Southern All Stars' first original album in 10 years tops Oricon chart

Southern All Stars
Southern All Stars released their first original album in about 10 years, "Budo", on March 31.�

The long-awaited album sold 300,000 copies during its first week and grabbed the top spot on Oricon's weekly album ranking.�When including their best-of albums, this marks their 17th chart-topping album.

With this album, the band proved their long-standing popularity as they have topped the album ranking for 4 consecutive decades with 7 albums in the 1980s, 7 albums in the 1990s, 2 albums in 2000s, and the latest album in the 2010s.�
Though 6 solo artists have accomplished the same previously (Tokunaga Hideaki, Kuwata Keisuke, Yamashita Tatsuro, Matsutoya Yumi, Himuro Kyosuke, and Takeuchi Mariya), Southern All Stars is the first one to do so as a group.

"Budo" contains a total of 16 tracks including "Piece to Highlight" -- their comeback single after an indefinite hiatus -- their latest single "Tokyo VICTORY", and more.
