[Heavy Rotation] 1st Week Sales
527,336 copies sold! Ponytail to Shushu sold 513,453 copies in its first week.And of course they took the no. 1 spot in the Oricon weekly chart.
AKB48 now hold the record of being the
1st female group and the 3rd female artist to have 2 consecutive Singles sell more than 500k in the first week (behind Utada Hikaru and Ayumi Hamasaki)
That's not all for this week, In the Recochoku (online music store for japan) weekly ranking, Heavy Rotation is ranked 1st for Ringtone downloads, Full Song downloads, Video downloads and Movie Downloads!
Congratulations with Heavy Rotation selling over 500,000! Even though there were lots of hopeful people who thought that Heavy Rotation would sell 500k in the first day due to the pervy PV and the amazing 650k shipment sales (yes I know, I admit to being one of those), there were just as many doubters that Heavy Rotation would not break the 500k mark this time due to the lack of special bonuses. Well, another reason why you shouldn't ever doubt Akimoto Yasushi.
