Veteran singer-songwriter, Matsutoya Yumi has topped the albums chart with her 40th anniversary best album, "Nippon no Koi to, Yuming to。". It has been 11 years since she achieved no.1 in the chart with her last time being her ballad best album, "sweet, bitter sweet YUMING BALLAD BEST" (November 2001), for a total of 22 no.1 albums overall. Yuming is ranked first among female artist with the most number of million-selling albums (9), and including the 22 no.1 albums, she has 58 total works also ranked, and has now reached an overall total sales of 30.154 million copies. She has set a milestone as the first female artist to have surpassed 30 million in album sales. Including singles, Yuming has now achieved the first place for 5 consecutive decades from 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s, breaking the record held by Tokunaga Hideaki, Kuwata Keisuke and Yamashita Tatsuro (all 3 artists achieved the first place in 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s). She is also the oldest female artist to reach no.1 at 58 years and 10 months old, breaking the record held by Takeuchi Mariya (now 57) who made it with "Expressions" (October 2008) when she was 53 years and 3 months old.

In the singles chart, Watanabe Mayu, soloist from popular idol group, AKB48 has reached the no.1 ranking with her 3rd single, "Hikaru Monotachi." Since her solo debut in February this year, this is her first time to achieve the top spot. In this year's AKB48 general election, Watanabe (18) is ranked second behind Oshima Yuko (24) and is seen as one of the candidates as the ace for the group's next generation.

Meanwhile, popular group KAT-TUN have achieved their 9th consecutive no.1 music-DVD, and 8th no.1 overall DVD with their latest live DVD, "KAT-TUN LIVE TOUR 2012 CHAIN TOKYO DOME." The latter achievement puts them at 3rd place among male groups after B'z and Mr.Children. The DVD contains footage from their final concert at Tokyo Dome as part of the group's nationwide tour, "KAT-TUN LIVE TOUR 2012 CHAIN," with the tour theme "CHAIN = Kizuna. Tsunagari."

Aww, MomoClo at no.2! It's also their best-selling first week so far if I'm not mistaken. Also congrats to Yuming, Miliyah, GENERATIONS and SID. And another big Kpop group is doing below expectation, but we'll see how their album will do.

Proud of KAT-TUN for getting that #1. I'm glad to have contributed even just 1 copy in those numbers.

And really happy for how well Mayuyu and Momoiro Clover Z charted as well. I'm loving both their new singles.(Y)
eevaleena 28th-Nov-2012 07:59 am (UTC)
Hoping for higher number for KAT-TUN, but... oh well! Congratulations my babies!!!

Mayuyu's debut single sold more, but this is her second highest sales.

sergel02 28th-Nov-2012 10:01 am (UTC)
That Miliyah figure depresses me considering her last two studio albums sold nearly 3 times that amount in their first week.
thewarpedmelody 28th-Nov-2012 10:25 am (UTC)

Was hoping SPYAIR can sell higher... T.T
