[Sales] NEW RECORD! With #1 place as foreign artists on Japanese weekly Oricon charts

IT'S OFFICIAL!

Oricon just published the news here. (This post will be edited with the translation when it becomes available)

The single "Doushite kimi wo suki ni natte shimattan darou?" has ranked #1 in Oricon Weekly Charts, outselling its competitor Yui Aragaki.


The boys are now the only Foreign artist to get three #1's on the Oricon Weekly Chart for singles in Japan. The previous record holder was Ouyang FeiFei, who had two #1's on the Oricon. They're now the new record holder.



TRANSLATION:

The five member idol group Tohoshinki's third single Doushite Kimi Wo Suki Ni Natte Shimattandarou sold 68,000 copies in its first week. This is Tohoshinki's third consecutive #1 single on the weekly charts, making them the first group to achieve this.

Tohoshinki's singles Purple Line (1/28) and Beautiful You (5/5) and lastly Doushite Kimi Wo Suki Ni Natte Shimattandarou attained 1st place on the weekly charts. They are the first foreign group to achieve this feat. The last two groups who held the record were Ou Yang Fei Fei in 1971/72 and Ravisu Ova in 1984 whom each had two consecutive #1 weekly singles.

Tohoshinki, the male idol group, debuted in February 2004. The five members are Yunho, Jaejoong, Yoochun, Changmin, and Junsu. They debuted in Japan in April 2005 with their single, Stay with me Tonight.
