YUI’s latest song, “GLORIA,” topped the weekly charts with close to 81,000 in sales, giving her a fourth consecutive #1 single. She is only the second female singer-songwriter to achieve four in a row, after Hikaru Utada did it seven years ago.
Kumi Koda’s newest single came in at #2 this week, followed by Mika Nakashima and a “Hetalia: Axis Powers” character CD. Last week’s chart-topper by Nana Mizuki fell to #5.
The bottom half of the singles top ten were all new releases: Nakano Fujoshi Sisters, Kalafina, Guardians 4, Choshinsung, and Do As Infinity.
On the albums chart, GIRL NEXT DOOR came out on top with their sophomore album “NEXT FUTURE,” selling over 56,000 copies. THE YELLOW MONKEY (#6) and SOPHIA (#10) also made the top ten.
Meanwhile, Tegomass reached #1 on the overall DVD charts with their first tour DVD. The last music artist to rank #1 overall with a first DVD was RADWIMPS in 2007.
