AKB48 – Sakura no Ki ni Narou 1st Week Sales

22 02 2011

With the 1st week of sales over and done with, what was the final figure for the first 7 days? Well, the single sold an incredible 942,000 copies to move up 1 place in the all-time best selling singles over 1 week to no.6. AKB48 are the first group/artist to break the 900k barrier in this century and also have the honour of being the 2nd group to achieve a streak of 7 no.1 singles. The last group to have the same level of success was Pink Lady and that was way back in 1978.

Well done girls!
