Amuro Claims Best Opening Week for a Solo Act in 2012

Namie Amuro's latest studio album, "Uncontrolled," topped the Oricon album charts this week with sales of over 292,000 units. It becomes her 10th #1 album and has also claimed the title of best first week for an album this year by a solo artist, male or female. It tops former title holder, Ayaka, who sold over 208,000 units earlier in the year. "Uncontrolled" also makes Amuro the sixth solo female artist to claim #1 with an original album in three consecutive decades. She joins Yumi Matsutoya, Miyuki Nakajima, Mariya Takeuchi, Madonna and Ayumi Hamasaki. Amuro first topped the album charts in 1995 with her debut album, "DANCE TRACKS VOL.1." She later had her first #1 album of the new century with "GENIUS 2000" (2000).
