HKT48 1st Single [Suki! Suki! Skip!] 1st Day Sales
HKT48's debut single [Suki! Suki! Skip!] sold 205,278 copies on it's first day on sale to place number one in the Oricon Daily Singles Charts.
This is the highest first day sales from any 48 group's debut single, the previous highest being NMB48's [Zetsumetsu Kurokami Shoujo] with 131,654 copies. It even beat Nogizaka46's latest single (their 5th) released last week, [Kimi no Na wa Kibou] which sold 204,281 copies.
Congratulations HKT48! These are fantastic first day sales and I hope the trend continues throughout the week and also their momentum carries forward to their second single.
