KAT-TUN tops Oricon weekly chart for 20 consecutive singles since their debut single
Popular group KAT-TUN’s 20th single “EXPOSE“, which was released on February 6th, sold 155,000 copies during the first week, and topped Oricon weekly single ranking. With this single, their number of consecutive singles topping the chart has reached 20, as they’ve been topping the chart since their debut single “Real Face” (released in March 2006).
KAT-TUN is the second artist (including both male/female and solo/group) to top the single chart for 20 consecutive singles since the debut. It was only achieved by their senior KinKi Kids 8 years and a month ago with “Anniversary” (released in December of 2004). KinKi Kids is still renewing their record, and their number is now 32 consecutive singles since their debut single “Glass no Shounen” (released in July 1997).
