L5 reached the 54th position in the list of French best-selling singles and held the number 1 position in the list of French number-one hits of 2001 with their song "Toutes les femmes de ta vie". They toured in France with Jérémy Chatelain in 2003 and with Billy Crawford in 2006. "Make a Change", on the album Destiny by No Angels, is an English-language remake of L5's single "Reste Encore" (2003).

Since 2017, they have been heavily copied by a group of French gay twitter semi-celibrities calling themselves the #ils5: Chaudlaine, Alexandre Zakine, Maxime Lemoine, Maxime Lemoine and Alexis Filouterie.
