PostSubject: Arashi and AKB48 help set a new record for singles sales   Mon Nov 01, 2010 1:36 am

J-pop idol groups, Arashi and AKB48, have help set a new record in singles sales according to Oricon.

For the 9/6 weekly rankings, this year’s total (dating from 2009.12.28-2010.8/29) has exceeded 34,087,000,000 yen. It’s been a whole five years since the fiscal year numbers have been surpassed. This surge was due in large part to Arashi’s “Troublemaker” (ranked no.1 during the week of 9/6 and sold 696,000 copies) and AKB48’s “Ponytail and chou-chou” (ranked no.3 and sold 630,000 copies).

When looking at the top 10 ranking artists, these two groups’ sales take up more than half of the total. Arashi took three spots: 1st with “Troublemaker”, 2nd with ”Monster” (692,000 copies), and 5th with “To be free” (507,000 copies). AKB48 also took three spots: “Ponytail and chou-chou” in 3rd, 4th with “Heavy Rotation” (592,000 copies), and 7th with “Sakura no Shiori” (385,000 copies).

Over the course of the past couple of years, music DVD sales have had a firm holding as well, with a 139.9% markup that is expected to continue for some time. Arashi’s “ARASHI Anniversary Tour 5×10” was #1 and sold 740,000 copies, while TOHOSHINKI’s “TOHOSHINKI VIDEO CLIP COLLECTION –THE ONE-“ ranked 2nd and sold 172,000 copies. Eight out of the ten spots were taken by male artists.

To the top To the top To the top, come with me

The memories that were carved haven't faded yet
Just giving yourself up to these days that are rolling by
This beating heart is searching for something It's still shaking even now

Even if what you see on the other side of the sky is an endless pain
We don't need the words that are always here
Every day, every night, every time, always That's right
With unshakable feelings

Our voices from those days are calling
To that tomorrow, it starts moving
You can hear it too, right? We don't need a reason
Surely, there isn't only one answer
There's a place we'll get to someday
If there's something I'm proud of So that it'll get to you
I'll go to a world I haven't seen yet
