Today saw SKE48 release their 6th single and their first since moving to avex trax called “Pareo wa Emerald”. They seem to be breaking their own sales record with each new single and this one has done extremely well on it’s first day. They’ve managed to smash the overall sales total for “Banzai Venus” in just 1 day as “Pareo wa Emerald” sold 264,492 copies which is fantastic. What a double celebration for Rena Matsui. Not only does she have her 20th birthday today but gets to hear this wonderful piece of news as well. Their nearest rivals today was way behind in the distance selling only 20k. SKE48 have a sold chance of cracking the 300k barrier before next week’s charts. Well done girls on your achievement.
