Iwasa Misaki 2nd Single [Moshimo Watashi ga Sora ni Sundeitara] 1st Week Sales

Iwasa Misaki's 2nd solo single [Moshimo Watashi ga Sora ni Sundeitara] sold a total of 18,929 copies on it's first week on sale, to place 5th in the Oricon Weekly Singles Chart. Her debut single [Mujin Eki], sold 23,773 copies, for comparison. Wasamin was a few thousand copies off Cheeky Parade at number 3, but only just beat BABYMETAL, whose major label debut single [Ijime, Dame, Zettai] by 140 copies. These sales were important because it led Wasamin to become the first female enka singer in 40 years to have back-to-back top 5 singles.

Congratulations Wasamin on another top 5 single! Although sales were down on her debut, the percentage drop was a lot smaller than the other AKB soloists, and enka singles traditionally sell well in the long term, like Mujin Eki did.
