AKB48's new album sells over 740,000 copies in the first week

AKP STAFF
AKB48
Popular idol group AKB48's 6th album "Koko ga Rhodes da, Koko de Tobe!" (went on sale on January 21) sold 747,000 copies during the release week, and it topped Oricon's latest album weekly ranking.

This is the group's 3rd consecutive album that marked the first week sales of over 700,000 copies.



This is also their 4th consecutive album to hit No.1 after "Koko ni Ita Koto" (June 2011), "1830m" (August 2012), and "Tsugi no Ashiato" (January 2014), and when including "Kamikyokutachi" (April 2010), it is their 5th chart-topping album.

For a female group, to have 5 No.1 albums in total is the tied record with Princess Princess and Perfume, but by hitting No.1 with 4 consecutive original albums since the 1st one, they have broken a female group's record kept by SPPED (with 3 consecutive albums) after 15 years and 1 month.
