SKE48 12th Single [ Utsukushii Inazuma] 1st week and 2nd week sales
SKE48's 12th single [Utsukushii Inazuma] ranked #1 both on their 1st week as well 2nd week on oricon charts. The single released on 17th July sold 510,673 copies while on their 2nd week they sold 94,577 copies which helped them bag the #1 spot again.
The last time a female group broke this record was Mini Moni back in 2001.
The single now has sold more than 600K copies.
Congrats to SKE! Even though their last single Choco no Dorei had 523K first week sale, getting #1 consecutively is also quite a feat!
