V6's 45th single comes out on top of Oricon weekly ranking

V6's 45th single "Timeless", which was released on May 8 as the group's first release in their 20th anniversary year since debut, sold 93,000 copies, and it came out on top of Oricon's latest weekly ranking.

This is the 21st consecutive year for their singles to be ranked in the TOP 10 since their debut in 1995. With this single, the group made a record for "the number of consecutive years with TOP 10 singles." The group previously shared the record with B'z, SMAP�and Amuro Namie, but now V6 became the No.1 alone.

"Timeless" is the group's 27th No.1 single, and it is also their 45th consecutive TOP 10 single since their debut song "MUSIC FOR THE PEOPLE" (released in November 1995). Having 45 consecutive TOP 10 singles makes V6 comes out on the second place for the record of "number of consecutive TOP 10 singles since debut," tying them with Arashi. (The first place goes to SMAP with 54 consecutive singles.)

The title track of this new single is the theme song for TV Asahi's ongoing drama "Keishicho Sousa Ikka 9-gakari", which member Inohara Yoshihiko regularly appears in. Including the title track, the single album is themed around "a bond."
