The album and the music video of the title track "Candy" have been reportedly sweeping the tops of most online Chinese music charts and portal sites.

Aside from that, Samuel has taken over the popular online celebrity lists. On November 17, one Chinese site ranked Samuel as the hottest topic in its list of the hottest celebrities and second in its list of current hot topics.
