[Oricon] Kanjani8's singles take 1st-3rd spots
Kanjani∞ first ever to monopolize #1-#3 on weekly charts! Yokoyama: "I'm extremely happy"
7-member group Kanjani∞'s unprecedented 3-day consecutive release of 3 singles, has achieved sales that led to them taking the top 3 spots in this week's charts, making it the first time ever that any artiste has achieved a Top-3 monopoly in the weekly singles or albums charts. With this, they have also broken the record of artistes who have had two of their singles/albums in the Top 2 in one week (8 artistes have achieved this feat for singles including Matsuda Seiko, Southern All Stars, L'Arc~en~Ciel etc.). Member Yokoyama Yuu commented, "To be the first to get the Top 3 spots for a 3-day consecutive release, I am extremely happy".
This 3-day release started with the release of 'Gift~Shiro~' on the 23rd (117,000 copies), then 'Gift~Aka~' on the 24th (114,000 copies) and 'Gift~Midori~' on the 25th (114,000 copies). Compared to the singles that were released on Wednesday the 23rd, 'Gift~Aka~' and 'Gift~Midori~' spent 1 and 2 days less on the charts respectively, yet still managed to set records at the end of the week, this is the result of the degree of their popularity.
