AKB48�s 17th single �Heavy Rotation�, which was released back in August of 2010, has come in at number one on Oricon�s Karaoke Ranking this week, making this their 43rd consecutive week at number one! Up until now, ORANGE RANGE�s �Hana� has held this record for six years with 42 consecutive first place wins.
�Heavy Rotation� was the result of AKB48�s �2nd Senbatsu General Election�, where Oshima Yuko took first place and was in the center position for the first time. This track was second to AKB48�s first million-seller �Beginner� in Oricon�s 2010 Yearly Ranking, selling 713,000 copies.
�Heavy Rotation� officially entered the karaoke ranking on September 13, 2010 at #12. It gradually moved up in rank until November 1, 2010, where it finally took the first place position and has continued to keep it for 10 months. More than a year after its initial release, �Heavy Rotation� is still in the TOP100 single ranking and is a song people love to sing at karaoke.
