French Kiss 5th Single [Romance Privacy] 1st Day Sales
French Kiss placed #2 on the Oricon Daily Chart with first day sales of their 5th single [Romance Privacy]. They sold 47,194 copies, whilst first place NEWS sold 121,097 copies of their single Chankapana.
French Kiss's 4th single [Saisho no Mail] did reach number one on its first day salesm, with 66,582 copies, but released a day earlier than is standard. [Romance Privacy] also fails to beat the first day sales of their 3rd single [Kakkowarui I Love You!] which sold 56,334 copies.
These sales figures are quite a drop for French Kiss, hopefully they will pick up during the week. However, all members did rank lower in this years senbatsu election than last years, and the AKB48 release schedule is quite crowded at the moment.
