Yamada Ryosuke Single Debut 'Mystery Virgin' Tops Oricon Weekly Single Chart

Popular group Hey!Say!JUMP member Yamada Ryosuke’s (19) solo debut single “Mystery Virgin” (released on January 9th) sold 189,000 copies in the first week, and topped the Oricon weekly single chart for the week of January 21st.

It was the first time in 32 years and a month for a teenage solo male artist to top the chart with a debut single since Kondo Masahiko accomplished it with his debut single “Sneaker Blues” when he was 16 years and 5 months old.
This was also the first time in 27 years and 8 month for any teenage solo male artist to top the single chart after Kikkawa Koji (with “Nikumaresouna NEW Face” when he was 19 years and 9 months old), moreover, Yamada is the first male solo artist born in the Heisei period to top the single chart.

“Mystery Virgin” was used as the theme song to Nihon TV’s special drama “Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo  -  Hongkong Kowloon Treasure Murder Case” that was aired on the 12th.

Amazing. That is high number for solo act. He is really very popular in Japan. I bet J-storm will take this as a note for another his solo single. Well, as long as he still in Jump I won't complain :)

I think yamapi's daite senorita still the highest of solo debut then following by Jin's eternal.
but not bad yamada :)

It says for "TEENAGE solo debut" dear. That's why Yamapi & Jin wasn't included. Coz their debut solo was after their 20's.

he is the next big star of JE xD

but just hope he will always stay with Jump and not pulling a Yamapi/Jin thing after being successful soloist :P

But I don't think so. It's so obvious that he adores his group.

I'm really happy with how the sales were. It was so bad (for the people who wanted to get it) / good, that his single went oos at quite a couple of music stores, and you can't even get the LEs of his single online anymore.

Congrats Yamachan <3

Congrats, Yamachan! I really love this single, so I'm really happy with these sales. ♥

congratulation ryosuke<3

Congrats Yamada!! These are great sales!!

However, I'm loling a bit at this teenager definition. Dude is going to be 20 soon. Wasn't Yamapi also only 21? So officially, he wasn't a teenager anymore, but there is only 1,5 year difference...
When I hear 'teenager' I'm expecting someone between 13-17 years.
gray_fairy 15th-Jan-2013 04:45 pm (UTC)
It supposed that a teenager is someone between 13-19, you know, the "teen" years.

I like the song (even the title... is just so weird) and the dance is cool too...

But the lip-sync in all performance for this song------I CANT :-/
zero_shichi 15th-Jan-2013 11:14 pm (UTC)
I agree. I believe Yamada has the ability to sing and dance well even live so I don't understand why he has to. T_T It's disappointing that he lip-sync in all of his performances so far. (Honestly, if I want to see him dance and lip-sync, the pv's there for that.) I love Yamada's raw voice. Such a waste, somehow. DX

So proud and happy for him <333. I love when he calls all the JUMP members in the making off. Cutie pie <3.

*rubs cheek on her copies*
I'm so proud of this kid! I am very confident that he won't leave JUMP so I'm not worried at all.
