AKB48 previously set a new record for the number of consecutive million-selling singles with their 33rd single "Heart Ereki", and now they have broken another record for the total number of million-selling singles which B'z kept for 13 years and 9 months.

When including the sales for this single, the total number copies sold for singles since their debut has reached 25,835,000 copies, which is the third highest record.

Congrats AKB!  But now I'm curious, if AKB has the third highest record for total number of copies sold for singles, then who holds the top two spots, and how many records do those groups in 1st and 2nd have sold total?

I believe B'z is still #1 at over 50 millions copies of sales in single alone & Mr. Children's single sales is over 30 millions copies.
