Hit is something that has a wild success. The English word hit in its original sense means "blow", but today a hit, both in music and in many other areas of life, is called a hysterically successful creation, a "shot", a "bomb", the latest squeak of fashion and "mast-hev" .
In the music world, before perestroika, instead of a "hit", the German word " smash" was used to refer to a popular song. In commerce, the term "hit of sales" came into use, it is also a bestseller . And in cooking, for example, we can say that "avocado is a hit of the season".
