Heavy Rotation Overtakes Arashi/Beginner Sales Update

16 11 2010

Up until last week, Arashi with their song Troublemaker was the no.2 best selling single of the year but no more. Heavy Rotation has just overtaken and pushed the boys down to no.3. Heavy Rotation’ sales has nudged ahead of them with 698,274 and looks good to break the 700k barrier next week. Troublemaker to date has sold 696,670 copies. It remains to be seen if Heavy Rotation can maintain being at no.2 with the fantastic sales that Arashi has had this week with their new single Hatenai Sora.

As for Beginner, the 3rd week sales has seen the single smash through the 900k barrier. It sold 25,452 copies to push the CD sales figures up to 915,945. Another historic achievement by AKB48. Congratulations – now let’s see them go one better and hit the million mark!
