South Korean pop group LE SSERAFIM — an anagram of "I'm Fearless" — have recorded their highest placement on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 this week with new single "Easy" landing at No. 48. That's more than 50 spots higher than where the song landed on the American Hot 100, at No. 99, marking the group's first-ever entry there.

LE SSERAFIM first charted in Canada in 2023 with the Nile Rodgers-featuring "Unforgiven," and have had three charting songs here prior to "Easy," but have never cracked the top 50 until now. "Easy," a confident R&B-inflected track, is already their biggest hit to date and has only been out for two weeks. The song comes from their new EP of the same name, which entered the Billboard Canadian Albums chart at No. 73 this week. The EP also debuted on the Billboard 200 this week at No. 8, while TWICE's With YOU-th took the No. 1 spot, marking the first time that chart's top 10 has featured two all-women K-pop groups.
