AKB48 Sets A New Record



AKB48 Sets A  New Record

This actually took place on the 19th   ,however I was not feeling well enough to  cover it. On September 19 AKB48`s “Flying Get” passed the 1.5 million mark in sales . This made AKB48 the first female group ever to have two consecutive singles reach that number.  “Everyday Kachuusha” sold 1.573 million copies and currently “Flying Get” has 1.521 million in only four weeks.

Because of this sales result AKB48 becomes just the fifth artist to achieve back-to-back singles that have reached 1.5 million in sales, after B'z, Mr. Children, KinKi Kids, and Utada Hikaru. In the great history of Japanese music,no female group in any genre has sold back-to-back 1.5 million copies of a single .This is an amazing run they are currently on.
