AKB48 Wins Coveted Japan Record Award
AKB48 has at last landed on top of the music industry as they won the most coveted prize in our industry the Japan Record Award .The award was given for their sales of “Flying Get”.
Maeda Atsuko barely holding her emotions in after receiving the award made the following remarks “To all the people who have cheered us on, to the staff who have supported us, Akimoto sensei, we are so grateful for everyone. Thank you so much!”
2011 was a tremendous year for AKB48 and a strong year for the idol genre in general ,2012 looks to be another strong year ,can AKB48 continue their consecutive million sales streak or will a newcomer rise up to challenge them ? The answers will start to play out soon.
