Idol group PASSPO made their major label debut with their single “Shoujo Hikou” on May 4th, taking the top spot on the single ranking chart.
According to the Oricon Single Ranking chart for May 16th, “Shoujo Hikou” has sold 43,000 units since its release less than a week ago, placing the cabin attendant-themed group at the top of the weekly chart. This marks the first time that a female idol group has taken first place on the charts with their debut single since pop duo Kiroro released “Nagai Aida” in 1998 – over thirteen years ago.
“I’m so happy that we had such a nice takeoff,” said captain Negishi Ai about the group’s success. “We’re truly grateful to our passengers (fans). From now on, we’ll do our best to not forget our rookie attitudes as we hold onto our aspirations and ride this updraft.”
Congratulations to PASSPO on their achievement!
