AKB48 score their 16th million-selling single

AKB48's 34th single "Suzukake no Ki no Michi de 'Kimi no Hohoemi wo Yume ni Miru' to Itteshimattara Bokutachi no Kankei wa Dou Kawatteshimaunoka, Bokunari ni Nannichi ka Kangaeta Ue deno Yaya Kihazukashii Ketsuron no youna Mono" (released on December 11) sold 1,033,000 copies during the first week, and topped Oricon's latest weekly ranking.

With this single, the group has scored their 15th consecutive (and 16th in total) million-selling single.

AKB48 previously set a new record for the number of consecutive million-selling singles with their 33rd single "Heart Ereki", and now they have broken another record for the total number of million-selling singles which B'z kept for 13 years and 9 months.

When including the sales for this single, the total number copies sold for singles since their debut has reached 25,835,000 copies, which is the third highest record.


This is fun, only few more records left for AKB needed to break. IDC whatever other people will say haters gonna haters jealous people will just die because of envy

Nah. Records are meant to be broken. After all, it's just numbers.

Good for them and all, I just wish I could like one single. KFC is catchy but annoying at the same time, but their last 5 singles have been like the same sugary thing for me, and I have to believe the numbers are just because of popularity. =/ The last one I liked was hmmm...Gingham Check. NMB has cooler songs I think. Ah but it's just my taste though, surely a lot of people like them. X3
