One of the group's 2005 songs, Lyudy Yak Korabli (Ukrainian: Люди Як Кораблі), spent a record 39 continuous weeks (as of the end of 2007) on FDR Radiocenter's Top 40, which began tracking Ukrainian radioplay in May 2002. In February 2006 Stari Fotohrafiyi (Ukrainian: Старі Фотографії) debuted at #1 on the chart and Padai (Ukrainian: Падай) similarly entered in the top slot three months later.
