboard charts nearly a year after its release and breakthrough onto the Hot 100 singles chart.

The song sat at No. 9 on Word Digital Song Sales, No. 15 on the World Album chart and No. 197 on the Global 200 chart excluding the United States as of Thursday, according to the one-woman group’s agency Attrakt.

It has been almost a year since “Cupid” was released as a track in Fifty Fifty’s first single album “The Beginning: Cupid” on Feb. 24, 2023.

Fifty Fifty debuted in 2022 as a four-member group and found quick success with the song, becoming the fastest K-pop group to land on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

The original members of the group – Keena, Saena, Aran and Sio – filed an injunction in June last year to end their exclusive contract with the agency, citing that the company mistreated them and refused to share the income with the members.

Keena alone returned to the agency after dropping her case in October.

Attrakt terminated the contracts of all other members on Oct. 19 last year before a local court ruled in favor of the agency, dismissing the injunction.

Attrakt has been recruiting new members to join Keena and said auditions were underway in January to again make Fifty Fity a four- or five-member girl group.
